About Stuart Line Cruises
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!

Thank you Shyboy for your review of our River Exe Cruise. It is a lovely relaxing way to spend a Sunday afternoon, but even better with a tasty Devon Cream Tea.

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!

I would not suggest the return journey with children. We loved it but my reply is based on a child’s attention span. Hope this helps.
