“Breath taking”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

I remember the first time I stumbled upon this, I'd walked from Poole quay to Sandbanks, no idea where I was going or what I would find. It was a beautiful summers day and I discovered the ferry. I climbed on board and was blown away by the beauty of the whole affair. Who needs foreign shores when you have the views afforded from this ferry

“A Great Way to Cross the Harbour”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

If you want to go from Poole to Studland/Swanage, this is definitely the way to go. In the hight of the season you may have to queue for 45 minutes, but believe me it is worth the wait. It costs just £3.50 per car each way and takes only a couple of minutes to get across. Just enough time to get out of the car and stand at the top to see across the bay.

Much better than driving around the bay!!

“Short ride that saves miles”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

We had to queue for about 30 minutes at a busy time of day, but with a ferry every 20 minutes they handled the queues well.
Hardly time to get out of the car, but you get a great view from the top deck.
