Water sports are the staple diet of the Fal River and you're certain to find something that floats your boat.



If you're on holiday to the Fal River or are lucky enough to live here then these watersports are a must.

Whether you're based in Falmouth, Truro, Helford or the Roseland there's a huge selection of watersports to get the adrenaline pumping and keep everyone happy.

Enjoy a powerboat ride, whip out the water skis or even try your hand at the traditional Cornish sport of gig rowing.

Apart from pasties the next thing Cornwall is most famous for is surfing! While surfable waves are rare in Falmouth, Falmouth Surf School offer lessons for beginners and will take you on a short drive to the breaks of the north coast.

Whatever takes your fancy, we've got it. So what are you waiting for? It's time to get wet.
