Please note that our last scheduled day of service for the Western Lady Ferry is Thursday 1st October.

The decision to cease services from 2nd October onwards is due to the current social distancing legislation. A significant proportion of our ferry seats are outside and with the weather turning autumnal most passengers will obviously seek out interior seating. This in turn results in much more limited capacity.

We do hope you understand and we thank you for all your support throughout this most extraordinary season and we very much look forward to welcoming you all again when we restart our services next spring.

We wish you all well - look after each
other and do stay safe….

P.S. We have left all the 2020 details below for your information only.

"Western Lady" have been operating a fine ferry service between Brixham & Torquay for over 70 years.

The 30 minute ferry ride across the Bay to Brixham and returning to Torquay is a stress-free delightful way to view Torbay from the sea, especially when the sun is shining!

Under the proud umbrella of Dartmouth Steam Railway & River Boat Company you can be assured of receiving the best service at the best price for your ferry across The Bay.

Look out for our cream and blue boats Western Lady VI and Western Lady VII. We look after our valued passengers with many returning to us every year.
