Regular Option - Maltsters Arms to Ferry Boat Inn and back

Devon's best two pubs by canoe!  We meet at the excellent Maltsters Arms, Tuckenhay (get here early if you want a pre-adventure drink!).  We paddle to the Ferry Boat Inn (FBI) where you have the option for dinner.  It is the amazing location, view and ambience of a tiny, traditional, rural pub that makes the 'FBI' famous and it serves good honest pub fare as well.   There is plenty of room on the shore if you want to bring your own picnic and just use the pub for drinks. 

We stop at a secret place on the shore on the way home to build a fire and enjoy a brew, marshmallows and quality company.  Our final paddle home is guided by the moonlight.  We are usually back at the Maltsters Arms in time for last orders, but not always! 

This is a longer, later trip than our usuals. Young ones are welcome so long as they can handle the late hours. We often need all paddlers on deck for the final leg home. 

  • Family tickets not eligible on these adventures - sorry.
  • Please ask if you would like to do this adventure as a private boat booking.  It makes for an excellent team building event, or a unique way to spend some quality time with your friends. 

Easier Option (and slightly finer dining) - Stoke Gabriel to Maltsters Arms and back

For private groups looking for a slightly easier option (with slightly finer dining), ask for our Stoke Gabriel departures. Here you can get started at the licensed River Shack, before meeting your canoe in Stoke Mill Creek and paddling to the excellent Maltsters Arms, Tuckenhay for dinner (fish is their thing, but not exclusively). Usually (but not always!), we have the westerly breeze to help us home.
