Had a fab boat trip on the river with Stuart line cruises. It took about 90 minutes and was really relaxing.

I have enjoyed going on various ferry trips on the Exe over the years. It is really beautiful and well worth doing. Surprisingly green from the water once past the dock area and all the flats built there, it is very attractive.

I used the ferry service a couple of time. I walked from Exmouth to Babbacombe and used the ferry to get over to Starcross. I also walked to Powderham Castle from Exmouth via Starcross. Only available during the summer season. The fare of £4.50 one way and £5.50 return seems a tad unbalanced to me. Friendly staff.

We enjoyed our rail/boat excursion and then our walk along the riverside path. Interesting on the south side

Ferry man lifts bike onto ferry but it was awkward to get hold of it from him when he handed it back on disembarking which made me lose... More

Transport (water taxi) very well organised and the ride is a must! The restaurant is casual look but with a 360 degres view very comfortable. Ambiance and service very friendly. The menu is mainly fish/shellfish very fresh very good, nice desserts. I had a friend who is vegetarian and I would have like to have one or two more choices... More

There are many ways to explore the Exe, or to use it to get around. We have previously walked up one side from Dawlish Warren up to the Turf Locks pub, and walked down the other side from Topsham to Exmouth. By using the Starcross Ferry we enjoy a round trip, returning by train. There is always something to see... More

Beautiful views on boat trip, past Starcross, Lympstone, well worth the cheap price of 6 pounds for the boat tour from Exmouth, took about 90 minutes, lovely on a clear day
