More Fowey Shipping - All Sorts!

There has been a very varied range of vessels that visit Fowey! The harbour is always interesting...

Visiting Warships

Visiting Cruise Ships

Nope! Just "The World" on a visit.

The World in Fowey
"The World" - a live-aboard cruise ship
(I really missed my opportunity here... I should have gone out in my boat that day...
...I could have claimed that I had sailed around the World!)

Silver Whisper at Fowey
Some cruise ships have to anchor outside the harbour, as did here the "Silver Whisper".
(She has been inside the harbour before, but weather, time and tide do dictate where some ships anchor or moor)

Cruise ships-eye-view of Fowey Harbour!
