  • Had an absolutely brilliant time on our boat sailing up to Wareham and then stopping on a quiet part of the river to have our picnic. A lovely friendly service with very detailed instruction. Highly r...  more »
  • Amazingly easy, so friendly and excellent service! Boat hires are a funny area with some boats being so bad you dont want to go near them covered in stickers and people dont like you pottering about, ...  more »
  • We took a boat for the day and it proved to be a real treat. The sheltered waters of the Harbour meant we could just enjoy an easy day with a picnic in a coolbox while we anchored in a secluded spot. ...  more »

  • Terrible service. Booked boat at midday the day before as a half term treat. Had email confirmation immediately. Arrived ten minutes early at 0950, tried calling as no one around. No answer. Left an answerphone message. Tried calling over the course of the next 40 minutes. No replies. As we were leaving, finally got through! Hurrah. Was told that there was a booking system mistake and that Iā€™d get a call back. By this time the two small boys were excited again, having waited in a grotty car park for the best part of an hour. 10 minutes later, get a call saying that the owner could get to us, but would be another 15 minutes. 90 minutes of a school holiday wasted with very disappointed kids. Just wondered why our first 8 phone calls went unanswered?
  • What a wonderful experience on a sound boat well equipped for the bay! Esther was super kind, gentle, very friendly and ready to assist if and when needed. We stopped at Shell bay for lunch and headed out to Round Island to see the Seals. Then home. An all around perfect little trip in the right weather. Thankyou for being so accommodating. Just fab!! šŸ–’ā¤
  • Perfect self drive motor boats for cruising Poole Harbour. We hired a boat from here last year and again this year for me and my father.
  • Amazing day out with my family today. Loved every second and the staff couldn't have been more polite and helpful! Definitely coming back again!
  • We had a great time, good day, great owners, fab experience highly recommended, we boated around the islands including brownnsea, visited the seals, had a swim in a calm water and had lunch atthe shell bay diner , great ! To the muppet who left a negative review here, he clearly didnt pay attention during the very important briefing, I read on another review site that due to his ignorance, he significantly damaged the prop on the sea bed and no doubt worried the other harbour users with his antics, came back and was shown the significant damage, then like a chicken posted a poor review rather then let the owners sort him out at the time like a man. Great day of few hours out , make sure you take in the do's & dont's pick a nice day and you will have a wonderful day, perhaps take a swan past those millionair houses as we did and annoy them a bit going back n forth lol, including Mrs Rednaps

Where to stay in Poole

Consider renting an apartment inside a redeveloped warehouse in Poole's quay. This area is full of attractions and views over the port, where boats leave for cruises to nearby islands. The town center and the harbor are near each other, and lodging is available in both areas.
