This was a transport trip from Poole to Swanage where you can get on/off for a few hours before the return trip. It gave a great view of Old Harry's Rocks and the coastline. Captain was very good at describing the area and giving insight to the different locations in the area

We had a fantastic trip on your boat, the weather was beautiful and the sea swell was good,very informative narrative. My granddaughter’s loved it.l would recommend it to anyone wanting the thrill of the high seas & having a couple of hours to spare. Definitely worth the money & plan to take our next visitors on on the same trip!

We had a wonderful trip! Very polite and efficient crew and the Captain was very knowledgeable, providing us with lots of interesting facts and information about the local sights. We felt safe at all times and the Captain made great decisions regarding the weather and choppiness of the sea. We were fortunate enough to catch the Swanage air display whilst on our cruise which was a lovely added bonus! We are looking to book another trip again soon.
