Brightlingsea itself is a historic cinque port with a rich heritage close to the mouth of the Colne Estuary where it meets the Blackwater and Thames Estuaries.
As well as the cultural aspect Brightlingsea is an exciting, fun place to explore no matter what your age is, whether it be an afternoon crabbing, a ramble along the beach taking in the stunning views or simply a nice lunch in one of our many delightful eateries. Our Harbour ferry provides not only a means of crossing the creek but opens up opportunities to explore the local area and attractions.
Use of the ferry greatly reduces road miles – typically a round trip by road between Brightlingsea and St Osyth is 20 miles but takes just 3 minutes on the ferry. The round trip by road to East Mersea is 40 miles, but only takes approximately 9 minutes by ferry.
The safety of our passengers is of absolute importance to us. Passenger are required to book onto the ferry in advance by calling the office on 01206 302200 or in person and will be allocated a seat.
