Tall Ship Kaskelot, a celebrated star of numerous movies, returns next month to grace the waters off our stunning Cornish coast. 

For 2  days only this majestic 47m long Tall Ship will be berthing in Fowey Harbour, offering twice daily sailing trips to members of the public on the 9th and 10th July, embarking at Fowey Town Quay. Offering a unique sailing experience for enthusiasts of every age, the day trips will provide a wonderful sense of days gone by.

The day sails aboard Kaskelot, widely regarded as one of the finest wooden hulled tall ships currently in operation, will offer a truly different perspective of Cornwall’s magnificent coastline. Visitors on board will have the chance to explore the ship discover the remarkable craftsmanship of the ship wrights responsible for maintaining the ship in her magnificent condition.

Kaskelot, constructed from oak, was originally built in Denmark over 75 years ago by the renowned and respected shipyard J. Ring Anderson. Extensively refitted in 2013 to an extraordinarily high standard, she now blends modern luxury and technology, whilst retaining all her historical glory including wooden decking and an extensive cargo hold. 

Visitors can board Kaskelot at Fowey House Quay for as little as £48.00 per adult and £32.00 per child (under 13), or £128.00 for a family of four. Funds raised through ticket sales go to supporting the on-going maintenance and running costs needed to keep Tall Ship Kaskelot in service as one of the few remaining examples from a bygone era.
