The leaves of the ancient oak trees are really starting to turn now and the cobalt blue skies, pinky early evening sunsets and calm waters the Helford is such a stunning place to be.

Our 90 minute Helford River Cruises depart from the Budock Vean Hotel, so you can enjoy a lovely stroll through their sub tropical gardens before boarding at the foreshore. You might like to enjoy a hearty breakfast, light lunch, afternoon tea or dinner before or after your cruise.

The wildlife is in abundance too the ancient oak tree branches filled with swans, herons, little egrets and the river buoys with cormorants drying off their wings from their latest fishing swim. We have even spotted dolphins last week and it’s a great time of year to spot kingfishers as they fly by along the water surface on Frenchman’s Creek!

We offer daily cruises tides and daylight permitting around the high tides check our weekly cruise times or contact us for more dates and to book. Private charters are available and cameras are welcome! Come and snap a stunning Autumnal photos this Autumn!
