Decided on spur of the moment to do the ferry cruise down the river dart from Dartmouth 1.5 hours cruise return with interesting historical commentary from the Naval college to Agatha Christies accommodation. With 1.5 hours to spend in Dartmouth it was a lovely day and highly recommend to anyone to do the cruise,, Thoroughly enjoyable.
