We hired a self drive boat from the Christchurch Quay and what a wonderful way to spend an hour. The young man in the kiosk (sorry dont know your name) was very helpful and informative, giving good instructions about the boat and where we could go to. He offered life jackets to younger members of our party. Our boat had a canopy which was very useful when it started to drizzle. Thoroughly enjoyable.

We enjoyed a September boat trip from Wick ferry to Mudeford Sandbank on a glorious sunny day. Everywhere looks different when viewed from the river. The Boating services also hire out small motor boats by the half hour & hour. At Tuckton there is a cafe doing takeaway food at present.

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed the trip on the ferry from Tuckton tea rooms to Mudeford beach. Reasonably priced trip & helpful staff. You can hop on / off at Mudeford & Christchurch Quay. Ferry was open top and the weather wasn’t kind to us, so plan carefully!

We went on a lovely and joyous boat trip around the river with my family. When we first arrived, all the staff were in very good spirits and were very welcoming. We asked about the river cruise and the self drive boats and they were very informative with what we would see and the difference between the two. We decided to go on a self drive boat, the boys were very helpful getting my 90 year old mother into the boat doing as much as they can during this period, holding the boat steady and guiding her to the most stable parts of the boat. When we were in the boat, they were very informative and clear about where to go and how to use the boat which made the trip very easy and stress free! When we arrived back, once again the boys were very helpful with getting my mother out of the boat, I would highly recommend this to anyone, it was a wonderful experience. I cannot thank the young men enough (Jamie D and Dan D).

It’s the beautifully varnished, maintained 1930’s boats which give this ferry trip down the estuary such charm .. and the courteous crew who are thoroughly professional about safety and numbers . They could charge way more though I reckon . Best way to the beach too, avoiding parking !
