So much of Devon is available by road but what about the stunning scenery and wildlife only visible by boat? Ensure you don’t miss out, take a trip with Stuart Line Cruises, Exmouth. Throughout the year you can sail on the River Exe, home to thousands of migrating winter birds and year round residents. During the Summer you can sail the Jurassic Coast Line viewing 250 million years of history or leave the car behind and sail to a local resort such as Torquay or Brixham. There’s no excuse not to discover the history, beauty and wildlife of Devon!

Second year we have done the Birdwatching Trip.A great 3-4 hour sail up and down the river.The on-board expert uses a radio mike to point out the various species in an informative and relaxed manner.Although my knowledge is limited I learnt and saw a lot of fabulous wintering birds with the Avocet being the probable star !! Value for money... More

I took my parents on an early January bird cruise. Equipped with correct windproof / rainproof clothing, this was a great 3 hour round trip to view the visiting birds on the estuary. The gentleman telling us what we could see on both sides of the boat was very knowledgeable, and was helped by everyone to point out different birds.... More

Our group which consisted of 3 children found the cruise to be a bit disappointing. It was a rainy day and could barely see out the window to see anything. The man speaking over the P.A. System was barely audible over the other people all talking so made the trip a tad boring as we couldn't hear anything being said... More

Thank you for your review and apologies that you did not enjoy your trip with us to its fullest. The recent weather certainly gives us a challenge, wet passengers drying out in our lovely enclosed heated deck does create a degree of moisture which naturally targets the windows creating a condensation. Our crew do try their best to keep them... More

We had a lovely time even though it was the end of December the weather was kind and we wrapped up in the blankets they provided and enjoy the mulled wine and mince pies served by... More

We went on the Santa cruise. Didn't know what to expect but it was brilliant. The kids really enjoyed it. From face painting, balloon modelling and seeing Father Christmas. The presents were great, really good quality. The kids loved it. There were offered biscuits and cold drinks. We had hot mince pies and they were lovely. Well done who ever... More
