Stuart Line Cruises is a multi-award-winning, family-run passenger boat company, operating since 1968 from the traditional seaside town of Exmouth, in Devon. Now running for over 50 years, they are proud members of Devon's Top Attractions and attend regular tourism events, conferences and exhibitions, showcasing Devon as the best destination in the UK. 


As well as offering regular cruises of the calm-assured waters of the River Exe throughout the year, Stuart Line Cruises have become famous for their winter Guided Bird Watching cruises and Day Trips to the English Riviera as well as outstanding circular cruises of East Devon's Jurassic Coast - England's Only Natural UNESCO World Heritage Site. 


In addition, they run Exeter Canal Cruises on select dates throughout the year, landing in the heart of the Cathedral City of Exeter, allowing passengers to explore the historic quayside and soak up its cosmopolitan atmosphere. 


Stuart Line Cruises' vessels are comfortable and modern, offering an open-top deck with blankets and a covered and heated saloon on the lower deck, making them an all-weather attraction. They work closely with fellow members of Devon's Top Attractions, offering joint tickets at excellent value.
