Slight nerves but all went well. My husband did all of the driving and he said the throttle was very stiff to manage. The guy did say to be fair but there was no other boat free so...The guys have a great system going and you are well informed. Safety measures seem great too. All I would say is that we wanted to stop at Trelissick House, but couldn't see the jetty. We thought it would be in the cove by the white house on the hill, but it was further down by the ferry. A photo of the jetty and better instruction here would have been useful. The other 2 places to stop were off the table because of the low tide so we found ourselves with an hour to kill which was a bit intense, especially when the heavens opened and it got really choppy at one point. A really fun way to spend time on the River Fal though and see points of interest such as Pendennis Castle, St Mawes Castle, Black Rock, King Harry Ferry and Smuggler's Cottage.

Hi Alison. We think this review is meant for a different company. We are Falmouth Lifeboat Station, part of the RNLI, the charity that saves lives at sea. Thanks, Marquita.

Holidaying in Mevagissey we visited some relatives in Falmouth. They suggested we visit the lifeboat. We were shown round the lifeboat by a former crewmember. Awesome machine. Awesome guys.

I am so grateful to the Falmouth Lifeboat team for giving us a tour of their facilities. My 4 yo was overjoyed and literally rendered speechless by being on the boat and the experience has stayed with him, as it’s still mentioned. For the grown ups, I got a real flavour for the skill and excitement of a rescue. It’s free, but please please please bring cash for their shop and donation jar. They are entirely self funded and the daily cost of funding lifeboats in the U.K. is prohibitive.

Lovely, tour by a very friendly, enthusiastic retired lifeboat man. Really informative and very informal. No cost but we did make some purchases as part of our donation. Lovely items in the shop - you will not be able to resist and it is a very good cause. They do a fantastic job.
