Tom the boatman met us at the jetty, his smile and love of his work shone through, such a nice bloke. Unfortunately we went on a very cold Easter weekend but beautiful none the less. Would love to return on a warmer day. Highly recommended.

We went on the river cruise while staying at Budock Vean hotel. The walk to the jetty through the hotel gardens is beautiful.
The skipper was very knowledgeable and kept us entertained with his wide knowledge of local history and wildlife, and it was great to see some of the creeks we had walked along from the water.
The scenery is stunning and we saw egrets and herons among other birds.
A very enjoyable boat trip, which we would be pleased to do again.

A fabulous two hours spent looking at stunning properties, incredible boats and beautiful wildlife. Hetty, was a very informative guide who had great local knowledge. The highlight was sitting in near silence in Frenchman's Creek and listening to a Kingfisher's song. Good value and highly recommended.

Have been on the river cruises twice - once just my husband and I and the other time with two teenage boys. Great opportunities for photos - egrets in particular. Peaceful end to an exciting day. The Captain (Roger) had a great sense of humour and was able to give us lots of local colour which was particularly appealing to my sons.
