A little tip on a busy day get in the que about 20 mins before your planned departure time to avoid having to wait for the next one. The trip lasts about 30... More

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.

Recommend the Round Robin trip : boat/bus/steam train. This company is very professional and experienced. I have enjoyed cruising with them both as a paying passenger and a cruise ship tour guide.

Had the boat ride today £3 return bargain!! Took about 30 mins to torqay and boat rides were every 15min. Staff were friendly. Boat was very clean and the staff on boat also told you what you could see with some history as well. Well worth a visit

This is a charming trip to take down the estuary from Dartmouth to Greenway. It only takes 30 mins so its a good one to do with small children. We had a lovely time and its certainly the best way to arrive at Greenway, avoiding the challenges of driving around here!

A nice river trip with appropriate commentary it appeared to us the most sensible way to travel from Dartmouth to Agatha Christies former residence & we were proved right. Very pleasant & highly recommended
