We went on the harbour tour as part of our visit to the dockyards. It was an excellent way to spend an hour. The captain gave some very informative commentary.

An enjoyable hour (roughly) on the water, primarily for those keen to get a close-up view of the modern Royal Navy ships in port, with an informative commentary. Especially good right now as the new aircraft carrier - Queen Elizabeth - is in port. Obvious advice - dress warm unless it's a stunning day, you are on the water; amazing how many people get it wrong!

Good value, relaxing trip around the harbour. Great way to give legs a rest after walking round dockyard and Gunwharf Quay. Informative.

Very enjoyable. Captain tour information very informative. It was nice to see the Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier upclose after the recent TV programme. As it was a beautiful sunny day upper deck was crowded but still easy to see everything.

This was part of our 11 attraction ticket and was so good we went round again later! Pick up from either the old harbour or Gunwharf Quays and the tour will take you around the old dockyard, showcasing the RN's current fleet (or whatever is moored here at the time!) We were fortunate to see the immense carrier QE2 berthed and undergoing some maintenance, so that was good, as well as some of the other ships the RN uses. Tour carries on round to the commercial port area (ferries, etc) and then across to Gosport and the marinas along the way, before crossing back and skirting 'Spice Island' and Gunwharf Quays. The pilots have got their patter off to a tee, so I suspect it's pretty much the same banter for all the tours but it certainly makes for an entertaining trip round and adds to the experience! Well worth doing but probably pick a calm and sunny day as it may get choppy in the middle if it's windy?
