Brian can tell you tales forever and all fascinating or you can just enjoy the scenery. The £10 picnic from Kittow he provided was more than enough for the four of us and very tasty. Lucky enough to have a sunny trip and all four...More

This was a surprise 70th birthday treat arranged by our daughter for my husband. It couldn't have been better. Excellent picnic, Brian is just a natural guide. We had the best most relaxing time in the most beautiful scenery. The best views of Fowey.

A very relaxing way to explore the Fowey Estuary! No racing about, Brian took his time around the Estuary telling us some great stories from the area. The beautiful scenery was complemented by a delicious picnic.

We had a fabulous day on the river for my mother's birthday. The boat was just lovely and the site's and river beautiful. With a fabulous captain thrown in. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Wonderful three hours spent aboard the Sunbeam as it travelled up the Fowey River. We saw the little town from a different perspective as we dined on a Cornish cream tea and chatted to the knowledgeable skipper, Brian. We saw herons, snowy egrets and, most...More
