Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Two ferries and two steam railway trips to Paignton and return to Dartmouth. An excellent half day adventure. Everything was good and easy to find - parking, the ferry kiosk, train ticket office. The journey along the coast to Paignton was wonderful and all the staff were so helpful. At Paignton we watched the refuelling of the locomotive. A great experience - thoroughly recommended

    We diverted miles to jump onto KC, we had several trips when she was on the medway, even having her to ourselves on several times. It was a pleasure to see her on her home river. The trip was really good, went further than I expected and the commentary was really good. It was a bit busy though but it didn't affect our enjoyment and as long as it helps to preserve her

    Brilliant trip along the river Dart, up to Dittisham to see Agatha Christies house & out to the Castles, Dartmouth & Kingswear.
    Louise did a fantastic job of decorating the boat for my partners 50th Birthday & organising the cake, also kept our glasses topped up with fizz the whole time, it all went really well & we had a lovely day, the sun even came out!
    Highly recommend this experience.

    The most amazing afternoon was spent with my best friend celebrating my birthday. The boat was stunning whilst gliding through the calm glistening waters on a perfect sunny afternoon. We were very fortunate to have the boat to ourselves and were very well looked after by Andy who is an amazing host serving up a wonderful feast, Prosecco, and cake! I can’t recommend this enough if you want an ‘escape’. I would have happily kept sailing off into the sunset.

    Taken for a birthday day out. Just the two of us, but they can cater for up to 12.
    Lovely spread, plenty to eat while cruising up the river Dart.
    The crew were friendly and professional and I would thoroughly recommend.

    We have used Dartmouth Boat Hire three times now and each time it gets better!

    The couple that run the business are so friendly and helpful - you start with a proper safety briefing, then they help with life jackets for all the family (and the dog) and then there is a briefing on how the boat works and where to go.

    The boats are small but perfect for the river and ideal for a family and are clean and well maintained. You can use the boats between the Castles and Dittisham and there are literally thousands of boats to see, gorgeous houses to look at and the scenery is delightful.

    You can moor up for a picnic or stop at Dittisham and enjoy the Ferry Boat Inn or the Anchorstone cafe - both are excellent.

    Mandy offered me a great service and lots of information on what was available in Torquay. I was organising a Hen Party for a mixed age group and with Mandy's help we all had the best time!
    I would definitely recommend the Concierge Club, thank you again. Jess

    I booked a taster session for my husband and me at DYC with instructor Phil. We were both very much beginners, but immediately felt at ease with Phil, who is very
    knowledgeable, experienced and friendly. We spent a few hours in total on the beautiful River Dart learning basic kayaking skills and making our way along the river towards Dartmouth Castle and back again. It's a fabulous way to see the hidden creeks and coves and to look back to Dartmouth and Kingswear and get a different perspective, if you are lucky you might spot some wildlife too.
    The Yacht Club provided the equipement and they have changing and shower facilities, as well as a bar and restaurant you can make use of.
    Both of us would highly recommend this experience, we had such fun and will definately be kayaking again.
    Thank you Phil for making it a safe, fun and interesting session. Rachel and Mark

    We had a great Christmas Day lunch. Home cooked far and really good at a reasonable price. Good wines included. Just the right amount of food, good company and no music at all. I love music but not as a blaring background to good.

    We went on the Henry Finlay in August. Alister and son Callum added the personal touch that made such a difference to the trip. We've been on other riverboats from Dartmouth before and were impressed with the amount of space available (they have limited the numbers to 12) and the ability to chat with the crew about anything and everything. Add to this the Henry Finlay itself: at 101 years old this ex-RNLI open lifeboat is a fantastic reminder of what heroes the old lifeboatmen were and is in beautiful condition. After hearing the history of the boat we were more than happy to make a donation on board to the modern RNLI. Greatly recommended.
