One of delights of driving in Cornwall along the coastal route is crossing beautiful rivers via these two Cornwall car ferries.
The Bodinnick Ferry is perfect for anyone wishing to travel on day trips to the towns of Looe or Polperro in eastern part of Cornwall. As well as Fowey and other towns and villages further across to the western areas of the county. The ferry crosses the beautiful River Fowey in just a few minutes.
The ferry can accommodate up to fifteen cars and is also used to carry foot passengers and motorbikes. Vehicles up to ten tonnes in weight are also welcome to use this service. Such as camper vans, mini buses and smaller lorries. Please note that coaches are not suitable. This is due to the access roads leading down to the ferry.
The service is open for 362 days of the year. It is only closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day.

King Harry Ferry
The King Harry Ferry links St Mawes and Roseland with Truro and Falmouth crossing the Fal river. The service is very popular all year round. Using the ferry cuts out around 30 miles of driving using the alternative route. As a result it is very popular all year round, with both local commuters and tourists.
The service operates daily. Every 20 minutes from each side, up until 10pm in the summer months and up until 7pm in the winter months. The crossing takes around 10 minutes. There is plenty of time to take in the views of one of Cornwall’s deepest and most spectacular rivers.
