Ferries & Water Taxis

Place Ferry
From St Mawes you can pick up the Place Ferry that will take you over the water to Place Manor where you can pick up the Southwest Coastal Path. The little ferry runs from March to November, 7 days a week from 9am to 5.45pm.

Falmouth Ferry
The foot ferry journey from St Mawes to Falmouth is a pleasant run and makes for a good day out without having to use the car. The ferry runs between St Mawes Harbour and Falmouth every 30 minutes throughout the year. There is both a summer timetable and a winter timetable and these can be found on the Fal River website.

Water Taxis
The RIB Paramour is perfect for those visits to secluded coves or a fast trip up the Fal to the Pandora Inn for lunch. It takes a maximum of 8 people and the cost to the Pandora Inn for lunch is £30, one way to Falmouth is £25 and to do a Wild Swim off the boat it is £70 for an hour.
