Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What an amazing experience from start to finish, very quick thorough response from the moment I enquired and such fantastic customer service throughout, I cannot fault this company. Each and every staff member was a pleasure to talk to. Would definitely recommend and will hopefully be back next summer to visit again. We spent two hours having a lovely leisurely cruise around brownsea island, such amazing views of the harbour, it was a birthday surprise my boyfriend won’t forget in a long time!

Really nice lady got us all sorted with a good safety briefing and life jackets along with good knowledge of where to take the boat for the best experience.

Great little self drive boats which take you around Brownsea Island. Safety demo is thorough and easy to get onto the boats from Fluid Surf Shop in Sandbanks. Truly magical experience. Will definitely be back!

Great value boat hire, which is easy to drive, if you fancy a little trip out around the local area and Brownsea Island.

Boats were easy to operate; the staff were gave a very detailed explanation on how to do so. We took on the two hours and was definitely worth it to explore some of the smaller private islands around brownsea. Would do it again.

Fantastic way to see the harbour travelling on your own self-drive boat. Amazing views of the islands and wildlife. You couldn't have wished for a better day. Will remember for years to come. Friendly staff. Neat little boat, plenty of space. Great to take a picnic. Felt really safe. Good for families, friend and parties.
