Waverley Excursions have released their much anticipated South West, South Coast & Isle of Wight Timetable, with an exciting range of cruises on offer. Newly-announced National Flagship of the Year 2024, PS Waverley, arrives in Cornwall at the end of August and will cruise around the South West and South coast from various ports until the end of September, when the steamer will head up river to London and the Thames. 

The runaway highlight of 2024 will be the meeting of Waverley and Kingswear Castle as the only two operational paddle steamers in the UK paddle together for the FIRST TIME on the river Dart.  The two vessels have met before on the river Medway but never on Kingswear Castle’s home waters on the beautiful river Dart.  This is a sailing not to be missed - Sat 31st Aug. 

Other highlights include: 

• Visiting Fowey for FIRST time - Fri 30th Aug 

• Sailing from Falmouth & Penzance to Land’s End - Thur 29th Aug 

• Evening cruise from Plymouth up the river Tamar as part of the Cattewater 150th Celebrations - Fri 30th Aug 

• Evening Cruise to Start Point & View Dartmouth Royal Regatta Fireworks - Sat 31st Aug 

• First visit to Eastbourne in two decades - Thur 12th Sept 

Waverley will also be offering the ever popular cruise “Round the Island” as well as cruises to the famous Needles Rocks & Lighthouse, and along the Jurassic Coast viewing Lulworth Cove. Once again they are offering combined trips on the Swanage Railway and Isle of Wight Steam Railway for the “ultimate steam day out”.
