Cawsand Ferry Information
The Cawsand Ferry service has been operating for more than one hundred years, connecting Plymouth to the beautiful beaches and villages of Cawsand and Kingsand.
Part of the fabric of the community, The Weston Maid or Red Pig, as she’s affectionately known by the locals, offers a 30 minute sailing to and from the Barbican Landing Stage in Plymouth, directly onto Cawsand Beach.
A 40ft purpose built passenger vessel, The Weston Maid is a celebrity in her own right, built as a lifeboat for the ocean liner, Canberra. An extremely elegant and famous passenger ship, The Canberra was the first ship in the world to have lifeboats specifically designed to slot neatly into compartments in the side of the ship, and could also transport passengers from ship to shore.
The trusty Weston Maid has travelled many thousands of miles all over the world, with true pedigree! The Weston Maid is M.C.A. Licensed to carry 62 passengers and two members of crew.
