Ultimate Taste of Devon Boat Trip Dartmouth


The Ultimate Taste of Devon is precisely that - a chance to experience the sea and the river, the coast and the estuary, the wildlife, the walking paths, and - best of all - local produce from Devon farms, fishing boats & bakery.

Starting at the harbour side in Dartmouth, the first part of the tour is by boat, out of the river mouth and into the open sea, or up the river if the sea is too rough. We visit the local marine and estaurine wildlife and explore the local area.

We then land you in a quiet cove in the company of a marine biologist. Following a shore walk, exploring rock pools and the strand line, you’ll enjoy a feast of local Devon food. Lunch is a hamper of local crab, freshly baked bread, cheese from nearby dairy farms, salad from local growers, locally made drinks, and a home made cream tea to finish off. (Hot picnics available in the colder months).

The afternoon concludes with a walk home along the famous South West coast path back to Dartmouth in the company of your guide who will tell you all about the history and wildlife of the path.

(£70pp with Monty. If the sea is too rough we'll base the trip in the river and estuary. Feet may get wet when exiting the boat onto the beach. Dogs welcome)
