About the River 
People talk about the beautiful Fowey River but it is rarely seen at it’s best by visitors to Cornwall. Starting from Fowey you can enjoy the fabulous scenery and wildlife . 

The River Valley is surrounded by wooded slopes and water meadows mostly owned by the National Trust, with nature reserves, salt marshes and bird sanctuaries on each side. The whole area is teeming with Heron, Wildfowl, Cormorants and even Kingfishers, and quietly gliding you can get closer to them than you have ever been. With over 25 miles of shoreline and 1000 acres of water there is something for the whole family to enjoy.

Fowey River Expeditions
Our River Expeditions in Stable Canoes have been running since 1999, No experience necessary as a safety boat and river guide will always be in attendance. We have had customers who can’t swim and some who just want to re-light their passion for something they have not done for a few years. Any age welcome, under 16yrs need to be accompanied by an adult with under 8 yrs old being free. 

Boat Hire
Our Self Drive Hire Boats are a perfect for exploring the harbour and equally suitable for a beach picnic or for the captain that wants to moor up and fish. Licensed for 5 persons max, tuition, fuel and buoyancy aids included. 

Fowey Kayak Hire
Independent kayak hire for those with some experience, You now can travel for several miles of the river fowey independently. Advice on routes, tide briefing and a map are included so you can explore the river at your own pace.
