Well, strictly speaking it is a hired boat but quite excellent value for money. The craft comfortably holds 6, making the cost of around £5 an hour ludicrously low when compared to other boat trips on this most beautiful of rivers. Next time I’m going for longer and really going to explore this wonderful stretch of water.
The owners and staff and super friendly. They will even take you through the charts (river map) and help you decide where to go. On the trip for 3 hours we had plenty of time to go up river towards Totnes and down to the castle at the estuary mouth. For a family of 4 the boat hiring option is not only more fun but compares well on cost with the big cruises.
