Welcome aboard Plymouth Boat Trips, the South West’s premier cruising company.

Explore local history and heritage, whilst soaking up the sights aboard our one hour Harbour Cruise. Take your time, sit back and relax on one of our longer half day trips to Calstock and Cotehele Quay, as we journey along the River Tamar, flanked by the stunning Devon and Cornish coasts. Or join us on one of our beautiful scenic tours to the River Yealm, River Lynher or out to the historic Breakwater.

Our fleet of cruise boats, ferries and fishing boats are all available for private charter. From birthdays, weddings and family celebrations to inspirational corporate events, our floating venues provide the wow factor for your special occasion.

Located on the Barbican, where our boats depart, the Plymouth Boat Trips booking office and The Boathouse Cafe next door, provide the perfect place to meet before you set sail……

Fulfilling another dream, to serve the fresh sustainable fish that he loves to catch, Ben opened The Boathouse, situated on the quay where the boats depart. Passengers on our fishing trips can now enjoy their catch, cooked straight off the boat – it doesn’t get fresher! Ben’s fish and shellfish boat, The Barbican Rose, also supplies fresh fish, crab and lobster straight to The Boathouse, which is served up daily.

With our fantastic team of booking staff, skippers and deckhands, we pride ourselves on delivering the best customer experience to all those sailing with us.

We hope to welcome you onboard soon!
