Q. Where does the ferry depart from?

A. Most of the time we catch the ferry from the “Plymouth Landing Stage”, the ferry is privately hired, so if you miss your departure time, we may not be able to get you across to the Island.

If the departure changes for any reason, we will let all booked on players know in advance.
