River Tamar at Low Tide

Explored the Tamar today, unfortunately due to the tide times and our earliest arrival time we had to set off on falling water. Managed to get one bend past Morwellham Quay before bottling it and turning back. Our rib doesn't draw much water.

Q. Does Calstock ever get cut off?
Q. For how long is Gunnislake navigable?

Unfortunately the Tamar Inn at Calstock was extremely slow serving food and it felt too close for comfort on our return from there.

Some amazing scenery along the way though. And what a large vessel we saw at Morwellham!

Hi Limecc, I have had similar experience.It's not always easy to plan when you have to travel!
It is a great stretch of water, as is The Lynher ( St. Germans) river, just downstream of Royal Albert and Tamar bridges. Usually very quiet, with some naval activity at times. Ebbing tide is a problem beyond Dandy hole, just before St. Germans, but worth the detour. We also enjoy The River Yealm, to Newton Ferrers. Needs a bit of care on approaches from the West, but, again, a lovely spot. Last time I went I witnessed a warship giving a power boat skipper some stern advice about col regs over the radio! It pays to keep clear! There is a strong ebb tide through the Hamoaze too between Bull point and the Naval base.
