Key Features

We live for being on the water, setting sail regularly every day from Poole Quay and Swanage Pier. With something to offer to all ages, why not explore Dorset’s sights like you’ve never seen them before.

Why not enjoy a tasty snack or a hot, cold or alcoholic beverage as you sail through Europe’s largest natural harbour or along the eastern tip of the Jurassic Coastline. We also work closely with City Sightseeing and Swanage Railway where you can combine one of our cruises with a hop on and off bus tour around Poole and Bournemouth or with a Steam Train ride to Corfe where lays ruins of an 11th century castle.

Our boats offer panoramic views, open air decks and indoor saloons that offer lounge seating where you can truly relax with your family or friends. All of our sightseeing cruises are commentated by our Captain, pointing out all of the picturesque sights for you to see on the way.

And we don’t just stop there, we also operate a range of cruises in London and York. You can find out more information on what cruises operate in these areas on or Whatever your idea of fun, get it on board an award-winning trip with us.
