We had a day trip with Kevin on the Picnic Boat with our two children (7 and 9). We parked just opposite where the boat was moored and so very easy. Kevin is a cheerful and charming host. We had a leisurely trip up and down the river, with some 'crabbing' at Dittisham. The highlight has to be the picnic... More

We had a perfect afternoon tea on the picnic boat. Kevin wes a perfect host. The scones were lovely with plenty of clotted cream and jam. The weather was perfect, but I expect even in the rain this trip would be special.

This is our second visit to Dartmouth on the picnic boat. As usual we were not disappointed, we visited this time with friends for my wifes birthday. The trip was extended for a further hour which you can purchase in advance if Kevin has the space. This gave us the opportunity to run the length of the dart from Dittisham... More

We visit Dartmouth regularly and had spotted the picnic boat on a number of occasions. We were delighted therefore when we received a trip as a gift. We had the "Romantic Lunch for 2" complete with dressed crab and a decent bottle of champagne. The trip did not disappoint. There is no better way to experience the river Dart than... More

My sister very generously organised the picnic boat with the seafood fayre for her pre-wedding weekend and I have to say it is an experience I will never forget and will find difficult to surpass. Aside from the fact we were celebrating such a beautiful occasion, I escaped for 2.5 hours of sheer magic. How our fabulous skipper managed to... More

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.

We treated two friends to the seafood picnic for their hospitality. Despite the weather not being its best it was a fabulous trip. 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...
