Slipways

Dartmouth

A public slipway is located in Dartmouth alongside the Higher Car Ferry.  Harbour Dues are payable to the Harbour Office or River Officer.

Please note there is no parking or trailer storage, so this facility can only be used to “slip” and go with the aid of a vehicle driver.  At this time there is no facility to park a trailer in Dartmouth or to leave one at the Dartmouth Park and ride.

There are also private, chargeable launching facilities by arrangement at:-

Other Public Slipway locations

  • Dittisham
  • Greenway Quay
  • Stoke Gabriel
  • Totnes – downstream from Steamer Quay

 Charges

Harbour Dues are payable for vessels using the river either to the Harbour Office or to a River Officer.
