Thank you for your review. We love our seasonal cruises. Our firework cruise sold out very quickly this year & our Sail with Santa is so popular with over 1,000 children now joining the fun on board each year.

Thank you for reviewing our River Exe Cruise. We are so lucky to be able to run our trips throughout the autumn/winter months due to the calm, sheltered waters of the River Exe. We also have heated saloon decks so no need to feel cold.

We had a great trip out today. Boat is spacey and well equipped. The tour was informative but not too much. Staff were friendly. Refreshments were very reasonable- remember to bring cash to though!
