Set Sail this Christmas with Stuart Line Cruises
and create Christmas memories to last a lifetime.


Winter boat trips with Stuart Line Cruises are inviting and weatherproof, with covered and heated lower decks, a well-stocked bar which serves a range of alcoholic, soft, hot and cold drinks, as well as a wide range of snacks. Large panoramic windows ensure excellent viewing from the lower decks and friendly Crew will ensure that you enjoy an experience to remember.

During winter, our boat trips remain in the calm and sheltered waters of the River Exe; the water in the River Exe does not get rough, whatever the weather and boat trips with us are therefore entirely weatherproof.

So, whether you are organising your office Christmas party, your Dad's birthday bash or you would like to discover Britain's wildlife, we have got you covered (and heated)!


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 live band nights and party cruises, making us known as one of the most popular event venues in Devon.
