The Dartmouth Steam Railway and River Boat Company has just published the 2017 timetable for the Society's coal-fired river paddler, Kingswear Castle.
The season runs from 27 May to 30 September 2017. The timetable follows the same pattern as in 2016 with the main almost daily offering being 75 minute circular cruises from Dartmouth at 12.00, 14.00 and 15.30 on most days. On 3 selected dates in each of June, July, August and September, the steamer offers a return cruise from Dartmouth to Totnes, taking 90 minutes each way, and a circular cruise either before or after dependant on the tides. During the Dartmouth Royal Regatta, 24 to 26 August, four 50 minute cruises are offered at 11.30, 12.30, 13.30 and 14.30. Please note that, except in August, there are no sailings on Fridays.
This calendar gives the sailings for each day:
