There's only the one slip in Dartmouth - the one alongside the Higher Ferry. Fine at all states of tide - just been redone. Parking's the issue. You may need to launch, then go & park at the P&R at the top of hill unless you're lucky.

I have been from Salcombe to Dartmouth more times than I care to remember - It's no problem getting to Dartmouth as you always have the option of turning round and going back - it's the return journey that's the problem as you need to get back! The conditions change quickly and with the tide so a good forecast with a set of tide tables are essential.

Getting around Start Point can be very interesting.... Keeping in close is not always the solution as can also be very rough.

Yachties say to got out 2 miles and its ok, but have had trips when getting out that distance was an issue in my 5.6 m rib. However, pick the right conditions and its a great trip... 2 great boating locations in 1 day!

Enjoy!
