Award-winning family boat trips for over 50 years! The all-weather attraction sailing all-year round on the calm and sheltered waters of the River Exe and along the World Heritage Site Jurassic Coast during the summer months.
All boats have an outdoor upper deck with oodles of fresh air and cosy blankets for great viewing and indoor, heated lower decks with huge windows – perfect whatever the weather has in store! Hot and cold refreshments and snacks are available and there are toilet facilities on board.
There are heaps of cruises and day trips available, River and Mini Coastal Cruises are great for families or there are plenty of longer trips along the Jurassic Coast and South Devon coastline for those wanting more of a day out – there is something for everyone whatever the British weather! Stuart Line Cruises pride themselves on their exceptional levels of customer service and warm and friendly crew, it’s no wonder they have been awarded five years of 5 Star TripAdvisor ratings!
Just 15 minutes off the M5 at Junction 30, these boat trips are easily accessible and offer a beautifully unique perspective of this stunning part of the British coastline.

Embark on an incredible trip with the multi-award winning, family run attraction where everyone is guaranteed a warm and hearty welcome aboard! 

So much of Devon is available by road but what about the stunning scenery and wildlife only visible by boat? Ensure you don’t miss out on one of Devon's top things to do and take a trip with Stuart Line Cruises.

Sailing all year round, you can set sail and explore the rich wildlife and breathtaking views of the River Exe or set sail back 250 million years exploring the Jurassic Coast Line. We even offer day trips out where you can leave the car behind and sail to a local resort such as Torquay or Brixham.

Our boats are spacious, warm and come with all the creature comforts including toilets, bar and panoramic views from both top and bottom decks. There really is no excuse not to discover the history, beauty and wildlife of Devon!
