If you do decide to leave the boat at one of the Marinas - do shop around for price before making your decision - I think Dart Marina is over 30 per night for a 7m rib. Hopefully others would be cheaper but worth checking!

Best place I suppose is the Dartmouth public slip alongside the higher ferry. Parking is the problem, you could get lucky on the embankment of town carpark, or there's the Park & Ride.

An alternative would to be the run up to Dittisham & launch of the beach there. Possiblbe to park on the beach - but watch the tide!

Not really anywhere to launch a SIB on the kingswear side any more that I know of, certainly not with any parking / trailer storage nearby

Thanks LT - same old story as most places in the UK then, never easy to find somewhere to launch. Last time I was there I was only 10 so I cannot really remember the area! Don't have a trailer - we just lift the SIB off the roof and drop in the water - is it private land all along the Kingswear side and further up then?

Hi
I launch my SIB at the end of Ham Lane in Dittisham there is a public car park right at the end of the road and the car park is on the waters edge, I've launched there loads of times it is very quiet and easy place to use
At LW it can be a little muddy but not not much

On the Kingswear side it is railway embankment all the way up to Noss. Parking is a problem as well. I'd either launch from the public slip at Dartmouth or if going down river or Dittisham if pootling up river

Cheers chaps, I'll Google Earth it and have a look.

Any recommendations for SIB suitable stops or places to aim for along/up the river? And how about venturing out to sea from there - anything to be wary of or good places for beach hopping? As I say, a loooong time since I was there?
