Some suggestions of places within a day’s cruising range for charter destinations.
The Fal Estuary itself is a fabulous location and is the reason we are based in Falmouth’s Premiere Marina. It offers great cruising in all weathers and all states of tide. Apart from the many creeks that are available (notably the Restronguet Creek and Pandora Inn), we have the Truro River and St Mawes with the Percuil River beyond.
In reasonable weather we can access the Helford and all it’s waters including Frenchmans Creek (Daphne du Maurier) and the beautiful Gillan Creek (Great place to have a BBQ).
In Good weather we can journey along the coast, heading East towards Fowey, passing fabulous beaches such as Portscatho, Caerhays Beach and Castle, Gorran Haven, Portmellon and Mevagissey. The famous harbour at Charlestown, Polkerris and a few beautiful secret locations can all be part of a great adventure by boat.
Reliable Charter Destinations
There are few departure places that can provide a great days cruising at ALL states of tide and in almost ALL weathers (depending how hardy you are!). Even in poor sea states the Fal Estuary is very sheltered and vast enough to provide a great day, with superb anchorages and excellent lunch facilities.
Whilst we cannot guarantee sightings at our charter destinations, it is not uncommon to see dolphins, seals and even basking sharks around the coast. There are also a multitude of marine birds to entertain you and fish if you should take part in snorkelling.
Waterskiing and Wakeboarding are also available on a days charter, so please let us know if you want these activities included at no extra charge.
