Koru Kayaking have taken over Helford River Cruises. Tom and Hetty Wildblood, of Koru Kayaking felt very privileged to be asked by Budock Vean Hotel to take over the running of the Cruises.
Hetty said: “We were really excited to be able to show people Helford River and Creeks from another perspective and look forward to offering private charters, which are ideal for special occasions like birthdays, weddings and even engagements in addition to daily cruises!”
Hetty and Tom have been running Frenchman’s Creek Koru Kayak Adventures from the Budock Vean Hotel foreshore for more than two years now. Hotel guests and Koru customers have all enjoyed a leisurely stroll through the hotel’s award winning gardens, before enjoying a two hour stunning guided kayak adventure along Port Navas Creek, the Helford River and Daphne du Maurier’s inspiration Frenchman’s Creek.
Tom said: “We love the peace and tranquillity of the Helford River and are very excited to be adding the Helford River Cruises to our offering. The cruises will allow us to share even more of the Helford River and Creeks with our customers.
“The cruises will be in a beautiful blue 19 foot Cygnus, called the ‘Hannah Molly’, which has been named after hotel owner, Martin Barlow’s daughters.”
The boat only seats up to twelve people and has comfy cushions making it a really bespoke and comfortable experience. Amply free parking, great hotel facilities and a relaxed stroll through lovely gardens, you really feel like you are spoiling yourself. The hour and half cruises take you along the Helford River past Trebah and Glendurgan Gardens and up Daphne du Maurier’s inspiration Frenchman’s Creek.
Hetty said: “Seeing the Helford River and its delights is certainly best explored on the water!
