EXETER CANAL CRUISE

OVER 50 YEARS OF AWARD-WINNING BOAT TRIPS

Since 1968, Stuart Line Cruises has been listed as one of the “top family attractions in Devon”! With boat trips sailing the coast around Exeter, Exmouth, Torquay and Sidmouth, we give hundreds of thousands of happy passengers the chance to see the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, cruise the beautiful River Exe or visit a picture-postcard South Devon town. Stuart Line Cruises has remained a family business with two boats operating year-round in our distinctive bright colours. We are a daily fixture on the water and have literally become part of the stunning scenery that we are blessed with.

We are an all weather, family-friendly, dog-friendly, value for money experience with boat trips accessible for wheelchair users. Bookings can be made for large groups, small groups and all those in between!

The Company has grown and evolved so much over the years and we now not only offers pleasure cruises and family fun days out, but also high-speed adrenaline thrills and party cruises, making us known as one of the most popular event venues in Devon.

Ideal day-trips!

Located only 15 minutes from Junction-30 off the M5, and in the path of many scenic coastal drives, Exmouth is not only an ideal coffee stop for the longer journey but an ideal day-trip destination! Its seaside charm and small town beauty makes it a popular meeting hub for many people ready to explore the surrounding areas. You can enjoy a full day out with flat and accessible areas like the Promenade and town centre.

An unforgettable British destination that has a country feel alongside its vivacious thirst for watersports, Exmouth’s small size makes it a premier travel spot. And Devon wouldn’t be complete without the Stuart Line Cruises’ boats coasting up and down the English Riviera’s miles of stunning beaches, and an endless list of things to see. Explore our extensive range of boat trips and days out from a number of departure points including Exmouth, Topsham, Sidmouth, Seaton and Exeter. View our timetable for a list of all our trips.

Private Charter

With our floating venue, you will experience all the features of a land-based venue but with the added bonus of the ever-changing, breathtaking scenery of the Devon coastline!
