Christmas in Devon

We have always been immensely proud to offer one of the most popular Santa experiences in Devon and this year is no exception – in fact, I think it could be argued that 2022 has so far, been our best year yet!

The administration, organisation and all-round preparation required in order to pull off our famously spectacular Santa experience in Devon is quite honestly, enormous. It really is a team effort, from processing bookings (which start as early as January) in our bustling Booking Office, to making our famously delicious homemade mulled wine, purchasing and wrapping gifts, to getting our boat beautifully decorated, creating a magical Santa’s grotto and of course running the actual cruises on the day! This year we have improved many of the processes involved in Sail with Santa and we are so delighted to report that it has, so far, been a huge success thanks to our amazing team!

Happily, everyone’s hard work has been more than worth it, with some truly incredible feedback from very happy passengers and several people asking when they can book Sail with Santa 2023, as they disembarked!

Punch and Judy has once again been an incredibly popular feature of the cruises and it is so lovely to see almost every child on each of the cruises, just so totally mesmerised by the traditional seaside show.

Other entertainment features include Face Painting, Balloon Modelling and of course the sensational scenery which surrounds the River Exe.

So, if you are already starting to think of ideas for where to see Santa in Devon next year, or perhaps a festive family day out, then I think we may have just the thing for you!

Bookings for December 2023 will appear on our website under ‘Sail with Santa’ in early 2023 but you will need to be quick, this cruise sells out FAST and spaces are very limited!
