Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta information:

We will run the ferry timetable below BUT we are required to stop the passenger ferry during air displays. This can be for extended periods and we will run the ferry as often as we can when permission to resume is given by the Harbour Authority. Ensure you allow plenty of time to cross the river should you need to catch the steam train (or local bus services).

We are also required to stop the ferry service during the fireworks displays on Thursday and Saturday evenings. Displays are scheduled to start at 21:00.

Note: we will not schedule the usual evening meal break.
