Thank you Jennifer for reviewing your River Exe cruise. We have been so lucky this year with the weather which enhances the scenery on the river. Next time you'll have to experience our Jurassic Coast cruise for fantastic view along the World Heritage Site coastline

Ex wife lien value for money. Lovely cruise weather good. Crew good with good commentary inter-dispersed with a few jokes and anecdotes as we cruised up and down the River Exe and Exmouth seafront.

Thank you for your review & recommendation. We try to cater for all ages on our trips & younger children do enjoy our River Exe Cruises or Mini Coastal Cruises as they are just the right length of time.

As usual Stuart line cruises more than exceeded expectations Spotless ship with friendly and helpful crew and you can talk to the skipper as he navigates the winding canal travelling up from Topsham to Exeter basin

I can't believe that I have lived in Exmouth for 30 years and haven't done this before. We had a great 2 hours and learnt something too. I would recommend it.

I would not suggest the return journey with children. We loved it but my reply is based on a child’s attention span. Hope this helps.
