Since 1968, Stuart Line Cruises has been listed as one of the top family attractions in Devon and is widely recognised as the best tourist attraction in Exmouth! 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 live band nights and party cruises, making us known as one of the most popular event venues in Devon.
