In Falmouth you are surrounded by water, so why not take advantage? And there are plenty of Falmouth boat tours to embark on. Perhaps you want to catch a boat from Prince of Wales Pier to the pretty village of Flushing, just across the water, or to St Mawes?

Dolphin watching in Falmouth is also a possibility with a sea safari, where you’ll take in plenty of wildlife and nature. Or perhaps you’d like to take a ferry to Truro, it’s a beautiful trip through the waterways of the Carrick Roads.

Here are a selection of the best Falmouth boat tours. Bon voyage!

Fal River Ferries

The King Harry Ferry was established in 1888, as is one of only five chain ferries in England. Connecting St Mawes and the Roseland Peninsula with Feock, Truro and Falmouth, it departs every 20 minutes from each side, seven days a week. For convenience more than a relaxing trip on the water, it’s only a ten-minute journey across the River Fal, but you’ll certainly enjoy the views.

There’s also the option to float over to pretty village of Flushing or fishing harbour of St Mawes, both taking under 20 minutes by boat. Both routes run all-year round and seven days a week!

In The Event of Rough Weather

On all our wildlife trips advertised if for any reason the weather becomes too rough to leave the Carrick Roads and head offshore, we will still carry on with the trip but head back up the Carrick Roads and explore our wonderful and wildlife-rich Fal estuary which stretches all the way up to Truro. ​ These rivers are full of lots of wildlife and on board a boat is a beautiful way to explore the small creeks. A plethora of waders, deer and waterbirds can be seen, as well as visits from our seals, inshore dolphins and porpoises. Classified as a Special Area of Conservation, the Fal Estuary is nationally important for several migratory and waterbirds, such as ospreys, black-necked grebes and red breasted merganser. ​

The Fal is the third deepest natural harbour in the World and has over sixty miles of coastline and beautifully wooded bank side shore within this vastly diverse and rich in wildlife marine and estuary habitat.

Customer Testimonials

Molly Mesher

We've been on trips with Captain Keith and the crew many times now, often planning trips on our birthdays to come for an adventure at sea, and each time it has been spectacular. It truly is worth the visit no matter the weather or season, we've been when it's been a clear glass ocean and when weve hugged the coastline and each time its been more than worth it. The knowledge, comfort and safety of the team, plus the breathtaking views and spectacular wildlife, make it excellent value aswell as being a must for any trip to Cornwall. Please never stop 💙
Best wildlife cruises I've ever done, expertly led by Captain Keith and his team. Whether you get lucky and see lots of unusual wildlife (eg a super pod of >200 dolphins!) or a quieter day when it's mostly seals and seabirds, it's a fabulous experience. Wonderful mix of seafaring, geography and wildlife expertise, and all delivered with friendly good humour. Not to be missed!

Dan Tunnicliff

An amazing experience. We were all given good advice on what to look out for through our binoculars (take your own or hire a pair) and info about the local waters and animals. We saw gannets and gulls on the way out, then within an hour we were surrounded by bottlenose dolphins, including some very young calves. Captain Keith and Gabby made sure everyone knew where to look and that each person had a chance to stand on the front of the boat to see them right underneath you. They were so close it was unbelievable, we could hear them squeaking to each other. Spent some decent time with several pods then left them to move on at their own pace so it didn't feel like we were bothering them. On return to shore we saw some porpoises and a seal having a nap. The Captain really seems to care about the sea life which is lovely. The four of us had a brilliant day, we would definitely recommend!!

All aboard! 7 best boating vacations along the East Coast

Meg St-Esprit

May 22, 2024 // By Meg St-Esprit

By Meg St-Esprit May 22, 2024

Boat travelers can take in sunsets over the National Harbor marina

It's no secret that summer travel in 2024 will be hot. Even with rising prices and bookings, Americans still want experiences this summer. For some travelers, this means taking more than their suitcases on their next big trip: They're taking their boats.

Here's why boat ownership is skyrocketing and the best places for boating vacations this summer.

Why do people go boating?

People go boating because the community is tight-knit, and fellow travelers hop aboard to forge a new friendship or are open to lending a hand with a repair. While some larger boats have accommodations, many tourist destinations boast fabulous hotels and marinas with daily rental rates. This makes it easy to take even small pleasure crafts, like pontoon boats and speedboats, along for a boating vacation.

Advertisement Advertisement

If you've never traveled with your boat, there are some considerations to think about. State boating laws and regulations vary, so checking your destination's guidelines before embarking on a boat vacation is essential. For example, children under 18 can drive boats in some states, but the policies vary widely.

Boaters also should be aware of best green boating practices when traveling. The Stop Aquatic Hitchhikers campaign created guidelines for safely drying and cleaning boats' hulls between destinations.

If you want to kick back with a boat drink and watch the sunset over the starboard side, check out this list of some of the best places to take your boat on vacation along the East Coast.

Murrells Inlet, South Carolina

Murrells Inlet has a variety of marina options for vacationing with your boat

While nearby Myrtle Beach is famous for spring break trips and family fun, Murrells Inlet's slower pace is perfect for taking in some #boatlife while on vacation.

A small waterfront fishing town located at the south end of the Grand Strand, with a historic district listed in the National Register of Historic Places, Murrells Inlet is the perfect compromise for travelers who want to be near the beach but own smaller boats that can't handle ocean waves.

Marlin Quay can handle boats up to 80 feet long and has daily rental slips available. Book well before the summer season to secure a spot for your boat during your trip. The inlet waters are calm and perfect for fishing and water sports. Tourists can rent paddle boats, kayaks, and jet skis at Express Watersports to add more marine fun to their trip.

Age limit: In South Carolina, individuals born after July 1, 2007, must take an online boating test .

Portland, Maine

Portland is designed for relaxing New England boating vacations

Portland, Maine , is home to charming boutique hotels and many award-winning eateries, making it the perfect stop for a laid-back boating excursion. More than a dozen public marinas exist along Portland's coast, so there are plenty of options for boats of different sizes or travelers with specific docking needs.

Stop for dinner at Sur Lie , a James Beard Foundation Award semifinalist in 2023, or Thistle & Grouse , a downtown gastropub. Portland has that classic New England vibe that screams "boat vacation." Boating in Portland is seasonal, so it makes a great summer stop.

Age limit: Anyone born after January 1, 1999, must complete a boater safety course before cruising Maine's waters, but several online options exist.

Ocean City, Maryland

Located on a barrier island, Ocean City marinas take advantage of the quieter waters

Known for classic coastal fun along a 3-mile boardwalk, Ocean City is also perfect for family travelers with boats. The Jolly Roger amusement park juts out into the Atlantic on an iconic pier, and there's no shortage of eateries to grab a bite along the boardwalk.

There is a public boat launch at 64th Street and several marinas with daily or weekly slip rates. Since Ocean City is on a barrier island, the Isle of Wight Bay and Assawoman Bay have calm waters for smaller boats that can't handle the Atlantic's waves. The water near Ocean City is shallow, so tide charts are necessary for safe boating.

Age limit: Anyone born after July 1, 1972 , must take an online boating test before charting Maryland's waters for a boating vacation.

The Finger Lakes, New York

The Finger Lakes region of New York is a paradise for boating vacations

This collection of breathtaking lakes in western New York is rife with small hamlets and larger harbors, making it a top choice to take your boat for vacation. Comprised of 11 glacial lakes and Lake Ontario, vacationers can fish for bass, trout, and salmon in these pristine waters spanning 14 counties.

The Harbor Lights Marina in Hammondsport has gas and snacks, while Sutter's Canandaigua Marina offers gas and daily slip rentals. Choose the Finger Lakes for your boating vacation if you're seeking laid-back days without much hustle and bustle. There's plenty to do, but it's the perfect place to relax on board and soak in summer.

Age limit: New York's boating laws can be complex, so check out the guidelines before hitching up your trailer. Boaters born after January 1, 1978, need a safety certificate.

Martin County, Florida

Boating vacations in Martin County, Florida, include sunsets over the Roosevelt Bridge

Located along a quieter stretch of coast just north of South Florida's fun Space Coast (a reader-voted favorite for Best Summer Travel Destination ), Martin County is home to 10 quaint towns built around boat life. It's all centered around St. Lucie Inlet, part of one of the most biodiverse lagoon and estuary systems in the nation. Martin County is perfect for boating vacations year-round and offers a quiet setting adjacent to some of Florida's top destinations.

Pirate's Cove Resort and Marina in Port Salerno offers a full-service marina and 50 quaint rooms (each with a waterfront view). There also are chain options where guests can use rewards points, such as Marriott's Hutchinson Island Beach Resort on Hutchison Island. The hotel has a private marina and an 18-hole golf course for guests.

Age limit: Florida doesn't have a minimum age to operate a boat, but boaters must follow some requirements .

Charleston, South Carolina

Boaters can dock at The Beach Club at Charleston Harbor Resort & Marina

This boating vacation is perfect for travelers who love history and culture. Charleston has cobblestone streets and historic plaques, so walking tours are a great way to view the region. Water taxis take guests back and forth across the harbor, a convenient way to get to dinner, even if you have your boat on hand.

At The Beach Club at Charleston Harbor Resort & Marina , guests can sit on the wraparound front porch and take in the resort's marina and Charleston's skyline. A waterfront pool is a bonus at this grand old resort.

Age limit: In South Carolina, boaters born after July 1, 2007, must take an online boating test to drive a watercraft.

National Harbor, Maryland

The Capital Wheel overlooks the National Harbor and Washington, D.C.'s skyline

Washington, D.C., is already a top travel destination along the East Coast, but Maryland's National Harbor is the best way to take your boat on vacation to our nation's capital. Located along the Potomac River with city skyline views, it's the perfect spot to dock your boat and venture out on multiple excursions.

The Gaylord National Harbor Resort and Convention Center features a 19-story glass atrium, indoor pool, boat slips, on-site restaurants, and family entertainment options. For those who prefer a boutique hotel, the AC Hotel National Harbor is a good fit, and several other hotel chains are located right along the harbor.

There is no boat launch at National Harbor, so you'll have to park your vessel further up the Potomac or in the Chesapeake Bay. The staff at National Harbor Marina suggests using Snag a Slip to book dock space for your trip.

Age limit: Like Ocean City, boaters born after 1972 must take an online boating test .
