Great River Cruise around Falmouth

Excellent trip on the MV Princessa - great value for money and great commentary from the skipper. We really had a good time on the boat!

Very good value and friendly staff. We also were very lucky to see a pod of dolphins.The commentary is very informative and coupled with beautiful scenary makes it an enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours.

Booked the trip today on the Princessa. The trip was very good, interesting, knowledgeable commentary, humour and great staff. The trip was so relaxing, the scenery was incredible. If you have never done one, this is a must for your stay. There was so much to see, and I learnt loads. Definitely worth the cost. Also very comforting to know... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our river cruise, a very professional company. Nice bar, and interesting (maybe comical due to strong Cornish accent) commentary as we went. We enjoyed every minute, and even managed to spot some Dolphins. Beautiful scenery and never felt rushed at all during the trip. Staff were great and cheerful throughout. Will definitely visit again! Suggestion: why not... More

Enjoyed our 2 hrs cruise on a very sunny day last week. Saw lots of interesting sights inc 54 jellyfish and a variety of birds! Was very good value for money and would definitely recommend it.

To my mind, this is the best boat trip out of Falmouth. It lasts for over two hours and is very good value for money (pick up a Princessa leaflet at their Prince of Wales kiosk for a £2 discount per person). The views are terrific and there is a good commentary on all the landmarks up to and including... More

Wonderful trip on Princessa for the Helford River Cruise. I think this is one of the best things to do in the town. Lovely staff, gorgeous scenery.

It is hard to write a review about a boat trip when the main thing is the view really (which is stunning by the way) The cost was very fair indeed, the boat (Princessa) was in good shape, all to often pleasure boats are run down and rusty, not the case here, clean and tidy with good paint etc, very...

Went on a trip with this business and have to say what a pleasure. Having looked at prices for trips and realising how expensive others were for what you got we decided to go on this trip to the Helford. The family who run this are local Falmouth people whose knowledge is excellent and nothing was too much trouble as... More

We visited Falmouth this week and had varied weather from,torrential rain to brilliant sunshine. On the sunny day we decided to risk a boat trip and were extremely glad we did, we went on the princess down the river fal. It was a lovely two hour trip with commentary by the captain who pointed out all the places of interested... More
