Frequently Asked Questions

What to bring?

Located within the English Riviera which, although enjoys much sunshine, it is not always possible to guarantee the weather !! We suggest you bring a variety of clothing for all possible outcomes. Some suggestions would include jeans/casual trousers, shorts, a lightweight shirt, sun hat, sun glasses, and just in case a warmer sweater and lightweight jacket. For the more adventurous, swim shorts or bikinis.

Of course we will try for sunshine and blue skies! The only thing we insist on is sensible shoes (no black soles).

Sun cream and towels are also a good idea.

Feel free to bring your cameras and Go Pros to record your day afloat….


Soft drinks, tea and coffee and nibbles are all available free throughout the day for Champers charters.

Professional Crew

All of our vessels are run by our professional fully qualified skippers. Crew will be provided for Champers throughout the day.

Boating Itinerary

A typical day would commence at 9.30 hours when guests are met at the marina, escorted to the boat and served with tea/coffee and nibbles. The morning would be spent cruising around some of the many picturesque areas of Torbay and the Western end of the Jurassic Coast, keeping an eye out for dolphins; maybe a couple of hours at anchor to allow for a dip or a spot of water sports, or even an explore of a nearby town such as Dartmouth or Salcombe. For our return trip back enjoy some cold fizz from our onboard prosecco pumps or a cool beer to celebrate the end of a superb day on the water.


You may wish to visit one of the excellent waterside towns for a spot of lunch – Dartmouth, Teignmouth or Salcombe. Alternatively, lunch can be served on board by arrangement.

Additional Facilities

Hoffman Knight Charters have the added benefit of a 6.5m RIB which can be chartered individually or alongside Champers; adding additional excitement to the day. The RIB will bring all the exhilaration that one could wish for, with seating for 6 guests. Water sports, Jet Skis and other activities can also be arranged and tailored to your package.

By arrangement, guests can be collected from other locations nearby and we are also able to specially tailor any day to your specific requirements.
