Ferry Service

The Lady Grace is also available for launch service to get to and from your boat, for both local and visiting yachtsmen. I can be contacted either on my mobile; 07791 859 624 or by the VHF on channel 72, call sign “Lady Grace”. We have many places to eat at Mersea for both visiting yachtsmen and visiting tourists including;

The Art Café and the Blackwater Pearl for light snacks and full English breakfasts;

The Coast Inn and The Victory for great traditional meals and beverages;

And not forgetting the well-known “Company Shed” and the “Oyster Bar” which are extremely popular for their locally caught fresh fish to eat in and the option of taking fillets of fish and pots of shell fish home for another day. Needless to say, both the Company Shed and the Oyster Bar sell our local Native Oysters, of which Mersea is famous for.

Mersea is definitely a port to put on your list to visit. If you visit Mersea during Mersea week in the summer, you will also catch all the entertainment of music, the travelling fair, bagpipes playing through the town, the local yacht racing, rowing races, greasy pole and our excellent display of fireworks. For people wanting to go to and from their yachts during normal working hours the fee is £3 per person each way. It is advisable to contact Stacey a day in advance to ensure she will be available to take you to your yacht and bring you ashore as she has many other activities in the diary.  During peak season the ferry service is restricted due to the high demand for boat trips so please call in advance to make sure Stacey can accommodate your request. Requests for a water taxi outside of normal hours can also be accommodated with prior notice given and a fee will be negotiated depending on the times required and notice given.
