Family Holidays 

Bring family and friends to experience a unique adventure on “Lynher”. You will learn new skills such as small boats handling under sail, oar and engine. Beach safaris, foraging expeditions and amazing excursions on the river shores awaits you and your loved ones!


Day Sail & Residential voyages 

You can book a day-sail and bring as many as 12 people. Meet the crew and step aboard by 10:00 am. Lynher’s crew will show you all you need to know about the barge and prepare you for a day full of activities, expeditions and fun. Depending on the weather and tide, we might sail in the Plymouth Sound visiting the beautiful coastline stretching from Mount Edgcumbe to Cawsand Bay. Or we might go up the Hamoaeze and into the River Lynher, to explore the unspoilt shores of one of the most beautiful rivers in UK. Or, again, tide permitting, we could navigate the wide expanse of the River Tamar until it narrows at Calstock. Whichever way we go, it will be a unique adventure.


You can book a 24 hours residential experience,  join at 1pm and leave at 1pm the following day or a two-day residential for up to 10 people.
