Sheduled Sailings for Guests

Scheduled day's sailings for guests are planned for every Tuesday and Saturday during the summer from April through to October. Guests board Alice Rose from the pontoons at Smugglers' Cottage, Tolverne, where she is moored on the Fal River. This historic site is where General Eisenhower prepared and briefed his American troops before they embarked for their D-Day landings. Slipping from the pontoon, the first part of the day's cruise starts down the sheltered and beautiful Fal River and then out into the Carrick Roads. Proceeding past St Just, St Mawes and Falmouth harbours the passage-plan takes one over to the Helford River where guests can enjoy a picnic lunch at anchor in a quiet cove surrounded by one of the most stunning Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Scheduled sailings may be booked at reception before or after arrival and are charged at £85 per person to join up to eight guests at a time.This includes lunch on board with drinks.

Private Charter for Guests' exclusive use

Guests may also book Alice Rose for Private Charter on other days by appointment at £680 per day to include lunch, drinks and the Coxswain and Chief Steward. These days are entirely bespoke and can accommodate special occasions happening within the Fal River area.

Special Events during the Summer

Apart from our regular scheduled sailings there are also other sailings planned to watch popular maritime events such as the Fal River Festival in between 22nd and 31st May, the J-Class yacht racing from 23rd until 27th June and Falmouth Week Regatta starting on 7th August.

Naturally all sailings are dependant on weather conditions and the Coxswain's decision to proceed to sea.
