Teignmouth – Shaldon Ferry

Englands Oldest Passenger Ferry


The passenger ferry operates a continuous daily service between Teignmouth and Shaldon.

Not only does it provide an essential link between Teignmouth and Shaldon for residents and visitors, but also access to local walks such as the South West coast path that continues along the coastline from Minehead, Somerset to Poole Harbour in Dorset.

Whilst we operate all year round, we do have restricted service in the winter months, please see our Facebook page for updated times or ring us to find out more. During busy periods in the summer we can operate both Ferries to keep up with demand.

Dogs, bicycles and pushchairs are all welcome but please be aware that the ferry is accessed from the beach for all landings. Where possible the Ferry staff will do their best to assist with pushchairs.

Service operates between Teignmouth back beach, near the Lifeboat House and Shaldon Beach.

Our Ferries are regularly inspected and carry full safety equipment.
