There has been a crossing of the Tamar from Stonehouse in Plymouth to Mount Edgcumbe in Cornwall since the 12th century; Sir Francis Drake, Sir Walter Raleigh and Admiral Nelson are sure to have used it. Tamar Cruising doesn't go back that far, but they do operate the only ferry to make this crossing nowadays. It a passenger-only ferry and starts up before 7am on weekday mornings. They also run many cool cruises from the Mayflower Steps on Plymouth's Barbican. The Plymouth Sound I is a fine Waterbus vessel, built for comfort and enjoyment, which will take you out on the water to see the Sound, the Dockyard and Warships, a four hour cruise to Calstock, the River Yealm and many other local sites. Another favourite is the Barbeque Cruise, which lands at Mount Edgcumbe for a barbecue after cruising in local waters. They have several other vessels, all well equipped for wedding and other celebrations, or even a party disco.
