If you’re looking for exciting things to do in Falmouth, stand up paddleboarding (SUP) is a perfect activity for your Cornwall staycation.
Swanpool is a beautiful sand and shingle beach with easy parking, fabulous food at the outdoor café, fun bouncer, crazy golf course, water-sports and kayak hire.
Elemental UK is also based at Swanpool and offers lots of activities such as sailing, guided kayaking, windsurfing, canoeing, coasteering, raft building & SUP.
Orca Sea Safaris
Orca Sea Safaris is one of Cornwall's top boat trips, offering wildlife watching and coastal safaris in some of the UK’s most stunning waters. Leaving from Falmouth on the purpose-built Seaquest of Falmouth, the safaris aim to introduce you to the outstanding beauty of our coastline, while looking for wildlife that may be in the area. A huge array of species visit the area including dolphins, seals, whales, seabirds and basking sharks.
AK Wildlife Cruises
AK Wildlife Cruises offers more lengthy boat tours based at Falmouth Marina. Join them in search of some of the fantastic marine wildlife to be found in Falmouth Bay, such as seabirds, dolphins, seals and basking sharks!
River Fal Boat Trips
A trip on the St Mawes Ferry takes in Pendennis and St Mawes Castle as well as the wonderful views of the water... and there’s always plenty of wildlife to see so keep your eyes peeled for seals on Black Rock or that elusive pod of dolphins.
Explore Pendennis Castle in Falmouth - a mighty fortress built by Henry VIII to defend the country against invasion. Set on a headland with breathtaking views out to sea, this picturesque castle has defended Cornwall since Tudor times and played a vital role during the two World Wars. Today, you can experience the sights and sounds of battle and climb to the top of the keep to scan the horizon for enemies, as you're transported back to wartime Cornwall.
National Maritime Museum
The museum is located on aptly named Discovery Quay, and is a vast, iconic building, home to exciting exhibitions and a wide range of galleries taking visitors on a journey through the influence of the sea on history and culture.
