Took one of the Picarooner motor boats out today. Good safety briefing and all equipment in great condition. Beautiful location, enhanced by a really friendly experienced helpful team who made sure we got the most from the day. Very well priced and thoroughly recommended.

If you want to get on the water in the Fal/Carrick Roads or Helford area of Cornwall then I highly recommend Mylor Boat Hire. Excellent customer service.
