Ferry in sunshiny weather

Running to Schedule

South Sands Ferry


We are starting our schedule on the 10th April 2021 and hope, after a challenging 2020, that the sun will shine and the water will be warm for everyone visiting Salcombe this year.

We still ask that our everyone wears a face coving to keep all our passengers and crew safe and we are still restricting passengers numbers to around 20 on each trip, until we feel it's safe to go back up to our licensed 30.  Credit or Debit cards are the only form of payment accepted.

We still urge everyone to follow the Government guidelines and stay safe.

Carrying foot passengers, prams and dogs the South Sands Ferry is a rare opportunity to travel by boat and experience the famous 'Sea Tractor', which travels out into the water to greet the ferry as it arrives at South Sands Beach.

The South Sands passenger Ferry runs between Whitestrand, in the centre of Salcombe, and the picturesque beach of South Sands, located at the entrance to Salcombe harbour.

Sometimes hectic, sometimes quiet, but always exciting!
