Visiting Ships

Each year Dartmouth welcomes hundreds of different pleasure craft and some spectacular superyachts. Our Royal Navy also visit us with a variety of vessels, from patrol craft to Frigates, often to celebrate special events including the Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta held in August each year.

The largest of our visiting ships are the ocean-going passenger liners who call into Dartmouth from time to time for their passengers to visit our beautiful town. We usually arrange a welcoming ceremony for them, often accompanied by the Town Crier. You can see which ships are scheduled to visit, by visiting the Dart Harbour Authority website.
