Poole Harbour Cruises
Take the Poole Harbour Cruise and enjoy a leisurely 75-minute cruise around Europe’s largest natural harbour.
Sail past gorgeous beaches and bays, past Poole’s beautiful islands and even catch a glimpse of the ancient castle on Brownsea Island. Poole’s natural harbour has so many islands you can even make a game of who spots the next one first!
If just sailing round isn’t enough for you and you fancy stopping off, Poole Harbour Cruises also run Sea Train adventures where you and the family can explore the quaint and beautiful town of Swanage, before taking a steam train through the English countryside along six miles of historic route on your journey to Corfe Castle. It’s definitely one of the most unique ways of seeing Dorset.
For a relaxed day out riding on the water, Poole Harbour Cruises has something for everyone. If there’s a special event happening, such as a fireworks show or an air display, they’ll often run an exclusive cruise so you get the best views from the water. They even run Sail with Santa cruises in the winter, with presents for the kids and mulled wine for the adults making for a very merry trip indeed!

We do strongly suggest you contact Poole Harbour Cruises before you set off on your family day out, just to make sure they are open and to confirm admission prices, as there is nothing worse than disappointed kids in the back of your car after a long journey.
