How much is the Salcombe to East Portlemouth Ferry now? Does anyone remember from last year?

I reckon the ferry cost is minimal compared to the other drains on the wallet involved in Salcombe week!  If memory serves £1.40 for adults each way but under 5's go free, didn't try a bike or an older child last year.

Believed to be the most expensive ferry in Europe per mile !!

But still cheaper than hiring a motor boat for the Week.

bikes and older children don't float as well as the ferry.

I am not sure but the four ferries to the Isle of Wight are per mile a lot more that the 800 yards at the most in Salcombe, even for a corkhead and the reduced ethnic fares, it is licensed theft. In these times of high inflation some vendors are having a laugh at our expense Post Office included!

When we first went to Salcombe in 1963 (and won!) I think it was either 6d i.e. one 40th of £1 or a shilling i.e. a 20th. In those days we hired rowing dinghies, rowing home against a spring ebb tide after a hard race was good for the waistline. While dodging the tide close to the shore there were usually swimmers to watch out for so we didn't decapitate them.
