We chartered this boat - with crab and prawn sandwiches which were excellent - and went up river to a local vineyard - watching the wildlife and the sun on the water. It was an idyllic afternoon - for something different we would really recommend Kevin and this experience.

The food was magnificent and we had a lovely relaxing cruise along the dart. Picnic blankets were provided so we kept cosy. We chose the Thursday of Regatta week so there was plenty to see - and...

Thank you Kevin and Elizabeth for making the surprise 70th birthday party for my husband such a success - and for keeping the secret so successfully for over a year! We did wonder if the picnic was actually going to happen, with the weather forecast for the day pretty dreadful as the aftermath of hurricane Bertha swept through. However, the... More

Alongside the various taxis and ferries, there are private boats and vessels for public hire. The river is an intrinsic part of the... More

I couldn't recommend this wonderful day on the river more; from the incredible 360 degree views of the River Dart, to the fabulous local produce we had for lunch, it was a truly magical day out.

Lovely, relaxing trip up the river, with a great lunch included. Kevin, our captain for the day, was a superb host. Highly recommended, will be back, might try the breakfast next time.

What a fantastic experience, have been up the Dart a number of times and below it also! This trip topped the lot, from the moment we were picked up from Dart Marina Kevin was the perfect host, Kevin is a great all rounder, skipper/host/tour guide, was taken back when my wife suggested that he join us for our romantic lunch!!...
