Fowey River Trips. Phone: 07776 141241
You shouldn't end your visit to Fowey before you've explored the river. Guided boat trips lasting 45 minutes can be taken from the town quay from as little as £7.00 per adult. The skippers are all local and happy to provide a commentary on the town and its history. Alternatively you can take longer trips to Lerryn or Lostwithiel subject to the tides. Boat trips to sea can also be arranged. Click on the link, phone for details or visit the blue hut on Town Quay for more information.

Sea Fishing Trips. Phone: 07845280731
Having no luck fishing from the shore? Dan Gummow offers sea fishing trips aboard his 9 metre Cygnus Cyclone fast fishing vessel, "Borlewen". His services include 2 hour mackerel trips, 8 hour plus shark fishing, or 4 to 8 hour reef fishing trips. I believe all equipment is provided but you should double check when you book. For more details see Dan's website below:
If you would rather explore the river at your own speed self drive boat hire might be more to your liking:
I prefer to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the river from a Kayak. Kayaks can be hired on a half day, full day or weekly basis or guided trips are available.
Fowey Kayak Hire. Fowey
Encounter Cornwall. Golant
If you have your own Kayak you can launch from Caffa Mill in Fowey along side the Bodinnick Ferry.
Alternatively you can launch from Golant at the slipway located at the far end of the public car park. You can also launch from Lostwithiel when the tide is high but I would advise against it unless you have someone to collect you from Golant or Fowey. Return trips to Lostwithiel are not really an option as you are likely to find yourself stranded in the mud as the tide retreats.
