We collected our tickets from the kiosk at Brixham Harbour where the member of staff was pleasant and friendly, as were the crew on the boat. The weather obviously plays a part in a trip such as this and we had a lovely sunny day. The boat used is relatively small and we were among only 12 passengers allowed on the upper deck. Passengers joining at Paignton or Torquay would have little chance of an upper deck seat. We live locally so didn't really need a commentary but the commentary was good. Having walked the stretch of coast along which we travelled, it was great to see it from the sea. We had a good view of seals and sea birds as well as interesting geological features. We were given maps of Teignmouth and a list of train times back to Torbay. It was nice to be able to choose how long we stayed in Teignmouth. Being bus pass holders we didn't use the train tickets which were included in the trip, returning instead on the bus along the coast but are familiar with the pleasant train journey along the River Teign. All in all a most enjoyable day out. read less..

Saw sea birds and a kingfisher. My sister and I specifically chose WeFerry as we wanted to sypport this local family business that is struggling to compete against their competitor. Highly recommend. read less..

The coastal scenery, open ocean, sea spray, cormorants, gannets, seals and we were even lucky enough to see porpoise. Wildlife obviously can't be guaranteed but the trip is still very much worth it to see the coastline from the sea. The commentary was varied mentioning wildlife, geology, local buildings, history and not too dominating so you could still talk with your fellow passengers. This trip gets a huge thumbs up from me and if we return I would not hesitate to go again.
Right from the start the WeFerry team where friendly and accommodating. I use a wheelchair so always do some research and contact companies first. John the captain took time to answer my questions about accessibility and discuss the trips without judgement or hurry.
There is no getting away from the fact that boats are tricky to access and the movement of the waves makes standing a challenge. But the crew did everything they could to assist all passengers on and off. The walkway and jetty is step free. There are 3 good sturdy steps, up to the boat with a hand rail and 5 good sturdy 'stair case' style steps into the boat. They are steep but the crew are very willing and even asked how best to offer an arm, support me etc. They helped lift my transportable chair onto the boat. At no point were any of us rushed.
There is a RADAR key loo on the harbourside before you get to the boat.
Price - We both felt that the trip was under-priced and well worth more. We paid 12 for the two of us (concession tickets) for over an hours trip.
I had a really memorable time and am still buzzing from the trip. Thank you to all the crew. read less..
