Throughout the world, Father’s Day is celebrated as a way to take a moment to honour and thank the father figures in our lives. Traditionally this day always falls on the third Sunday in June, however, the dates vary greatly throughout with world with Australia celebrating in September and Denmark in November.
Father’s Day is a relatively new celebration in comparison to Mother’s Day only dating back to the early 1900s. There are various versions as to the origins of this day, the most prominent refer to Sonora Smart Dodd. After hearing a Mother’s Day sermon in church, Sonora felt that fathers needed recognition too. She had lost her mother when she was 16 and had been bought up with her 5 other siblings by her father and passionately believed they should be celebrated in the same way mothers are on Mother’s Day.
However, it wasn’t until 1966 that the first presidential declaration was made to assign Father’s Day and then in 1972 President Nixon made the day a national holiday. So why not join us to celebrate everything we love about the Father figure in our lives on our Fathers Day Special Event Cruise!
Sailing along the waters of this stunning stretch of coastline, this circular cruise will depart from Exmouth Marina, travelling the peaceful waters up past Powderham Castle and along to where the river ends on Exmouth’s traditional seafront. Our boats have an outside upper deck with plenty of fresh air and cosy blankets to snuggle under whilst you soak up the scenery. We also have toasty indoor heated lower decks, with huge panoramic windows ideal for viewing all the sights as we cruise past.
The Chunk of Devon pasties have now won over 130 awards and in 2021 the ultimate Steak Pasty won Gold again at the Great Taste Awards. We offer a choice of either the mouth-watering steak or the fully loaded vegetarian pasty – just let us know when you are booking which you would prefer!

Our boats each have a fully licenced bar on board serving a range of local ales and the artisan gin, Copperfrog, distilled in here in Exmouth, alongside a range of hot and cold refreshments and snacks – just in case you fancy a little something extra after your pasty and pint!
