Dartmouth Castle Ferry

Dartmouth Castle Ferry

8 miles from Gitcombe Estate

Description: The famously beautiful Dart Estuary should really be enjoyed from a boat and the Castle Ferry with its traditional open launches is one of the best and simplest ways of getting close to the water – an authentic Dartmouth treat. The trip passes our unique Lower Ferry – the last remaining tug and float ferry in England, ancient Bayards Cove, with its cobbled quay and fort and waterfront houses which were once warehouses and boat-building yards. You may well see the elegant 1924 paddle steamer, Kingswear Castle, on one of her excursions. She has recently returned after decades away to grace the river where she was built. There is a good chance you may see one of our resident grey seals or even a leaping Dart salmon and we will try to point out other rarities as we go…
