on The River Dart

The River Dart rises in Dartmoor and is named for the ancient woodlands you can see on its lower reaches. Active family time can be enjoyed in a country park or you might visit a local manor house.
 
You have a terrific choice of ways of travelling on the river. There's a leisurely cruise all the way up to Totnes. For a quicker river crossing, ferries run from Dartmouth to Kingswear and Dittisham to Greenway.
 
For the more actively minded, whitewater kayaking and canoeing further up the river might be your thing. Guided sea kayaking trips are also available. Outdoor swimming groups organise events on the river. You could hire a small boat or sailing dinghy for a relaxed potter about. Anglers can always find wonderful places to fish.
 
Another option, of course, is to enjoy the famous annual Royal Regatta at the end of August. It was first held almost 200 years ago!
