Mevagissey Fowey Ferry Boat Harbour Tour Cornwall Sea | John Wood Sale Tourist Attraction | The Cormorant Hotel Golant The Fowey to Mevagissey ferry will be under new ownership shortly, after its owner put it up for sale.

Local John Wood has decided to step out of the ferry business after 14 years transporting passengers between Fowey and the scenic fishing village of Mevagissey.

The ferry route, popular with visitors to hotels in Fowey, has been John's passion, but with retirement looming the route looks set to have a new owner by next summer's season.

The ferry is up for sale for £350,000 but John says he won't be leaving Fowey.

"The bay is one of the most beautiful in the country," John told the Western morning News.

"I have a kayak so I'll still be putting to sea to enjoy the views and the wildlife but I'll miss the interaction with the public."

Visitors to The Cormorant will still be able to enjoy getting on board the ferry though, which is unique because its wheel house is not separated from the passenger compartment.

That means passengers can sit and chat with the captain of the ferry while he's at the helm.

The ferry can carry 50 passengers across the bay from Mevagissey to Fowey and back again, and runs between April and October.

With five trips a day it's a valuable asset to both Fowey and Mevagissey.

So why not venture out and visit both Fowey and Mevagissey using the ferry this summer?
