3 Incredible Dartmouth Boat Trips To Savour


Few towns in the world can boast the same combination of stunning scenery, clear seas and nautical heritage as Dartmouth. No holiday in Dartmouth would be complete without enjoying a boat trip. Taking to the water lets you experience the town from a different perspective and as you venture up the estuary or out to sea you can glimpse an incredible variety of wildlife.

What makes the selection of Dartmouth boat trips on offer so special is the different experiences you can enjoy. From a languid cruise along the river to high octane powerboat rides out on the open sea, there’s a boat trip to suit everybody in Dartmouth, England.

Here are three Dartmouth boat trips to savour during your holiday.

  1. Steam Along The Estuary. If you want to relax and take a step back in time to a bygone age then a trip on the Dartmouth Paddle Steamer is for you. The Kingswear Paddle Steamer offers a couple of different Dartmouth boat trips including trips along the River Dart and all the way to Totnes. You’ll be travelling on the last working coal-fired paddle steamer in the UK, easing along the estuary and up river on this 90 year old vessel. Keep an eye out for grey seals, otters and kingfishers during your trip.
  2.  Race Along The Coast. Dartmouth boat trips aren’t just about lazy days on the estuary. If you want to take things up a notch book a sea safari with Monty Halls Great Escapes. Famed for his TV appearances, Monty and his crew will take you bombing down the rugged coast on a high speed RIB ride where you’ll get to take in all the incredible wildlife that inhabits the coast around Dartmouth. Monty offers a wide range of Dartmouth boat trips, from 90 minute sightseeing to whole day experiences that incorporate snorkelling, fishing and a tasty barbecue to round out the day.
  3. Sail The Seas. Sailing has been an integral part of Dartmouth’s history and is celebrated annually with the Dartmouth Regatta, so any recommendation of Dartmouth boat trips has to include a sailing trip. If you’re an experienced sailor why not hire a boat from Dittisham Boat Hire. They have a range of vessels including Wayfarers and Luggers which can be hired out and enjoyed along the estuary and out to sea.

Indulging in some Dartmouth boat trips, whether you want to take it easy on a paddle steamer or hoist the main sail and take control in a day sailer, should be an integral part of any holiday in Dartmouth.
