About Us

Stuart Line Cruises is a multi-award-winning, family-run passenger boat company based in Exmouth, East Devon. Sailing for over 50 years, they offer River Exe Cruises on calm and sheltered waters throughout the year, whatever the weather and during the summer months, sailing along East Devon’s Jurassic Coast towards Sidmouth and beyond.

This is England’s only natural UNESCO World Heritage Site and is internationally recognised as one of the most significant heritage sites in the world, for its history and geology. Exmouth is the gateway to the oldest section of this 95-mile coastline, featuring rocks which are believed to be some 250 million years old. The dramatic landscapes, hidden coves and vast rolling green hills of the ever-changing Jurassic Coast are best viewed form the entirely unique and safe perspective of the water and all of this glorious scenery can be enjoyed with the accompaniment of an informative, live commentary from the Skipper, detailing fascinating history, stunning beauty and prolific wildlife, found along the way.

As well as regular sailings, Stuart Line Cruises run a hugely diverse range of special events throughout the year, such as Live Band Nights, Exeter Canal Cruises, Fish & Fizz Evening Cruises and many more. Such events offer unique bookable experiences to holiday-makers and locals alike, enabling people to get a true feel for this area of outstanding natural beauty.

Stuart Line Cruises offer cruises from 1 hour circular cruises to full day trips and welcome families on many of their cruises. They offer exceptionally high-quality experiences at unbeatable value for money and simply cannot wait to welcome you aboard!

Latest OfferS

Stuart Line Cruises’ Lockdown Loyalty Card presents the perfect way for you to treat yourself at this extraordinarily strange and isolating time, during the COVID-19 pandemic.  

*LIMITED OFFER, ENDS 22/05/2020*

This brand new scheme, unique to 2020, offers the opportunity for bookable experiences either on your own or with your friends and family post-lockdown, at a hugely discounted price. Our hope is that this will help to inspire positivity and hope at this difficult time and ultimately, give you something to look forward to with the people you have been missing the most. In addition, your support of this scheme demonstrates invaluable help towards our small, award-winning, family-run business which has now been operating for over 50 years.

The cost of the Lockdown Loyalty Card is £50 and this entitles you to 10 boat trips – that’s 10 spaces, regardless of adult/child passengers. The card offers excellent value for money as the price for 10 cruises would usually be around £100. The card will be valid for one year, from the date that we resume business as usual, post-lockdown. You will receive an email to notify you of this date so please keep an eye out for it.

Simply have a look at our online timetable, give us a call to book your space and present your card to be stamped at the booking office on the day.
