About us

Plymouth Boat Trips is the South West’s premier cruising, ferry and fishing company. From sight-seeing cruises, private charters and party nights to connecting ferries and fun packed fishing trips – there’s something for everyone! Located on the Barbican, where our boats depart, the Plymouth Boat Trips booking office and The Boathouse Cafe next door, provide the perfect place to meet before you set sail……

Ferries

Hop on board one of our foot ferry services, connecting the city of Plymouth and Devon and Cornwall.

Take the historic Cremyll Ferry, just an eight-minute crossing from Admirals Hard to Cremyll in Cornwall. Or try the new Barbican, Royal William Yard & Mount Edgcumbe ferry service, linking three iconic destinations on the water. Experience the restaurants, bars and boutique shopping at Royal William Yard, the historic house and acres of stunning Country Park at Mount Edgcumbe in Cornwall and Plymouth’s historic Barbican, a short walk from the city centre.

Providing both seasonal and year-round crossings, whether you are a local commuter or an explorer wanting to see further afield, our ferry crews offer a warm welcome on board.

Cruising

Explore local history and heritage and soak up the sights aboard our one-hour harbour cruise. Take your time, sit back and relax on one of our longer half day trips to Cotehele, Calstock or River Yealm, as we journey along the River Tamar, flanked by the stunning Devon and Cornish coasts.

Private Charter

Our fleet of cruise boats, ferries and fishing boats are all available for private charter. From birthdays, weddings and family celebrations to inspirational corporate events, our floating venues provide the wow factor for your special occasion.

Fish N Trips

Our boat fishing trips offer an exciting activity that’s suitable for all. We offer individual bookings or private charter trips. From family days, corporate team building and educational trips to birthday treats, hen and stag parties – fishing is a fantastic way to get out on the water, have fun and learn more about the local marine environment.

The main target is mackerel, however, we catch lots of different species throughout the year. After catching enough mackerel and bait for yourselves, we make for one of the reefs or wrecks in the area, where we hope to catch other species, such as herring, whiting, gurnard, cod, dog fish, even pollock, pouting, ling and the infamous conger eel!

All equipment and safety gear is provided on board so you don’t need to bring a thing, simply dress for the weather!

After your day’s fishing, why not relax and have your catch prepared and cooked for you at The Boathouse Cafe, situated on the quayside.
