St Mawes Ferry

One of Cornwall’s iconic boat trips, the St Mawes Ferry makes the crossing from Falmouth harbour to St Mawes 364 days a year.

 

The 20 minute journey takes in the world-class scenery of the Carrick Roads which includes two historic castles and a wealth of marine life.

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, Mayqueen 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 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 three 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'.
