About

PLEASE READ ALL THE INFORMATION BEFORE BOOKING

The Exe Estuary is a special place and is internationally protected for wildlife, including the thousands of birds that flock here in the autumn and winter. Come and enjoy our popular RSPB birdwatching cruises along the stunning Exe Estuary in Devon.

Throughout the cruise, expert commentary is provided by knowledgeable RSPB volunteers who will keep a close eye out and help you spot the various species of waders and wildfowl that either flock to the Exe to overwinter or call the Exe their home.

The avocets have never failed to put on a show since our Avocet Cruises started in the late 1980s. They normally congregate between the Turf Inn and Topsham. Because the estuary narrows here, you can get incredibly close to these wonderful two-tone birds, which are the unmistakeable emblem of the RSPB. Black-tailed godwits are another spectacle on the Exe - these elegant visitors from Iceland are usually seen in a flock. There's just something about these birds that brightens up a day.

Cruises are tide dependent, so the boat can't wait for late arrivals. These cruises are renowned for the variety of birds you'll get close-up views of - including the stylish avocets.

Our cruises last approx. 1.5 hours and the money from these cruises is directly helping to save nature on the Exe and in the South West- Thank you for helping to give nature a home.
