Overview

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!

Took the Jurassic Coast trip. Very informative and the boat allowed us very close to sandstone cliffs to photo nesting birds. On the return trip we went inside rock stacks almost to the shore to give an unmissable experience.
