Unfortunately due to the sea swell our boat was unable to go beyond Old Harry's Rocks, that said the captain still made sure we had our alloted 2 hours on the boat and was able to show us some othrt interesting things. Definitely worth the money.

Cruise with Confidence

Fabulous. We couldn’t make it around to Swange as the sea was rough, however the Captain instead incorporated Poole Harbour and Blood Channel with commentary instead which made up the full 2hrs. Overall we saw the best of all the different cruises. Apart from that the cruise was well run and value.

It was a enjoyable trip with interesting commentary and bar was open It was quite choppy on the sea though at times and I felt groggy as the boat pitched from side to side Also a sign said wear a mask but no one bothered except me I noticed It was a scenic tour though but expensive

We are locals and thought it would be an enjoyable trip to see our coast line from the water. This trip didn't disappoint in any way. Increcible views and with the talk was amazed at some of the history too. Thanks to the crew who had a sense of humour made our afternoon pleasurable and fun. Value for money. Would definitely recommend 👌 😃

Great boat trip

This is a really good 2 hour boat trip, excellent value for money but if it had been a lovely sunny day instead of a raging wind and cloudy skies it would have been so much better! It was pretty cold on the top but much more interesting to be outside. Because of the weather and tide we couldn't go as far as we were supposed to, which was a shame as the earlier boat ride had made it around further to the Jurassic coast but we still got up close to Harry Rocks and the captain certainly made sure we got the best views possible while making sure our safety was paramount. Loads of information from the Captain throughout the journey on all the islands and on some of the residents who live in the most expensive real estate in the country. We sailed by some tiny private islands as well as the much larger Brownsea and we went past Shell and Knoll beach on Purbeck Island. Well worth it - highly recommended.
