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..

Went down on spec yesterday at end of a break in the town and realised had missed the Western Lady and came across this company which I was not familiar with.
They guy in the kiosk held the 11.30 a.m. ferry for us and we bought two return tickets for a grand total of £6. What a bit of luck.
It transpires WeFerry are the last independent family run ferry company operating here. What a difference too....the crew were lively and funny plus informative...our boat called at Paignton on the way to Torquay and we loved the trip.
Got their direct service back at 1.30 p.m. and the Captain gave us a treat I have never experienced before by taking us on a mini coastal trip under the Imperial Hotel for a chance to see some of the spectacular rock formations beyond it - stopping to allow us a photo opportunity.
He then headed back providing fascinating information about other vessels including taking us alongside a spectacular Norwegian sailing ship, a run-down of the two main fishingmethods used by the Brixham fleet and details of the old Brixham sailing beamers anchored in the harbour.
All this made for a most enjoyable return trip - never bettered before.
So I say - use this company rather than they big boys. They are local, independent and great fun.
To be honest for a return price of £3 per person it is worth going just for the fun of the sailing trip.
They also operate a wide range of fishing trips. read less..
