River Fowey Boat Trips | Cornwall Guided Tours Water Estuary | The Cormorant Hotel Luxury Hotels Golant FoweyThe beautiful Fowey estuary offers plenty of ways to witness its beauty, but one of the best surely has to be from the water.

With the sea having such an important role in shaping life around Fowey, Golant and Looe, it seems only right to take to the water to get around the area and see its sights.

So we thought we'd take a look at three of the best river tours, which will take you past our hotel with river view in Cornwall.

Fowey Harbour CruiseCornwall Best Holiday Destination UK | Travel Industry Awards Six Years In A Row | Cormorant Hotel Fowey Golant

This45 minute trip around the harbour gives you the chance to take in the sights from Fowey's up-river dock all the way to the harbour mouth, with the boatman offering running commentary on everything that you see.

The trips run all day every day in summer and don't need to be booked in advance throughout the day and do not need to be booked in advance.

Lerryn and Lostwithiel TripsBest Fowey River Walks | Low Tide At Lerryn | The Cormorant Hotel & Restaurant Golant Cornwall

Both trips up river to Lerryn and Lostwithiel run on a few select occasions each month, when high tides make them possible.

Each trip lasts for around three hours and will see you taken up river to either Lerryn or Lostwithiel, where you'll have about an hour to explore before departing for Fowey again.

The trips will see you pass The Cormorant, so don't forget to give us a wave!

Fowey Picnic Boat

This boat trip offers more comfort and style than the other two, and you're also given the chance to choose where you go rather than stick to a pre-determined route.

Whether you want to explore as much of the river as possible or just drift quietly up one of the many lovely creeks while sipping champagne - the choice is yours.

If you wish the boatmen are also able to provide several amazing stories about Fowey, but you're also able to relax and simply listen to the sound of fish surfacing and water lapping.

You can also eat on the trip, with plates, glasses and cutlery provided, so all you need is a snack and a nice bottle of something chilled.
