5 Things to Photograph on an Enterprise Boat Trip

From 15 August 2013

An Enterprise Boat trip along the Fal River is amongst the most beautiful trips in the world.

The trip passes breathtaking scenery with lush woodlands, historic sites such as Trelissick house and the vast Falmouth harbour.


We have put together our picks of what not to miss on an Enterprise Boat trip!

Top tip: Make sure you have plenty of storage on your memory card as there is an abundance of beauty.

1. Malpas

A small village just slightly down river from Truro with some of the best views of the river. The ferry stops here so you can get off and enjoy the marvelous scenery.

2. Approaching Truro

As you approach Truro* you will see the heart of the city, the famous three spired catherdral, one of only three in the UK. The cathedral domiantes the city with it's impressive height at 250 feet. Make sure you have your camera ready as this view is one not to be missed.

*Not all boat trips run to Truro due to tide, check with the skipper and at the tickets offices on the day.

3. Falmouth Harbour

The third deepest natural harbour in Europe, Falmouth habrour is the main hub of marine activity in Cornwall. As you pass you will see large ships, luxury yachts and a wealth of other marine traffic. Get your camera ready and see what you can spot. 

4. Trelissick House

Just as the Fal River and Carrick Roads meet you will see a glimpse of the famous Trelissick House. Trelissick House is situated in the unspoilt Trelissick Gardens. The house dates back as far as 1750 with a colourful history. The boat stops at a pontoon where you can get off and explore Trelissick.

5. King Harry Ferry

The King Harry Ferry is chain ferry that joins both side of the river. The ferry carries 300,000 cars every year and saves 5 million car miles! Just up river from the ferry you can often see the massive laid up ships.
