“Fabulous experience”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

This was one of my Christmas presents so I had to wait a while for the season to start. Well worth the wait! What a thrilling way to spend 90 minutes. Loved every minute. Spotting puffins made it even more special. Absolutely make sure you book this trip if you get the chance.

Merry Christmas, Ho Ho Ho. Our vouchers always prove popular gifts.
Whilst still cool, it was somewhat warmer than December and very pleased the wait proved worth while.
Thank you very much for the review and we hope to see you again.

“A great way to spend 90 minutes in Poole”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

My wife & I went on the sea safari trip during May bank holiday, my wife is not a sea going person but after getting a safety briefing & fitted with warm waterproof clothing we boarded the boat.
During the run out of the harbour Steve pointed out the homes on Sandbanks & told us about Brownsea island & Corfe castle which was visible in the distance. The tour goes to Swanage, Durlston, Tilly Whim caves & Dancing ledges where you can see the nesting sea birds & rock climbers before returning to Poole. Steve & the skipper are both great tour guides and everyone on the boat said they had a great time out on the water.
A great way to see Poole harbour & the Jurassic coast :-)

Hi Paul, thanks for the positive review, which is a great help to others considering trips in the area.
In just 90 mins, we cram in a lot of brilliant sites and try to give information that is informative & entertaining.
The geology and wildlife change daily, so we never get bored of sharing it with our passengers.
Hope to see you and your wife again

“Amazing trip”
Reviewed 5 May 2014 via mobile

Went on the boat trip during the May bank holiday. The weather was not perfect and in these cases wrap up warm it gets cold out in the water! But it made the water choppier and therefore the trip was more fun!
They went quite far down the coast and we got to see puffins!
The tour guides were really informative and funny. All in all a great day trip and should be on everyone's to do list visiting the area.

“Thrilling afternoon!”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

Apprehension soon gave way to enjoyment on this trip! Informative and exciting at the same time, it's a wonderful way to discover more about the Jurassic coastline from a completely different perspective.

“Great Birthday experience”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

I booked this trip for my husband`s birthday, and the whole family filled the boat up. Although the weather didn`t co-operate the first time, when we were able to go, it was a really good experience. Steve is an excellent host, and very informative, and was really good with our six year old (who loved it and kept asking to go faster!). I would definitely recommend this if you want a fun group experience. We were even given fizz, wonderful. Thank you again Poole Sea Safari.
