This unique sea route will take you past iconic maritime locations, historic houses and landmarks, as well as taking you up close to the array of ocean-going vessels laid up at anchor on the upper reaches of the Fal River.

You'll cross the third deepest natural harbour in the world when you reach Falmouth with its bustling docks overlooked by two Tudor castles.

Snacks, hot refreshments and toilets are available on board and there is also an informative commentary from the boat's skipper.

Although the boat ostensibly goes from Truro to Falmouth, it is subject to the tides. Having bought our tickets we were taken by double decker bus to Malpass (dropped off by The Heron pub - see reviews elsewhere, but worth a visit). This journey is less simple than it sounds with narrow roads and overhanging trees (and selfish parking) making... More

We were told to get to St.Mawes harbour to catch the ferry at 9am to Falmouth, this would allow us then to have an hour to walk around before the enterprise ferry would then take us at 10.30 am to Truro, but having the chance to stop to visit trelissick gardens first. We arrived at 10.15 am, sat waiting for... More

We enjoyed a lovely evening cruise from Falmouth, up to Truro and back. We saw seals, seabirds and even a pair of Ospreys which was a real bonus. The crew were excellent and the commentary was very interesting and informative.

Enjoyed the one way trip from Truro to falmouth with friends. Intermittent bits of history and option to stop at the gardens. I stayed in Falmouth afterwards and took the train back to Truro.

I would highly recommend Enterprise boats. We went on 2 separate trips with them in August on my birthday weekend, both trips were brilliant, helpful and friendly staff, good size boats, very professional. Beautiful part of Cornwall and great seeing it from the water, gives you a different perspective. And we had glorious sunshine all weekend which topped it off.... More

Enjoyed the cruise albeit a little late arriving; very disappointed however not to cruise back into Truro even though the tide was high enough. The trip was advertised as being from Truro to Falmouth and return but didn't expect to have two trips on the bus to and from Malpas, spoiler an otherwise enjoyable day. Crew were very attentive and... More

Went on the boat tour just last day of the season! Crew are extremely friendly and you can buy tickets online a few minutes before they sail. You get 10℅ discount and just show the email on your phone, so if you are only holiday, you don't need to print the tickets off. We left from Malpas and had couple... More
