The whole boat trip was very enjoyable. Calm and relaxing. Nice views from the boat, swans and people enjoying canoeing etc. Celebrated part of my 80th birthday on 13th August and had a private booking. Have enjoyed many trips over the years, my grandchildren love it and have an enjoyable time at Double Locks Inn with nice picnic area and play area. Ideal for hen parties etc. Looking forward to end of season trip this weekend.

This is lovely short trip (around 25 minutes) from Exeter Quay to the Double Locks pub on the Exeter Canal. You can stay on for the return trip or get off and get the boat back an hour of two later. Dogs are welcome as well. Friendly staff. Highly recommended.

Exe Canal were amazing! They assisted with cooling our BYO before being boarded and dressing the boat for us with bunting. Very helpful with elderly clients too. Worth a trip to the Double Locks as a singleton or as a group of 50.Easy to book in and out of season. Thank you Guys

Waited for the ferry for an hour, could not walk due to injury, only for the driver to arrive and take down the signs saying he was ‘finishing up for the day’. Very frustrating and a waste of time. Prime time school holidays and was incredibly disappointing, did not apologise at all.

I am local to Exeter and have never taken the little cruise to Double Locks and back. The two lads who took us down the river were absolutely first rate. They looked after my disabled partner and her dog. I recommend anyone to give it a try. You can get off at the Double Locks pub for lunch and then a leisurely trip back to the quay.
