While staying in Cornwall over the years we have visited Falmouth and, weather permitting, we have enjoyed hiring one of these boats out for a few hours.
I was a bit worried when my husband first suggested it because our grandchildren were quite young at the time but I had no need to worry. You don’t need any experience, the friendly owners always give you full instructions and a map and they are on the end of a phone for the entire trip. The boats are all fully equipped for safety and are really easy to handle and we thoroughly enjoyed our few hours and have done it ever since.
Now all our grandchildren are teenagers, they still ask if we can go on the boats in Falmouth. The argument is always who is going to get to drive the boat first. Now poor Nan and Grandad don’t get a look in!
There are two large car parks – one by Custom House Quay and the other by Discovery Quay - just a few minutes’ walk from the Harbour.
The boats hold up to six people and we think they are good value for money. You have to pay a deposit which is refundable providing, of course, that you don’t sink the boat!
