What a great way to explore the river Dart. Kevin our host provided a superb lunch with local fish and cheeses. The wine list gives a good variety of choice and is good value. Our party consisted of 6 people so we had a lot of space to move around. I would recommend this trip to anyone.

My husband and I treated my Dad and the family to an unforgettable trip on the Picnic Boat in Dartmouth in May 2013. The beautiful weather helped make it an absolutely memorable experience, as did Kevin's perfect hosting skills - he was happy to divulge local information but also just as happy to leave us to get on with enjoying...

My family had booked this as a surprise party for my birthday while we were on holiday in Kingswear. The trip had been booked for the Monday when the storm was due. Kevin cancelled this and rearranged it for Wednesday. It was a lovely sunny day. The food was excellent. The homemade bread was lovely. We had salmon, chicken and... More

Well what a way to spend a couple of hours. A small family reuion, two birthdays which included a 50th. The picnic boat takes 12 which was just right for our party. Unsure of numbers on the day we opted to take our own picnic and have Kevin supply the drinks. If you do want something that is not on... More

Kevin picked us up at Dart Marina. My wife had booked a trip for the family for my Birthday and didn't tell anyone. I was shocked, surprised and thoroughly pleased to get a trip on the water and Kevin made the trip an excellent experience for us all. We were greeted with Champagne and nibbles which the kids decimated (not... More

My wife booked this experience for our 27th anniversary and it didn't disappoint. Kevin was a really friendly guy and made feel very welcome aboard his boat. The lobsters (you get 1 each!) were superb and washed down with a very quaffable bottle of fizz, made the picnic a real treat. The timing of the trip to coincide with finishing... More

We were picked up from the Dart Marina hotel by Kevin who showed us on board in the sunshine. We had a lovely trip up river before the heavens opened up and the covers came down. We had a fabulous time in spite of the ensuing thunderstorm - the food was lovely, the boat dry and warm and Kevin was... More

We were so disappointed as we made our way along the coast towards Dartmouth for our Picnic Boat trip - the weather was shocking and visibility was poor. However despite this and the rain which followed we thoroughly enjoyed our Seafood Heaven romantic cruise. We were warmly welcomed by Kevin and had a great time touring up and down the... More

Lovely trip for 4 of us on the Dart on a beautiful day. The West country picnic was so good, including the homemade bread. We had booked for the previous day which was dull and showery. Kevin rang to suggest we swap to the next day when the forecast suggested warmer, sunnier weather. How thoughtful! Great experience. I expect we'll... More
