The ferry takes 139,000 passenger on 2.8 mile journey every year, saving them what would be a 29 mile journey.

Three boats make up the fleet of ferries that sail from Falmouth to St Mawes; Duchess of Cornwall, May Queen and Queen of Falmouth. Since launching in 2007, Duchess has travelled enough miles between Falmouth and St Mawes to have completed four trips around the world.

More Information about the St Mawes Ferry

About :: The St Mawes Ferry connects the old world fishing harbour of St Mawes with the bustling port of Falmouth. The ferry provides an all year round service to 139,000 visitors a year and is an absolute must for anyone visiting Cornwall.

The Route :: Passing the impressive castles of St Mawes & Pendennis, the ferry route takes you on a magical journey across the Carrick Roads. As well as the castles you will see many large ships, the working docks of Falmouth, Black Rock (a local isolated shipping hazard) and if you're lucky some of the dolphins and basking sharks that regularly visit the harbour.

The Ferries :: The classic wooden ferries depart every hour during the winter and up to four times an hour during the summer. Capacity is never a problem as each ferry can carry up to 100 passengers and covered seating is provided in case we get some of that ‘Cornish Liquid Sunshine'. The cruise across Falmouth Bay to St Mawes is simply magical on our classic wooden ferries.
