TWO FERRIES OPERATING FROM MONDAY 24 JULY!

Ideal timing for visiting Appledore or Instow and having lunch in one of the lovely cafes, pubs and restaurants.  Both ferries will be operating during the summer school holidays so plenty of room for everyone.

The timetables for the months July to October are now online so you can plan your trips on the ferry throughout the season.  The days when there are NO SERVICE indicates the tides do not match with the ferries operating hours - 0930h to 21h with a minimum of two hours' operation.

TANDEMS AND BICYCLE TRAILERS

The fares for the ferry remain the same for another season which allows us to cover our costs as a not for profit company.  The ferry is licensed to carry twelve people and two crew, which includes the skipper.  The ferry is able to take buggies and bicycles but the skipper will make a decision if there are some large buggies and a number of bicycles, to balance the number of passengers, buggies and bicycles - so please be patient if you are not able to get on the first available ferry.

We have made the decision to charge £3 for tandems and if a bicycle has a trailer there will be a cost of £1.50 for the trailer.

WOULD YOU BE INTERESTED IN SPONSORING THE FERRY?

The Appledore Instow Ferry is a not for profit company and has endeavoured to keep the prices as low as possible.  However, we do need to cover the costs of running two boats and sponsorship is the perfect way for companies and businesses to show their support for the ferry operation and advertise their business, as you can see from the logos on the Home page.  For more information please use the Contact Us page and one of us will be in touch with you.

THE FERRIES ARE NOW TWEETING

Follow the ferries' news and status on @appleinstferry.  If the ferry cannot operate due to high winds a message will be put on Twitter and of course Facebook.
