Take a boat Ride

Falmouth is arguably the best place in Cornwall to climb aboard a boat, with numerous operators running to a wide choice of destinations. A boat ride is the best way to explore the River Fal, with all its picturesque twists and turns.

The Helford River

Just a few miles’ drive from Falmouth is the scenic Helford River. This estuary reaches from the edge of Falmouth Bay to the old trading port of Gweek, five miles inland. Towards the sea are sheltered beaches such as Polgwidden, Porth Saxon and Helford Passage.
