We really enjoyed hiring a boat on the Dart. The staff were helpful and made sure we knew what we were doing and where we were going. This is a lot of fun – especially heading out to the mouth and getting slapped by the waves from the sea (before turning around, as we were told)!
We hired a boat for a few hours. We had such a great time. Seeing Dartmouth from the water and exploring the river was the highlight of our short break. Our two children (4 & 6) loved the trip. Staff were also very helpful and gave lots of information on what to see and do on the water.
Hired a boat and took a trip up the river to Dittisham the boat worked perfectly and we had a fantastic day out. Friendly knowledgeable staff and reasonable prices for what was an amazing day exploring the beautiful river Dart.
An excellent way to see the river dart and one which I’ve used before. Very helpful people with a good eye to safety.
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.
