Trip Itinerary – Everything you need to know.

 

Your adventure begins at Brixham Harbour…

Begin your adventure from Brixham Harbour. The boat will sail at 10:30am. Meet at the kiosk at least 20 minutes before sailing time to collect your boat ticket.

The coastal cruise to Teignmouth takes just over a couple of hours, and we call at Paignton Harbour at 11am and Torquay Harbour at 11:30am to collect other passengers.

Cruise to Teignmouth – Relax.

The cruise to Teignmouth takes us up close and personal to most of the natural sights and wonders on the English Riviera Coast.  

We sail up and out of the Northern side of Torbay into Teignmouth bay, and along the way we pass Hopes Nose, Thatcher Rock & The Orestone – home to many native sea bird species.

The skipper will point out spots and places of interest before we soon arrive into the Teignmouth Estuary – into Teignmouth, known locally as the “Gem of the Southwest”. You’ll be hopping off at around 12:45pm.

Explore Teignmouth – “The Gem of the Southwest”…

‘Photo: Your crew will drop you off at the Teignmouth Town Pontoon (opposite the New Quay Inn) – They’ll see you later!’

Your Town Map will open your eyes up to the huge array of places to see and things to do in Teignmouth. There is a number of independant shops, quaint restaurants and traditional pubs to fill your time… (And of course – the new Wetherspoons!)

We recommend having lunch here before you make your way to Teignmouth Railway Station – where the second part of your journey begins. From where the crew drop you off in Teignmouth to the station is a flat walk (about 10 minutes), via the Town.

Take the Great Western Railway to Paignton Railway Station…

When you’re ready, head to Teignmouth Railway Station to catch any Great Western Railway service from Teignmouth to Paignton (end of the line). You’ll love the sea & river views of the scenic Riviera Line  and after about 25 minutes – you’ll arrive at Paignton Railway Station. 

Please note: In order to make your final connection back to Brixham Harbour you need to catch the 3:30 (approx) train at the latest! The crew will announce the exact train time on board – as this varies a few minutes from time to time.

Hardcore explorer?

Not in a rush? Optionally, you can travel by train from Teignmouth even further to Dawlish or Dawlish Warren for no extra cost – before coming back down the line to Paignton.

This may mean you will need to find your own way back from Paignton to Brixham later in the day, as our boat connection sails at 4:45pm.

Rejoin the Brixham Belle at Paignton Harbour…

You’ll have around 45 minutes in Paignton to stroll to the Harbour (unless you leave Teignmouth early which you are more than welcome to do). It’s only a 10 minute flat wak from the Railway Station; so no need to rush!

Rejoin the boat at 4:45pm at Paignton Harbour, where the crew will welcome you back aboard for the last hop back to Brixham Harbour

This time we sail past Elberry & Goodrington beaches, Brixham’s Mussel Farm and Fishcombe Cove before arriving back into Brixham at around 5:30 pm. Perfect.

What other people say…

  We thoroughly enjoyed our trip on the Brixham Belle. It was so interesting being near to the coast line and seeing the rock formations. The crew were very knowable and friendly and you could tell were passionate about the sea.

  John and Ross were so helpful and made sure we had a brilliant boat trip. They accommodated a large group of us at very short notice. The water was calm and being in the small boat allowed us to get very close to the shoreline...More
