45 MINUTE RIVER AND HARBOUR CRUISE
All aboard for our most popular trip.
Enjoy the sight of the busy Fowey River and harbour while being given a comentary
by the skipper.
Fowey has a lot of history, a large part of which is mentioned on this trip.
You will be guided up river as far as Wisemans Reach passing Daphine DuMaurier's house, Fowey docks, where the ships load China clay, and the mussel farm before heading downstream past Place House, the blockhouses, Readymoney Cove, the harbour entrance and the village of Polruan.
Feel free to ask the crew any questions and we'll try to give you an answer.
45 minutes of relaxation.
3 hour round trip to Lostwithiel with 1 hour ashore:
This trip is dependant on spring tides, hence that they are only run a few times a month.
You will be taken as far up river as possible in a boat of this size, about eight miles, to the Stannary town of Lostwithiel.
Enjoy an hour ashore to explore the town or one of its many pubs then back afloat for the return journey down river meandering through the reed beds, past St. Winnow, Golant and Bodinnick and the harbour entrance, hopefully seeing plenty of wild life in its natural habitat on the way.
Two and a half hour round trip to the village of Lerryn with one hour ashore.
Again, these trips are governed by the tide and are only run a few times a month.
This cruise will take you up river past the village of Golant to St. Winnow Point were we will turn to starboard and head to the northeast up the Lerryn creek for a mile or so to the village of Lerryn itself.
This creek has been discribed as one of the most picturesque in the county with its woodlands coming down to meet the river.
It is also said that Kenneth Grahame found the inspiration here for "Wind in the Willows".
An hour ashore can be spent sitting on the Green with a cream tea, or maybe a walk through the "wild woods" along the rivers edge, or a pint in The Ship.
(know were I'd be!! Ed.)
This trip will end with a tour of the harbour to enhance what we believe to be our jewel in the crown.
COASTAL AND SEA TRIPS
Two of our boats are licensed to go to sea and visit other ports such as Polperro and Mevagissey. Shorter coastal trips to Polridmouth, Lantic Bay or anywhere in St. Austell bay that may take your fancy can be arranged.
All of our cruises are weather dependent and may be cancelled at short notice.
