ROWING BOAT HIRE OVERVIEW
Why not hire one of the self drive rowing boats from the Helford River Boats team to explore the famous Helford River, here in Cornwall.
All our hire boats are rigorously inspected by a qualified boat surveyor before being signed off ready for licensing by the Truro Harbour Master. Before a licence is issued for each boat, the Harbour Master checks that all safety equipment is in date and safely stored in water tight containers along with an anchor, pair of oars and boat hook.
The Helford River Boat team will first help select the right size life jacket for you, run through a safety briefing followed by a demonstration of how to use the little Yamaha powered outboard engine. The HRB team will also advise how to explore the Helford River safely and how best to get the most out of your time on the water.
Amongst the many hidden coves on the Helford Estuary is Frenchman’s Creek, made famous by Daphne du Maurier in her book of the same name. It is an easy boat journey from the Helford Passage boat pontoon and great place to drop anchor and enjoy lunch! From Frenchman’s Creek, you can quickly sail to the many other hidden coves and small beaches on the Helford estuary.
