What should we wear?

This is entirely dependent on the weather, but it is advisable to bring layers in addition to lightweight waterproof jacket as it is usually cooler on the water than on land, and there may be some spray when we're travelling at speed. Flip flops are the best footwear choice, although in summer's days you're most likely to be barefoot while aboard!

If you think you may want to go for a swim, bring towels and a swimming costume. While there is room to get changed in the cabin, headroom is limited, so I would suggest wearing  your swimwear under your clothes to make life easier


Where can we be picked up from?

The preferred pick up/drop off point is from Mylor, as there's plenty of reasonably priced parking and no pick up/drop off fees, and the pontoons are accessible at all tide heights.


However, it may be possible to pick you up from Falmouth, St Mawes or St Just in Roseland, although these will incur additional fees. There will be times when the tides will not allow Carmen Rose to access these locations, but I will let you know if this is the case when you book.

Do you provide food and drink?

As we are not licenced to serve any food or drink, unfortunately we cannot organise picnics on your behalf. However, we have a small fridge on board, so if you'd like to bring your own picnic (along with paper plates and plastic cups) you are more than welcome!

Alternatively, we can stop off at one of the waterside pubs for a bit to eat. It is advisable to book ahead if you're seeking more than a drink and bar snack as securing a table con the day an be trickier during summer months.

Are children and pets welcome?

Yes of course. Life jackets are supplied for children (and adults) of any age, and we have a selection of different sized doggie life jackets on board too. The cabin makes a great place for kids to play, or somewhere for teenagers to hide with their mobile phones... There's a charging USB socket down there too! 

If you love dogs but don't have your own, we can usually supply Holly the boat spaniel to accompany us for no extra cost!  

What if the weather forecast is bad?

Unfortunately Cornwall cannot guarantee perfect weather every day. We will keep an eye on the forecast, and if it looks like it the day of your booking will be miserable, either through heavy rain or strong winds, we will give you the option to change dates if there is availability to do so, or refund in full all the monies you have paid  if there isn't.


The odd shower won't stop the trip from going ahead, but if it looks like the weather will impact your enjoyment of the day, re-arranging or cancelling is the preferred route to take! 

Is there a toilet on board?

Yes, there is a flushing sea toilet in the cabin. This is really only to be used for 'number ones' and if the call is more pressing, the skipper will try to get you to an onshore facility as soon as possible!
