Travelling around the Fal River and Roseland Peninsula
The Fal River boasts some of the best boat trips in Cornwall and travelling by boat is one of the best ways to enjoy the unique waterways of the Fal River and the Carrick Roads. Enjoy the harbours of Falmouth and St Mawes, the tranquil waters of the Fal River and even the lush banks of the Helford.
The King Harry Ferry provides a vital link between Falmouth, Truro and the Roseland Peninsula; a historic crossing point for over 500 years.
Don’t forget to grab your Fal Mussel Card to enjoy all the benefits of the ferries and other public transport links at discounted prices.
A journey on the St Mawes Ferry takes you across Falmouth harbour, the third deepest natural harbour in the world, to the idyllic fishing village of St Mawes with its own stunning harbour.
A trip on the St Mawes Ferry takes in Pendennis and St Mawes Castle and there’s always plenty of wildlife to see so keep your eyes peeled for seals on Black Rock or that elusive pod of dolphins.
The Helford ferry connecting the North and South banks of the Helford River has been running continuously since the Middle Ages. Its customers visit the several beautiful gardens on the banks of the Helford, the pubs and also to enjoy the many interesting walks.
