There are many car parks within walking distance of the harbour pier from where our boat may be boarded.

The nearest rail stations are at Totnes (Network Rail) where a bus service to Dartmouth operates every hour, or Kingswear (Heritage Line Steam Train) where a Water Taxi service will take you across the river to Dartmouth.

The closest airport is at Exeter with daily International Flights.

Wesley boats

The Samuel Wesley, a Mersey-Class vessel built in 1990 for the RNLI, is a perfect example of the way lifeboats see most aspects of human life, from beginning to end – as well as most of the events in between!

Originally named the Lincolnshire Poacher, she had an active service life stationed in Skegness, Anstruther & Rhyl before being retired in 2020.  She is the first of our fleet which are all connected by the Wesley nomenclature. 

Mersey-class lifeboats are versatile all-weather vessels still operated by the RNLI along the coasts of Great Britain and Ireland. Our boats have been specially adapted to comfortably accommodate up to ten guests & two crew led by a very experienced ex-RNLI Coxswain.
