We can supply pilots with as little as one hour’s notice but, for efficiency, would prefer prior movement notification and ETA updates by email.
We are able to take pilot booking via local agents or directly from the vessel.
For departures, vessels are required to keep us up to date with their intentions via their agent and, again, confirm their booking by VHF with at least one hour of notice.
The Prior Notification Form (PNF) contains all the details required by the Falmouth Pilot Services and the Port Authority Falmouth Harbour Commissioners (FHC). This must be completed in full, for all vessels entering port limits, whether they require a pilot or not.
