Highly recommend. Good value for money and a fantastic way to see the dorset coast. Bring warm top unless a really perfect summer day and camera.

Just to save you time and phone calls that are not answered, this unfortunately has closed. Nearest sea safari that I know of is Southampton Seadogz and I got a Groupon half price voucher

Took the Rib boat outing down the Jurrasic Coast, long trip full of adrenaline for our teenagers. There was enough spray/water to impress the teenagers too. Commentary was informative. Worth the money.

I was looking for a boat trip from Poole, I'm so glad I came across the sea safari trip, it was a exhilarating and informative trip along a stretch of beautiful coastline. A really enjoyable 90 minutes.

What a fantastic way to spend an afternoon, The trip was very enjoyable and very informative. I would recommend this to anyone. It's a shame the sea was so calm I was looking forward to catching some air on the waves though!

Staff great, boat safe and stable, very good value for money and if you've not been on a fast RIB before it's a real treat. Top tip ! Get the front 2 seats ! Sat behind a fat chap and it was like an eclipse of the sun 😊 but he shielded me from the wind so not all bad........... More

We had a fantastic trip along the Jurassic Coast. The sea conditions were perfect and views all the way along were stunning. We know this area extremely well having lived in the area all my life but this gave us the opportunity to see the coast from a different angle. The staff were extremely friendly. All equipment was clean and... More

Brillant trip with Poole Sea Safari around the Jurassic Coast. We didnt see dolphins but still worthwhile. Slightly expensive but ok for couples. Good opportunities for photos. Staff friendly.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. As the dolphins are wild animals with an extensive territorial range, sightings are very unpredictable. However, the coastline, geology and history are always there. Regards Amanda More

If there is one thing you simply must do when visiting Poole, it's the Sea Safari. (The only exclusions are pregnant women, very young children and anyone with back or health problems.) The boat is a RIB (rigid inflatable) so it flies across the water and can turn on a sixpence - handy for exploring the Jurassic coastline and caves... More

Fantastic trip out, kids all loved it (particularly our daughter when they played Happy Birthday for her!) Felt very safe at all times and would definitely recommend it (although some bottom padding is recommended!) Hope to do it again one day 😃
