Poole Harbour and Island Cruise from Poole

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    After selecting a departure time to suit your schedule, climb aboard your awaiting boat at Poole’s quaint quayside and set sail on the calm waters of Europe’s largest natural harbor. Receive an interesting introduction to the history and geology of the region from your knowledgeable captain as you sail towards Brownstone Island, home to the impressive Corfe Castle.

    Capture panoramic views of the opulent houses of Sandbanks and the picturesque islands of Poole Harbour as you sail. Gaze at the glittering surface of the Blue Lagoon from a comfortable seat on the top deck, or relax with a cup of fragrant tea in the heated saloon area.

    When your cruise comes to an end, return to Poole Quay and continue exploring the town independently.
