Certain ship operations require permissions in order to be undertaken within port limits. See details of these and how to apply. In addition we would ask that we are notified of any proposed operation that may be noisy or have an effect on air quality or the marine environment. To voluntarily advise us of these operations please complete the Voluntary Reporting Form (90-012-01).
Vessels with serious damage or defects which may affect their ability to navigate or operate safely should report their situation to the Coastal State via Falmouth Coastguard prior to making for the Port.

Falmouth Harbour Commissioners maintain a number of commercial moorings in the Harbour which may be hired.
Tugs and Tows

Cruise Ship Tender
