Boats and Skippers

The Moyana & Fal River Cornwall

Heritage Adventures has partnered up with local ferry company, Fal River Cornwall, for our Estuary Cruises, which take place on board one of their classic wooden ferry, Moyana, skippered and crewed by knowledge local staff.

Built in north Devon in 1954, Moyana was the first ‘modern’ vessels to join the company’s Enterprise Boats fleet, and immaculately maintained, this luxury boat has been cruising the estuary ever since.

At 60ft long, with ample space for up to 90 passengers, she has twin decks, including a superb top deck viewing area and a beautifully fitted out interior saloon. With a fully stocked bar serving a selection of Cornish tipples, and toilets on board, Moyana is perfect for evening estuary cruises.
