About Enterprise Boats
This unique sea route will take you past iconic maritime locations, historic houses and landmarks, as well as taking you up close to the array of ocean-going vessels laid up at anchor on the upper reaches of the Fal River. You'll cross the third deepest natural harbour in the world when you reach Falmouth with its bustling docks overlooked by two Tudor castles. Snacks, hot refreshments and toilets are available on board and there is also an informative commentary from the boat's skipper.

Enjoyed the river cruise in beautiful weather. Only downside was late arrival of boat in Truro and the subsequent loss of 1/2 hour in Falmouth. Not much, but a sixth of our time to wander.
