Salcombe Harbour and the Kingsbridge Estuary are located on the southern-most tip of the South Hams peninsula in Devon, England. This area of outstanding natural beauty is arguably one of the most desirable holiday locations within the United Kingdom.
Sandy white beaches, rolling green countryside and sparkling blue waters paint an incredibly picturesque backdrop, whilst the characterful market town of Kingsbridge and the thriving seaside resort of Salcombe make it impossible not to fall in love with the local area.
Connecting the two towns is the Kingsbridge Estuary which meanders its way north to south, a little over 5 miles and includes various side channels and independent creeks such as Frogmore and Southpool. The calm, sheltered bays and stunning waterside scenery create an ideal location for mooring your multi-million pound luxury yacht, or alternatively, for taking a riverboat cruise aboard our passenger ferry!
Following a change of ownership in 2019, the connecting service between Kingsbridge and Salcombe has undergone a series of improvements, the most recent of which arrived in the form of our new passenger vessel; the Lady Mary. Originally serving a similar role on the Fal River in Cornwall, the Lady Mary has been heavily overhauled and re-fitted, allowing her to serve purposefully, operating out of Salcombe Harbour.
Our ambition is to provide an authentic and unforgettable experience for anyone visiting the South West; to capture the essence of the Kingsbridge Estuary and Salcombe Harbour, all from the safety and comfort of a dedicated vessel. We operate various services throughout the spring, summer and autumn months including direct journeys (back and forth) as well as harbour cruises and private trips/events. Suffice to say, we are beholden to the tidal patterns of the region, so ensure you check our timetable before committing to a plan!
We love to hear from our passengers as there is often a story to tell or experience to share. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch or leave feedback, as it is this kind of positive impact that keeps us so passionate about running the service.
