Welcome to the Dartmouth Higher Ferry

The Higher Ferry operates between Dartmouth and Kingswear (at the northern end of the embankment adjacent to the popular Floating Bridge Inn and the renowned Dart Marina Hotel). The crossing forms part of the A379 between Torbay and Plymouth. Please note that credit and debit cards are not accepted at the present time.


If you have a business, with multiple vehicles, not exceeding 7,500kg and are looking for a simple way of travelling on the Higher Ferry, without the hassle of purchasing the standard concession tags, then look no further. Join our growing membership of fleet card users.

An easier way to manage your company’s travel costs:

No more cash purchases to manage.

Ideal for business with multiple vehicles.

Monthly electronic invoicing

This does not replace the current system of purchasing the normal travel tags.
