Arrive by boat
It is very easy to travel up Bow Creek, a tributary of the River Dart, by boat. Be sure to pay attention to the tides as Bow Creek dries out from the pub quay to the entrance of the River Dart. We have a pontoon that rises and falls with the tide. This is perfect for smaller sailing boats, dinghies and tenders.
For larger boats there are recently installed mooring piles, a planking system, electrical hook-up and water.
We also have showers for those that need to freshen up before dining.
It is possible to dry out overnight and we ask for a £5 donation to the RNLI.
There’s about two and a half hours either side of high tide if you draw up to a metre. This is based on a 4.6 metre tide. The channel at Bow Creek is clearly marked with buoys. Adjust accordingly for larger or smaller high tides.
It is important you check the tides before making you way here and we take no responsibility for any explorers that get stuck, however we are always more than happy to help, so if you have any questions please call.
