The best way to see and hear the English Riviera Air Show is by Boat!

Join us as we set sail along South Devon's dramatic coastline to the English Riviera Geopark for what promises to be a spectacular air show!

This is an all-day cruise, departing Exmouth Marina (EX8 1FE)  and we plan to drop anchor in Torbay to watch the air show. This cruise will not land and you will be on the boat for the duration. Our on board fully licensed bar will be available throughout the cruise, serving a wide range of drinks and snacks. You are more than welcome to bring a packed lunch with you if you wish but we politely request that you do not bring drinks of any sort on board.

Avoid the crowds and let us take away the stress of driving, navigating the parking restrictions and allow yourself to simply sit back and enjoy the display!

Trip Description


A wide range of drinks will be available to purchase from the on-board, fully licensed bar throughout the trip. Selling a range of local ales and Exmouth’s very own distilled Copperfrog gin along with a range of refreshments and snacks.

The English Riviera Air Show - previously the Torbay Air Show - is a magnificent flying feast for the eyes.  This is the first show of the RAF’s busy summer season and includes displays from their top line-up including The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and the Eurofighter Typhoon jet.

Since 2016, this free event has been organised by Torbay Council, supported by the Coastal Communities Fund, Torbay Development Agency and a range of local organisations and with support from those who have enjoyed the previous years' events, helping to 'bring the noise' to Torbay again this year.

The air show is always a great day out for families and friends, this show has been increasingly popular since its launch and now attracts well over 165,000 people to Torbay.

Using the natural amphitheatre of the bay, the planes certainly have a major wow factor being driven by a world-class team of pilots.

Please note the specific timings for this cruise are subject to change, in response to the details which may be released by the organisers of the air show in the running up to the event. If the timings do change we will be in contact with you via email only. The cruise is scheduled to depart Exmouth Marina at 11am.

As this is a sea-going cruise, the sea state can be affected by the weather and the winds. If the weather conditions are unsuitable for a pleasant trip, we reserve the right to cancel. In these circumstances, we will offer to transfer you onto another cruise or issue you with a refund.

The flight programme for this event is subject to change and our cruise will go ahead, regardless of changes to the programme. We do not guarantee any specific flight and therefore, refunds will not be issued in the event that your favourite craft is not flying!

This is a fantastic day trip that gives you a perfect perspective of this spine-tingling show – we look forward to welcoming you on board!
