A large boat carrying up to 100 naked people will be setting sail from Exmouth Docks this summer – and tickets to join in are available. The event, organised by Torbay Sun Club (TSC), will be taking place on August 4 on a large party boat from Stuart Lines Cruises.
Get Ready to Bare All
According to the TSC website, tickets for the nude cruise are available via Ticket Source and cost £22-£24 which includes a welcome drink and a pasty. The clothes-free evening will see around 100 like-minded people dancing, relaxing and catching up with old friends and making new ones. It is one of several events planned this summer. Another sees a Skinny Dip at Topsham Pool near Exeter, all for a good cause, planned for July 29,
The nude cruise will leave Exmouth at around 7 pm before heading up the River Exe to Topsham and back again. A statement on the Ticket Source website reads: “Join us for our eleventh naked boat Trip. As in previous years, “The Pride of Exmouth” (a large party boat from Stuart Lines Cruises) will take us up the River Exe to Topsham and back.”
“The river provides spectacular views of the Exe Estuary and surrounding countryside. The Boat has an undercover area with a fully licensed bar (cash only) and a viewing deck upstairs. Boarding from 6.45 pm sharp at Exmouth Docks and setting sail at 7 pm.”
“This is a hugely popular evening with a welcome drink and a pasty included in the ticket price. Live entertainment from the ever-popular Crystal is now back with us due to public demand. There’s even a raffle! The trip offers terrific company with every chance of blazing sunshine.”
Nude Cruise Welcomes First-Timers!
“Enjoy the evening clothes-free amongst a group of approximately 100 like-minded people some of whom will have been enjoying this lifestyle for years and others who are trying it for the first time. If you are new to naturism, this is a terrific enclosed supportive environment, so please give it a go.”
Back in 2021, one diner at a restaurant in Exmouth shared their surprise upon seeing the nude cruise as it passed him during an evening meal. John Wood, of Seawood Yachts, was enjoying a meal with his wife at the River Exe Cafe which is moored on the Exe Estuary when the cruise ship, operated by the naturist Torbay Sun Club passed by, showing its passengers in all their glory.
He told Devon Live: “My wife and I were having a lovely Anniversary dinner at the River Exe cafe when we caught sight of a boat full of naked people travelling slowly. Reaction in the restaurant was mostly of amusement, and concern for their health as the wind was getting up. Luckily that was the only thing that was!”
