Attraction Information

Referred to by some as the jewel of England’s south coast, by others as simply a brilliant day out; City Cruises Poole will take you on a journey across the waves to discover the beautiful Jurassic coastline.

There’s nothing quite like being out at sea - the wind in your hair and smell of seaweed are a welcome escape from landlubber life. Poole Harbour is a particularly lovely spot to catch some waves as it’s Europe’s largest natural harbour studded with beautiful bays and classic British beaches. A Cruise will give you plenty of time to marvel at the castle on Brownsea Island and view the famous houses at the Sandbanks.

In 70 minutes, travel along the Jurassic Coast and ask your guide to explain the historic significance of the area. The view is made up of dramatic drops, chalky white cliff faces and if you’re lucky, the odd puffin! Jump aboard the Sea Train Adventure to explore the area by rail and water or hop off at one of the water shows for a coastal education.
