Highlights

Harbour & Islands Cruise

Get the ultimate tour of Europe’s largest natural harbour and its banks, steeped in history, on this 70-minute cruise. Embarking from the bustling Poole Quay, history will be brought to life through fascinating facts and stories told by the Captain. You will also sail past Brownsea Island and castle, built by King Henry VIII.  Learn how the very harbour you are sailing upon dates back thousands of years to the end of the last Ice Age when it was formed and admire the beautiful scenery that helped inspire classics like The Lord of the Rings.

Jurassic Coastal Cruise

Enjoy this fantastic 2 hour 15 minute round trip cruise between Poole and Swanage, where you will be transported through over 2 million years of geological history. As you head towards the open sea, you will voyage through Poole’s picturesque harbour, close to Brownsea Island, affording great views on its magnificent castle, and continue past the exclusive houses of Sandbanks. From there you will sail onwards to observe the breath-taking, UNESCO-listed Jurassic Coast as your captain will provide you with amazing facts through the live commentary. Old Harry Rocks, Studland Bay and Swanage Bay are just a few of the landmarks you pass, before arriving to Swanage Pier and returning back to Poole Quay.

Return Cruise to Swanage

Explore both land and sea on this excursion to Swanage! On this trip you can choose to enjoy either two and a half or five hours ashore the picturesque coastal town of Swanage. After you sail through Europe’s largest natural harbour, seeing Brownsea Island, the beaches of Studland Bay and the beckoning opening cliffs of the UNESCO World Heritage Jurassic Coast you will arrive at Swanage. Here, from glorious sandy beaches backed by bustling promenades, to the fascinating history and wildlife waiting to be uncovered in the museums and parks, there’s something for everyone! Back on board on your voyage back to Poole, take in, once again, the magnificent sights from the open-air deck or comfortable saloon.
