Overview
Poole is one of Europe’s biggest natural harbors, and the ideal place to go on a sightseeing cruise. Get access to stunning harbor island views that you wouldn’t see from on land, and glide past Corfe Castle, the Sandbanks, Brownsea Island, and the Blue Lagoon. As you travel, a guide provides fascinating commentary, including stories about how Poole Harbor was formed in the last ice-age.
Highlights
  • Enjoy a Poole sightseeing cruise on a traditional fishing boat
  • Get great photo opportunities of the Blue Lagoon, and Corfe Castle
  • Put away the guidebook and let a guide teach you about Poole’s history
