The Port of Dartmouth is located at the mouth of the River Dart on the English Channel. We set sail from Exmouth at 10am on Saturday 31st August. Admittedly, the weather conditions were less than desirable upon leaving Exmouth with a slight rolling swell but once round Berry Head, the skies cleared, seas calmed and it was glorious!
It was a real treat for the Skipper, Jake and his Crew to travel further along the South Devon coastline than usual and once into the mouth of the River Dart, the bustling and vibrant atmosphere both on and off the water was surely evident.
Our passengers spent approximately 3 hours ashore in Dartmouth and upon their return, excitedly described a hive of activity, both on the waterfront and through the multitude of winding cobbled side streets of this charming town.
Our return journey was tranquil with flat calm waters and a dazzling sunset to compliment the ever-changing silhouette of the dramatic South Devon coastline. The chatty atmosphere aboard was truly magical with a wonderful mixture of regular passengers and new faces – there was a real sense that this cruise was an extra special treat.
We are already excited at the thought of running this cruise again next year, details of which will be released on our website, as and when they are revealed by the Dartmouth Harbour Authorities.
