Today’s cruise was simply brilliant!  The weather forecast seemed to put some people off coming, but apart from a bit of light drizzle, everything was fine. So often the weather is much better in the estuary than in surrounding areas: please don’t be put off by a bad forecast! That said, wind surfers were taking

Can you spot what’s missing?

Unfortunately after several successful years in Mamhead Gardens our booking office is now gone. We have thoroughly enjoyed being located in such a prominent position allowing us to meet and greet our passengers professionally.  During the summer months we have been surrounded by flowers and throughout the year we have gladly answered questions on everything

Some elfish behaviour!

There is only 20 days to go until the first of our Sail With Santa Cruises leaves the docks.  With this in mind we’ve been sent a couple of Santa’s Elves to ensure we have the age and gender of all the boys and girls coming to see us and start wrapping the 1500 presents

Sunday 8th November 2015 – our first cruise of the season

It was good to be back for the first bird watching cruise of the winter. Although breezy with drizzle at first, it proved to be a good one. In the estuary mouth, just off the seaward side of Dawlish Warren, was a female or immature Long-tailed Duck – let’s hope it stays for the winter!

This week we had the first of our Cream Tea Cruises and our second Ploughman’s Lunch Cruise of the year!   Both of these cruises have proved to be extremely popular with groups this year, with over 10 planned so far of each cruise there is no reason to miss out on joining us!
