Maritime

We excel at maritime events on the English Riviera. The region has a rich nautical history, and the sea is still a hugely important part of life here. Alongside tales of pirates, smuggling and naval battles, the historic harbours of Torquay, Paignton and Brixham have grown into modern marinas, offering a range of exhilarating watersports, activities and tours for visitors of all ages.

Messing about on the water

Whether you prefer getting wet and wild with all kinds of watersports, surfing, and in-shore or wreck diving, or prefer the more sedate pace of learning to sail, you’ll find everything you need on the English Riviera. For a special boating experience, take the family on a boat trip: you’ll discover wildlife cruises, sightseeing trips along the magnificent Geopark coastline, historical voyages and even mackerel fishing trips.

Under the sea…

Find out more about the sea’s bounty with a selection of Geopark Discovery Packages. ‘Sea to Plate’ and ‘Mussels by Moonlight’ lets you and your family discover how our links with the sea also influence the local cuisine, and what we’re doing to ensure that future maritime harvests are sustainable. The more adventurous can take part in ‘Canoe the Coves’ or the ultimate ‘Thrillseekers’ packages, where the bravest can discover the excitement of coasteering.

With regattas, maritime events, pirate parties and a huge selection of activities both on and off the water, there’s never been a better time to discover the nautical riches of the English Riviera, South Devon’s beautiful bay.
