We decided to take a harbour tour on our day out and Poole and wants disappointed. This tour was very covid safe, unlike others that seemed to pack them in onboard. The pilot was very knowledgable and gave us plenty of information during the tour on the inner islands and sandbanks, he even spotted a lone seal amongst the glistening waves, which was good for the children onboard. Very clean, very safe and reasonably priced. Well recommended.

Great attention to detail. No overcrowding and the boat and seats sanitised between trips. Attentive staff, social distancing made easy!

Lovely trip to brownsea island on a beautiful October morning from Poole. At first it seemed slightly expensive (£31 for 2 adults and a child) for a trip to the island. On the way home we were pleasantly surprised we went back the scenic route round the harbour's islands, complete with information provided on route by the skipper, which made the fee seem a lot better value for money. There's am entrance fee also once you get to brownsea if you aren't national trust members (£7 each). Top tip, if you sign up to become members to the national trust once there you get half your ferry fee back in cash. Would recommend, especially on a nice day

We decided to go on the boat last minute and we weren't disappointed. I only thought it would go to Brownsea island and back. I was wrong. It went round a few little islands and we were told all about them. We even saw Harry Redknapp house. The trip lasted over an hour. Definitely worth the money.

I took my Mum on the trip from Poole Harbour to Wareham, where we had over an hour in Wareham to have a wander, and get a coffee and sandwich. We were there early (as recommended) and were able to sit on the top deck of the boat and enjoy the harbour sights, sounds and smells for half an hour before the boat departed. The commentary was very informative - I have lived locally most of my life but learned things I never knew - but not intrusive, with plenty of quiet time to enjoy the views of the harbour and then the riverside. The staff were all so helpful to my Mum as she got on and off the boat. Pick a clear day for the best views and to sit up the top rather than inside.
