Attraction details
Owner description: 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!

“A relaxing and informative cruise”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

We really enjoyed the 2hr Jurassic Coast cruise which departs from Exmouth and travels along the coast to Ladram Bay. The staff in the booking office were super friendly, with staff on board informative giving on-board commentary, which wasn't too much and didn't distract from the amazing scenery. It was a beautifully sunny day surprisingly blankets were provided which were needed, especially on the return sailing back as it got a bit chilly. Basic refreshments are available on-board at a really good price. Once in Exmouth follow the brown 'Stuart Line Cruise' signs, there is a car park on the Quay where the boat departs from.

We would highly recommend this attraction to anyone visiting or living in Devon.

“brilliant trip- will be back :)”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

Did the Exmouth cruise. Staff were polite friendsly,helpful and generally lovely. The boat was nice and warm inside on a very windy cold day. There were blankets on deck to sit on,on the benches as they were cold which was a nice touch. The whole boat was very clean indeed ,even the toilets and I would def recommennd to anybody to go on the cruise. very inetresting,but not boring, commentary during the trip-and not so much it got on your nerves. The bar sold sensible price drinks and snacks and little souvenirs from 50p. very realistic prices all round. £1 for a luxury hot drink! GO!

“outstanding cruise options on the Exe”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

Stuart Line Cruises are run by a local family, with outstanding knowledge of the Jurassic Coast, and the Exe Estuary. the winter bird watching cruises are my favourites. the prices of all the cruises are very reasonable, and the on board catering, while limited is excellent value, especially the home-made soup. We have taken 3 bird watching cruises each winter, and they book up very early, but the commentary is excellent, and it is wonderful to get so close to avocets, godwits, ducks and geese that over-winter on the Exe. Winter 2013-2014 will be booking now, so don't wait!
