The River Fal
The historic port and town of Falmouth is the perfect place from which to start your boat charter with Falmouth Rib Charters. Having parked and embarked Arriba at Falmouth Marina, we cruise towards the inner and outer harbour enjoying the views of the pretty harbourside village of Flushing on one side and the town of Falmouth itself on the other, passing the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club and getting a good view of the iconic building which is the National Maritime Museum Cornwall, Falmouth Docks and Pendennis Shipyard, one of the world’s leading superyacht builders. As we turn right out of the harbour entrance you will see Pendennis Castle and her sister castle, St Mawes, on the other side of Carrick Roads.
Falmouth is Cornwall’s leading south coast resort and home to Cornwall’s maritime heritage. A flourishing port for over 400 years, and the third deepest natural harbour in the world, Falmouth is a bustling town with a good mix of individual shops, high street chains and art galleries.
Falmouth has a good tradition of hosting sailing and food events throughout the year, including the Fal River Festival in June, Falmouth Regatta Week in August, and the Oyster Festival in October.
Should you wish to visit the town following your charter, you will find a lively atmosphere and a good selection of pubs and restaurants to choose from.
