We begin from Longmarsh, Totnes, where we set off with the outgoing tide. Leaving the town behind us, we join with the peaceful expanse of the Dart Estuary, with its thick wooded banks, and sparkling water. We follow the gentle meandering of the river as it winds towards the sea at Dartmouth, where the fresh meets the salt. We usually stop for lunch at Dittisham or Stoke Gabriel, where you can find great food in the local pub or cafe (see menus below), or if you prefer, a picnic on the beach. It's a great spot for children to go crabbing from the jetty. As the tide turns we'll head back towards Totnes where the trip finishes in the late afternoon/early evening.
We meet at about 9.30am and finish up around 5pm. This may vary slightly depending on the timing of the tides.
This trip can also be done over two days, over-night camping on a river beach... Click here
