Best Ways To See Cornwall From The Water

Sparkling water, salty sea air and spectacular views. What better way to spend a summers day? Escape the crowds and the heat this summer and discover the best ways to see Cornwall from the water...

Hire a Boat

Pack a picnic, grab your swimsuit and be your very own captain for the day! Explore quiet creeks, find your very own private beach, swim in the river and stop off at waterside pubs. Try Mylor Boat Hire from £75 for half a day for up to 6 people (no experience required).

Pleasure Cruise

Take a trip from Falmouth on the MV Princessa and see the harbour and docks before heading out to sea and then up the Helford River. If you're lucky you might spot dolphins, basking sharks or seals. Adults £15, kids £7. 

Go Fishing

A great way to not only see the coast from the water but also to bring home dinner on a mackerel fishing trip! Try Huntress Charters in Mevagissey - adults £20, under 14's £15.

Sea Safari

Discover Cornwall from a different perspective as well as spotting plenty of wildlife on a sea safari from Falmouth. You could see dolphins, seals, whales, seabirds and basking sharks. Discover more from Orca Sea Safaris.


Get up close and personal with the coastline! A day scrambling along it, through it and swimming around it with a coasteering trip. You'll certainly keep cool! Discover hidden coves, secret caves, sea arches and more. Try Kernow Coasteering in Penzance.

Don't forget to wear the right shoes for your day on the water! Ladies try these Josef Seibel Annie 04 sandals (and they're in our sale!) or men will love these Rieker Adventure Sandals.
