Coverack Harbour
Coverack, Helston, TR12 6SX

Coverack has a beautiful and distinctive harbour. It is a working fishing harbour and it is also a lovely place to sit and relax.

Coverack Harbour faces due West and is an ideal spot for catching the afternoon and evening sun. The harbour is always full of activity and hosts around 40 boats.

Fishing off the harbour wall is a very popular activity. Catches such as pollock, wrasse, bass, and mackerel are common. It is sometimes possible to see shoals of fish just off the harbour as they feed off the water’s surface. Fishing trips can be arranged with Coverack Harbour Boat Trips.

Swimming off the harbour is also very popular with the young and old alike. It is generally safe with no specific currents or strong tides, however always respect the water and be mindful that sea conditions can change quickly. Coverack is a working harbour and swimmers need to avoid swimming around water craft.

Coverack Bay is a safe anchorage for yachts, although not if the wind is in an easterly direction.

It can be possible to arrange a mooring for small craft on the harbour. This is done through contacting Coverack Harbour Master, Jon Carey (telephone: 01326 280638)
