TImetabled ferry service

Travel on Bristol's original ferry, operating 364 days a year...

Our blue and yellow ferryboats began running in 1977 and have since become one of Bristol's unique icons, a bright and friendly presence which can be seen all year round. 


We provide a community focused, friendly ferry service and we pride ourselves on our unrivalled reliability: Visitors are safe in the knowledge that we run our service every day except Christmas day come rain or shine; they can always expect a warm Bristol welcome from our staff.


Our crew are very passionate about their jobs and this city - we like to make sure that locals and visitors have all the information they need to get the best from their time here so please don't hesitate to ask questions or chat and don't be surprised if the onboard crew end up personalising one of the free city maps to suit your interests.


We're an unsubsidised, not for profit company - everything we make beyond our running costs goes back into providing a better service for Bristol and improving and preserving our fleet of boats for the future.


Come and join us on Bristol's scenic waterways, use us to commute to work, go to the station or the shops, have an afternoon drink at a harbourside pub or simply relax, watch and listen to the water.
