Taking to the water is a must when visiting South Devon's beautiful bay Torquay, Paignton and Brixham, and alternatively to the South Hams picturesque port of Dartmouth or quaint town of Totnes. Why not do it in style aboard the largest ship sailing in the area, the WW2 heritage ship 'Fairmile'.
Whether taking the ferry between Torquay or Brixham (regular service Good Friday - October), jumping aboard the family friendly Sea-fari Wildlife Cruise in search of dolphins, seals and various sea birds or of course visiting the home of the late Dame Agatha Christie at Greenway on a hill towering over the beautiful and serene River Dart by 1940's ship or vintage bus - services to Greenway are available from Totnes, Dittisham and Dartmouth as frequent as every hour, Torquay and Brixham offer one service per day (during the summer season).
If that wasn't enough why not have a go at fishing aboard one of our lucky catch boats, keep your catch and pop it on the barbecue (Summer season). Finally between Good Friday and the end of October, a visit to the English Riviera wouldn't be the same without a cruise to Dartmouth our South Hams neighbour, the famous ancient naval riverside town - and what better way than by ship, landing you there for a few hours prior to returning. Departing from Dartmouth at 2pm - History buffs will delight in taking part aboard the WW2 Grand Heritage Voyage or Premier Gold Cruise launched by HRH The Princess Royal which in addition to landing in Dartmouth (for those whom have joined from Torquay and Brixham) extends your trip for an afternoon sail to Slapton Sands, Torcross and Blackpool Sands where Exercise Tiger took place - the full scale rehearsal for the D'Day landings. Greenway Ferry and Pleasure Cruises offer a wide range of family boat trips which start in the English Riviera ports of Torquay (Princess Pier) and Brixham or the South Hams ports of Dartmouth, Totnes, Dittisham and Greenway. With eleven vessels to choose from and being a Visit England award winning Quality Visitor Attraction and a member of Devon and the English Riviera Top Attractions you can relax in the knowledge that you will have a truly memorable experience for all the right reasons.
Please note the above information details boat trips which run between Good Friday and the end of October.
