This is a charming trip to take down the estuary from Dartmouth to Greenway. It only takes 30 mins so its a good one to do with small children. We had a lovely time and its certainly the best way to arrive at Greenway, avoiding the challenges of driving around here!

We bought tickets for the 1 hour cruise just £5 each from the ticket stand opposite lloyds bank in Dartmouth. It was great, clean and comfortable boat, good commentary. The competitors were quite keen to sell the same trip at £8.50 per head and their trip looked pretty chaotic so glad we chose this one. Would recommend!

Informative commentary from the captain. It's all good. They even... More

Thank you for your review, should you not be writing this fr your hotel as they gave you misinformation. Firstly, you bought a return ticket for the Steam Train to Greenway, decided that it was to far to walk back and came down the Quay to catch the ferry back to Dartmouth - on the 'off chance'. You had none... More
