Waverley Excursions

Bristol Channel

Waverley’s sailings in 2017  

Waverley’s 2016 season has now finished. Thank you to everyone who travelled aboard the world’s last sea going paddle steamer this year. We look forward to seeing you in 2017. Register now to receive a timetable.

Discover the Coasts, Rivers & Islands of the Bristol Channel on a Magical Day, Afternoon or Evening Cruise. Pleasure Steamers have cruised on the Bristol Channel since Victorian days and Waverley carries on this great tradition. Bring back memories as you visit the seaside in Ilfracombe in Glorious Devon. View sealife along the spectacular National Trust coastline of Exmoor or explore enchanting Lundy Island with its magnificent views and wildlife. Enjoy a cream tea or somerset cider when you visit charming Minehead or take a trip on the West Somerset steam railway. Get close up views of seabirds, towering cliffs and a Lighthouse as you enjoy a peaceful cruise around the ‘Channel Islands’ of Steep Holm & Flat Holm. Have fun on a showboat and enjoy the live band onboard.

Dine, relax with a drink in one of our restored period lounges, or simply watch the world slip by as you enjoy breath taking views. You can send a postcard or shop for a souvenir whilst on-board.

Visit new places or simply bring friends and family – young and old – for a trip to remember! There is something to suit every taste and pocket.
