The cruise starts when you park up the car and walk down through the stunning tropical gardens of the Budock Vean Hotel. The ample free parking at hotel sets the mood, then walking down through the gardens filled with beautiful flowers and waterfalls you reach the foreshore. The Hannah Molly, a 19 foot motor boat, seating up to 12 people is moored up just to the left of the bay on a small jetty.
Sit back and relax as we take you up Port Navas Creek towards the Helford River. Cruising down toward the sea we pass Helford Gig Club, the Ferryboat Inn, famous mansions and Trebah Gardens, before cutting across to the picturesque Helford Village. Now cruising up river take in the creeks including Frenchman’s Creek, which inspired for a novel written by novelist Daphne du Maurier.
Egrets, Heron colonies on the creeks mean they are often sighted. Arriving back at the Budock Vean Hotel jetty relaxed after enjoying the ancient forest’s and a lovely cruise with Helford River Cruises.
