Rock Marine Services run a ferry to get you out to the moorings although at 75 for the week it's more than the mooring!

Will let you know how I get on.
Its a nice place to head out from.... you have Gulland and Newland islands when you head out of the estuary. Gulland is the further out to your left and you can often see seals on the mainland side of the Island

If you head out left across the bay towards Port Quin and take it fairly slowly you may well spot some Dolphins as well.

Have fun

My rib is based in Mylor, very friendly but not the cheapest for moorings.

There's usually a pod of dolphins hanging around the estuary at Padstow somewhere. 2 years ago we had dozens around us as well as 3 basking sharks.

Just read the whole thread, quite amusing.

I'm not Cornish but have lived here since '76, I've spent most of the time in the sea (diving) or on the sea (snorkelling/boating). I went to school at Newquay and DJ'ed around Cornwall for 27 years (including 16 at the Bowgie).

My experience of the Cornish coast is on a good day you can't beat the north coast, unfortunately there are more bad days than good. I based my boat charter from Mylor as it was cheap & closer than Falmouth, and, the south coast will allow me more days out. I do 150 dives a year myself around Cornwall, I always prefer the north coast but out of those 150 dives only 30'ish are on the north coast because of the weather/conditions.

I must have 'staggered about' to your deft spinning of the 'wheels of steel' on a few occasions. Bowgie was an every Friday event for our gang. The Cult, Billy Idol, Tuborg Gold in Dustbins and 'real deal' original surf chicks. Heaven.
Did you bump into Roy Cruse on the Newq DJ circuit?

Don't recognise the name.

I spent 16 years at the Bowgie, 5 years Loft & L2, 3 years Isobar, Berties/Fosters/Koola/Sailors/Corkers/Plum Tree on and off for years as well as hotels and camp sites around Newquay. Started DJ'ing the Bowgie in 1980! 3 years mobile before that. God I'm old

On top of that I've worked in builders merchants all over Cornwall too.

Yeah, we were going over there during the mid-eighties to early nineties. You must have workeed with some of the Biggies Jules, Digweed etc. Judge Jules kicked off in Newquay. He's Rick Stein's nephew apparently.

Unfortunately, Newquay has lost it's these days.
