My husband and I with our 3 and 7 year olds hired a boat from Poole Boat Hire today. We had a great time and went to Wareham for lunch at the Old Granary. The ladies at PBH were extremely helpful, informative and friendly. The children particularly enjoyed spotting the RNLI crews at work in the harbour. Whilst I enjoyed checking out the sun seekers! Definitely recommend this as a great family day out.

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.

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!! :)
