St Mawes

The harbourside village of St Mawes on the Roseland Peninsula is just a short hop across the water from Falmouth, and you may choose to visit this attractive village as part of your luxury power cruise on the water with Falmouth Motor Boat Charters.

If you are holidaying on The Roseland, we can arrange to pick you up from St Mawes harbour.

The village of St Mawes is situated at the southern end of the Roseland Peninsula. The picturesque harbour with whitewashed houses is guarded by Henry VIII’s clover leaf shaped St Mawes Castle, with its sister castle at Pendennis Point just across the water.

The Roseland Peninsula has been designated part of Cornwall’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty for its landscape and unrivalled coastal scenery. With secluded coves, delightful creeks and countryside, scenic cliffs and headlands, there is plenty to do and enjoy during your holiday. St Mawes and The Roseland is a haven for walkers, wildlife lovers and watersports enthusiasts.

There are boutique hotels near the sea, self catering cottages and friendly bed and breakfasts should you decide to stay in St Mawes for your holiday – we are happy to pick you up from St Mawes harbour for your day’s charter on Windana.

We are happy to arrange other times to suit you if these fit in with our other charter commitments. Suggested itineraries are included below but please do discuss any other special requirements you may have or if you have a specific destination that you wish to visit. Any proposed charter itinerary is subject to suitable weather conditions on the day and the Skipper’s decision is final.

Itinerary 1 – Half Day Charter

Depart Falmouth Marina, cruise through inner and outer harbour including the docks, travel north up the River Fal (Carrick Roads) past Mylor Harbour where you will find Castaways Wine Bar and Restaurant (a stop can be arranged if you wish) and on to Restronguet Creek and Point. Continue the cruise to Loe Beach, Pill Creek, Trelissick House and Gardens and past the King Harry Ferry. We can journey north to Truro (tides permitting) or return down river to visit the harbourside village of St Mawes and go ashore if you wish. If time permits we could cross Falmouth Bay and visit the picturesque Helford River before returning to Falmouth Marina in time for lunch.

Itinerary 2 – Full Day Charter

Similar to half day but taken at a slower pace so you can choose to visit one or more of the top quality pubs and restaurants in and around the river. Or you can choose to bring your own food with you and we can drop Windana’s anchor to relax and enjoy lunch on board.

Alternatively, and weather permitting, we can cruise up to the pretty harbour village of Fowey (approx 1 hour at sea) where you can go ashore and enjoy a stroll through the narrow streets of the town and take in the sights. We will return to Falmouth in time to explore parts of the river and possibly spot a seal or two at the entrance to Carrick Roads.
