FAQ's - Torpoint Ferry

We have to obey the Queen's Harbour Master, the official responsible for the safety of shipping using the Port of Plymouth, and we are often instructed to stop and wait for other shipping to pass over the ferry chain tracks.

This is particularly common for Navy vessels of UK or other countries that are using the dockyard (they also have big guns so we don't argue with them!). These normally only cause minor delays but sometimes multiple movements in a short space of time or a very slow vessel can throw the timetable out for a fair while afterwards.
