PADDLE STEAMER  WAVERLEY BOAT TRIP

FROM FOWEY TO PLYMOUTH

Friday 30th August 2024

 

 

As our earlier trip on Waverley got cancelled we are now planning on a trip to Fowey to catch the famous Paddle Steamer Waverley,  the world's last seagoing paddle steamer for an approx 3 hour  trip to Plymouth.  This is the first time the Waverley has sailed from Fowey taking in the Rame Heritage Coast as it heads to Plymouth.  

 

A chance to watch the mighty steam engine start to drive the ship's massive paddlewheels. 

 

Please note that the Waverley will anchor off Fowey Town Quay and passengers will transfer from the Quay via small tender boats. Unfortunately wheelchairs are not able to transfer via tender boats.

The coach will drop off at Fowey car/coach park and it is a steep walk downhill to the town however there is a regular town bus service which  tickets can be purchased (bus passes not accepted) 

 

 

Coach departs Forde Park 09.30 (tbc)  followed by the following pickups, Railway Station (park side)  Old Grammar School, Exeter Road & Ashburton Road route out of Newton Abbot.

 

Cost coach & senior ticket for Waverley £49.00

 

Non refundable deposit £25 with booking balance due by 30th July.
