The river Dart is a wonderful river, rising on Dartmoor and running to the sea at Dartmouth. The name originates from the meaning " the water where the oak trees grow" from the word 'Darant'

The navigatable length is from Dartmouth to Totnes with plenty of twists and turns but also large stretches of open water to allow sailing when the sea is a little unfriendly.
Galmpton Creek sits off the Flat Owers almost opposite to Dittisham Village but road access is from the Torbay side via the A3022 from the Ring Road to Brixham.

Agatha Christies Greenway House is just round the corner and our moorings are half way between Dartmouth and Totnes away from the main stream so you can be assured of some peace and quiet.

Watch the sunset over the creek, catch a glimpse of the Kingfishers, Little Egrets, Grey Herons, Canada Geese, Redshanks and Black Headed Gulls addition to the two Eygyption Geese that have taken up residence.
The village of Galmpton is just up the road for provisions at the Village Stores & Post Office or a drink or two and choose a home cooked meal from the varied menu offered at the Manor Inn.

If you want a little more action - then Dartmouth is just a half hour away down river and Totnes is an hour away up river.

Dolphin Haven Boatyard is situated on the beautiful river Dart - mid way between
Dartmouth and Totnes
