The Bramble Bush Bay
The Sandbanks to Studland chain ferry is operated by The Bournemouth-Swanage Motor Road and Ferry Company which came into being in July 1923. This is the fourth ferry to be operated and the first to be named. The Bramble Bush Bay came into service in January 1994 and it is named after a small bay, located close to the Shell Bay side of the crossing. It has a nominal capacity of 48 cars.

The ferry which undergoes a refit every two years runs daily from 7am until 11pm. The vessel is manned 24 hours a day (for cleaning and repairs), 365 days a year.
