BOATING

Bring your own boat to Gillan creek, or hire one of our wide range of small craft. We have drying and deepwater moorings, large dinghy and trailer parks and easy launching with a tractor available if needed.

We have diesel launches suitable for larger families or for fishing further out in Falmouth Bay, and outboard motorboats better for the beautiful upper reaches or for lazing in one of the coves.

Sailors will enjoy our Drascombe Longboat cruisers, Wayfarers, Lasers and the Toppers so popular with teenagers.

Single and double kayaks, as well as rowing boats, are available from St. Anthony and enable access at high water to over a mile of gorgeous unspoilt river leading to the head of Gillan Creek, and can also be used on the Helford in fair weather.

Our boats have full safety equipment and lifejackets. Instruction is given on the motorboats; only competent sailors may take the sailing boats, though sailing tuition is available.

From novice to sailor, from family to fisherman, whether you hire for a couple of hours or a full week, you will be enchanted by the magic of the river.

As Ratty said… ‘There is nothing, absolutely nothing half so much worth doing as just messing about in boats’.
