Mount Batten Ferry Service

The service operates between the historic Barbican and the Mount Batten peninsula. We operate all year round, 363 days a year.

The service is an ideal and frequent way for commuters, shoppers, tourists, walkers and people on a night out with our hop on/hop off ferry link.

The Barbican is the heart of the historic part of Plymouth, great for a day out, enjoying the shops and bars and the beautiful walks on the Plymouth Hoe. Only a 10 minute walk into the city centre shops and cafe’s.

Mount Batten offers great coastal walks, fishing, bars and restaurants, Yacht Haven marina and the lovely Mount Batten Centre. Only a 10 minute walk to the quaint village of Turnchapel with is great pubs.

We depart the Barbican at quarter past and quarter to the hour, Mount Batten on the hour and half hour. Operating every 30 minutes
