Pay the ferryman (except for dogs)

Single adult fare of£1.60 is great value as the car parking is not cheap and you can have a couple of ales.

The friendly seal

The Teign passenger ferry ploughs its way from Shaldon beach to Teignmouth and back just about every day of the year. It is great fun for the children and if you are lucky you might spy the friendly grey seal that pops its head up in the estuary from time to time. Look out for cormorants diving for fish and if the water ripples - then a whole shoal of mackerel or other small fish are under the surface.

There is a friendly local seal who often pops his head up to say hello to people using the ferry.
