Falmouth Pilot Services supply safe and efficient pilotage for the Falmouth Pilotage area, at the approach to the English Channel. Pilots are contracted from Falmouth Pilots LLP. The partnership of six pilots holds an extensive amount of knowledge and experience, and is supported by a dedicated team of pilot boat crew and support staff to offer a comprehensive, 24/7 service.

The service supports the diverse range of operations in the area and supplies pilotage to the multiple ports authorities; Falmouth Harbour Commissioners, Port of Truro, The Falmouth Docks & Engineering Company and the quarries on the east side of the Lizard peninsula.
