Guided Bird Watching in Devon
More information

View thousands of migratory birds on the Exe Estuary from the comfort of our heated and modern vessels!

The River Exe is a RAMSAR Site of Special Scientific Interest, internationally recognised for its prolific migratory bird life during winter. Stuart Line Cruises are delighted to offer award-winning wildlife cruises during this time and whether you consider yourself a novice or an expert, leading local ornithologists will guide you with an informative live commentary.

Our Guided Bird Watching Cruises are ideal for anyone who would like to see the many thousands of birds that migrate to the area during the autumn and winter months.

Suitable for beginners and beneficial to experts these cruises have a full commentary throughout from ornithologists Dave Smallshire and Derek Carter. You will discover and learn all about the species, habitat and behaviours of the thousands of birds on the Exe Estuary and East Devon Coast.

We of course will be continuing to serve the award-winning Chunk of Devon pasties on board, both steak and vegetarian/vegan options are available. Make sure to pre-order the pasties in advance prior to the cruise as they will not be available to purchase on the day and we wouldn’t want you to miss out! Alongside the pasties we will be serving hot and super tasty soup, and this can be purchased on the day depending on availability.

On board we have a fully stocked licensed cash bar serving a range of local ales and gin, alongside a range of hot and cold refreshments and snacks.
