We used the boat to get everyone from the registry office in Exeter over to the Double Locks for the wedding reception. It was a beautiful day and the 20 minute trip along the canal was very enjoyable. The crew were friendly and helpful and it made a lovely change from limos and classic cars

Whilst staying in the area,we took a canal cruise from the Quayside of Exeter to the Double locks.And saw a lot of wild life and sea birds,and stopped in one of the turf pubs for a nice pint of local ale. Highly recommend.

Delightful friendly skipper and crew took 23 of us on an early evening trip down to the Double Locks ( for a few drinks and something to eat) returning later to the Quay. They skilfully handled the more willful party members and set a great tone for the evening right from the start. The boat was decorated as well for... More

Jumped on the cruise boat when it came into dock at the quay and enjoyed the trip. Wacthing the guy jumping around to open and close the lock gates was interesting and they either drop you off along at a nice pub and grab a later boat or you can stay on for the return journey. I chose to walk... More

This must be one of Exeter's best kept secrets. We caught the boat from Exeter Quay(def worth a visit with lovely pubs, independent shops etc) and took a return trip to the renowned Double Locks Pub. We travelled along a beautiful waterway and were lucky enough to see not only the usual swans ducks etc but also a water snake,... More
