Pricing and key information

'Welcome' is an aluminium landing craft.

This means the bow door lowers down to form a small ramp and so you can easily walk straight on and off without any steps or having to climb over the side. Because of this, she is perfectly accessible to both wheelchairs and pushchairs. 

The Ferry is priced as follows:

£5.00 per person each way

Babies under 1 year free 

Dogs free 

We will be running 'Welcome' as a ferry service daily from the middle of May until the end September, weather permitting 1 and a half hours either side of high tide.  

She can carry a maximum of 11 persons.
