Explore Falmouth Bay in your own skippered speed boat
Carmen Rose is moored in the beautiful Mylor Yacht Harbour, a fifteen minute drive from Falmouth. This is the perfect location to set off from to explore the Carrick Roads, River Fal and the numerous creeks that lead off to and meander their way through unspoiled countryside and lead to tucked away hidden villages and historic sites. Falmouth and Flushing are just around the corner and are always home to a wide array of interesting local and visiting boats and ships. A short hop across the water and we can soon be in the famous old fishing village of St Mawes, and not far from there is St Just in Roseland with its stunning tucked away hidden church overlooking its own sheltered tidal pool.
Leaving the Carrick Roads takes us past the two King Henry VIII castles that guard the entrance to the harbour at St Mawes and Pendenis Point, out beyond Black Rock and "Fraggle Rock" lighthouse and into Falmouth Bay. Here we might be lucky enough to see dolphins and porpoises, and see the beaches and dramatic coastline as we make our way to the Helford River with it's rich literary history, celebrity homes and lush green shoreline as well as even more hidden creeks to explore.
Every trip is unique and can be tailored to suit your requests on the day. Whether you'd like peace and tranquillity, amazing scenery, historic buildings, hidden coves, secret smugglers tunnels, a relaxing cruise, a bit of adrenaline or a mix of all of the above, your skipper Giles will do his upmost to make your trip completely memorable and enjoyable for all of your group. If you'd like to stop off for a swim, or grab a quick drink from a waterside pub, just let him know and he will oblige. Or just bring your own food and drinks, sit back and relax and soak up all the sights and sounds this unique and incredibly beautiful area has to offer.
