If you want to have a chill out day on your holiday take a trip up river to totnes and back on one of the ferries. The crew are very attentive and give a running commentary throughout. If you want a unique experience travel on the kingswear castle an old fashioned paddle steamer..............but watch your dates, only runs certain days

A fun way to visit Ditisham from Greenway. Even if you don't need to make the trip it's an inexpensive way to enjoy a boat trip on the Dart.
