The estuary of the River Fal and Falmouth Bay are idyllic locations for enjoying the water, whether you enjoy sailing, kayakking, fishing or simply want to sit back and enjoy the view from Pendennis Point. St Anthony Head with its lighthouse can be seen in the background.

Happy Seal on  the River Fal
Wildlife: Happy Seal on the River Fal

Spotted this lovely seal on the Trelissick side of King Harry's Reach on the River Fal. Seals appear to be as curious about people as we are interested in observing them. It's not unusual for seals to watch walkers as they walk beside the river or the coast path. At Porth Joke near Newquay we have had a seal follow us as we were walking on the path just above the beach as far as Kelsey Head. Every time we stopped it would stop and 'bottle'.

Seals will often swim into harbours or approach boats. Please remember not to disturb them. Do not get too close, they are wild animals.

If you think you have spotted a sick or injured seal do not approach it but record the location of the seal as accurately as you can and contact the British Divers Marine Life Rescue hotline: 01825 765546 (office hours) or 07787 433412 (out of hours) If possible stay at or near the location to guide the rescue team to the seal.

Sitting at Pendennis Point you can enjoy all types of watercraft coming and going. It's a great place to sit and watch the passing ships and smaller craft. This is the Northern Star.
