On our last Helford River cruise, nearly 30 years ago, it was too choppy to proceed out of the harbour so we cruised up the Fal instead. This time we were lucky with a trip aboard PRINCESSA. She's not very smart and catering is basic but if you want to see the Helford River and Frenchman's Creek, this is the... More

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!

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...
