“Fantastic fun and very well organised”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Thought we'd try something different and thought hiring a boat to take out into Poole Harbour would be fun.

We were very impressed by how well thought out and well organised these guys are. Boats are smart and easy to drive and simple maps and all safety gear provided. Even a couple of towels in case we wanted a swim or to fend off the spray!

We had a great time and will definitely come back.

“Fantastic day out with family and friends.”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

After being briefed on safety and provided with new and clean life jackets I headed out for the day with my children and friends.
We went to Wareham along the river and had such a fun day out.
The boat was very easy to use and the children also drove!
Poole boat hire is (in my opinion) the only way to really capture the beauty of
Poole harbour.
Really great value for money too!! :)

“Fantastic evening”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

We spent the afternoon and early evening exploring Poole Harbour and its Islands on a cracking little boat which was maintained to very high standards. The Staff on arrival could not have been more informative and helpful, everything was explained in great detail and made us all feel that we were in safe hands.
What a great day out! so much to see and explore, sipping Champagne and exploring the nooks around Brownsea Island, on returning I even received a box of chocolates for fathers day!
We are looking forward to another trip very soon! if you are looking for a great experience in Poole then look no further.
