About The Ferry
This is the 5th year in operation and is a joint venture between the Littlehampton Town Council, the Littlehampton Yacht Club, Robert Boyce and the East/West Beach Cafes. The ferry service links the town centre with the sandy beaches, golf course and yacht clubs on the West bank of the River Arun. The boat was specifically sourced in Florida in the US and was shipped over to the UK to become the first and only one of its kind to operate in the UK. It is a pontoon boat that is very stable and capable of carrying 12 passengers (and skipper) and is run over the holidays and summer months. There is luxury seating for 12 and a sun canopy. There are dedicated pontoons on either side of the river for easy access. The ferry can carry buggies, bikes and well behaved dogs. There are 2 easy access gates so passengers can step aboard with ease.
Disable access is possible from the East and West Banks. Please call ahead to let us know your requirements.
Advertising on the Ferry
There are several spaces for local businesses to advertise with their logos. If you are interested in promoting your business on the side of the ferry and in our leaflets then please get in touch.
