Then stop at this small but packed full of information hub. It's on the pier where the ferries arrive and has all sorts of local information and ideas about how to plan you visit.

Enjoyed an excellent trip from Truro to Falmouth by boat. Tea/coffee and biscuits on board. High tide and a really nice day. A little rain but fairly fine. Worth the money. Would definitely go again.

Great value trip toTruro, stops short at Malpas most of the time due to low water. Malpas itself is very pretty. The trip really explores the waterway and gives wonderful views.
