Private Hire

We have a wealth of knowledge organising social occasions, from Birthday Celebrations, family get-togethers, wedding receptions and ash scattering.

For the first time, you can now book a private trip online – four times a day for a trip on the River Dart with afternoon drinks and nibbles provided by Liberty in Brixham for groups of up to 12 or in your social bubble.


Enjoy a private cruise for you, your family and friends. Join your friendly skipper aboard our lovely little boat Hercule, for a one and a half hour trip just for you on the beautiful River Dart. We have four private trips available every day at 12noon, 2pm, 4pm and 6pm. This is an ideal trip if you value your privacy or in the current climate want to stay in your bubble of friends and family. Hercule can meet your group to depart from either Dartmouth, Dittisham Pontoon or Greenway Quay near Galmpton in Brixham. It’s really easy to book, with no hidden extra charges – for £240 (just £20 each if there are 12 of you) you get the boat a skipper and a trip on the River Dart for 1.5 hours from your departure time for 12 passengers. If you would like to add drinks of your choice, a celebration cake or even scones and jam, it can all be done to your own specification, making the trip completely individual to you. Hercule has cover, blankets to keep the draft off and is a wonderful way for you to share some quality time privatly with the people you choose. You can bring up to twelve friends, family or collegues – with no extra cost.
