Making Memories

Falmouth Boat Hire

A beautiful boating day bobbing out on River Fal and exploring the serene scenery of Falmouth and the Carrick Roads is promised when booking into Falmouth and Penryn Boat Hire. 

Established in 1954, Falmouth and Penryn Boat Hire is run by managing director Dave Fearn in partnership with George Pill. Between them, they have over 60 years worth of experience and knowledge of boating in the local harbour, rivers and waterways. From rowing around the harbour as young boys, crewing as teenagers to skippering their own fleet of pleasure boats. Both owners have spent their lives working in the boating and tourism industry in the local area so you can be rest assured that they will always strive to provide a memorable and safe experience. 

Their boats are large, easy to manoeuvre and possess a distinct “Cathedral Hull” design that increases stability on the water even in rougher weather compared to the typical ‘flat bottom’ or ‘V hull’ designs. Taking up to a maximum of 6 passengers, it’s the perfect family or group activity. 

Falmouth and Penryn Boat Hire runs April through to October day in day out (weather permitting). On arrival, you will have a full safety brief of how to use the equipment provided, where you can and can’t go and also a brief introduction to your vessel. Hire times span from just 1 hour right up to 8-hour hires. 

Set off from the centre of Falmouth, navigate the waters, spot sea life, and be your own captain for the day – what an adventure!
