Approach and Entrance - Follow the navigation buoys marking the deep water channel up the Fal Estuary from the entrance. At Turnaware Bar there is the first of three visitors pontoons. Next is the King Harry Ferry, continue up the King Harry Reach past the laid-up shipping berths and take the starboard turn around Tolverne and the Smuggler's Cottage. Passing further laid-up shipping berths, follow the main channel to port past the mouth of Ruan Creek and continue up the river following the clear navigational marks. The next visitor facility is another visitor pontoon at the beginning of the Woodbury Reach just before the hamlet of Malpas. If you continue up the river further, past the Woodbury Reach you pass Sunny Corner Beach before reaching Lighterage Quay, a commercial facility and the tidal defence gates of Truro, which are only closed on very high springs. Alongside the tidal defence gates there is a pontoon attached to the shore with a fresh water supply. Through the gates there is a slipway to starboard and if you continue up the channel, marked by port and starboard post marks, you will wind your way up to Town Quay, in the centre of Truro. The Upper Quays of Truro are tidal and access is restricted to vessels with a draft of not more than approximately 2m.
