The Dartmouth Steam Railway & River Boat Company has added a third passenger ferry between Dartmouth and Kingswear on the River Dart. It also links Dartmouth to Kingswear steam railway station.

The company’s own ‘Fat Controller’ assists passengers joining the ferry. These measures are in response to increased demand for the steam trains, ferries and boats – also prompting new ticket and service offers.

Dartmouth Day Cruises are reduced almost 70% to £5 per person; and a “Brixham Triangle” has been added in response to the demand for a ferry service to link Brixham with historic Dartmouth.

Earlier this year, the company launched its “Teignmouth Circular” service, which offers a spectacular cruise along the South Devon coastline to Torquay and a bus service back to Teignmouth.
