How to get here

Here’s where you can find Fowey River Hire.


The Fowey River Hire Boathouse – Kayak, Sup and Boat self-hire
Our boathouse hire centre is located in the middle of Fowey town centre on Albert Quay, opposite the floating pontoon dock and short stay car park [up to 2hrs] Pl23 1AJ.

We recommend avoiding driving through Fowey Town Centre as it can be very busy in summer and is a one-way system. Our advice is to follow the signposts for the Bodinnick car ferry from the roundabout near the petrol station at the very top of Fowey. This will lead you into the back of Fowey to the Caffa mill & Old station yard car parks PL23 1DF. Ideally positioned on the flat and within easy walking distance, you just need to follow the road into town.

Guided River Expeditions
Our brand new activity centre is based within the public conveniences in Caffa mill car park, next door to the Bodinnick car ferry terminal and boat launching slipway. Please follow the directions above to avoid driving through Fowey town centre.
