What a brilliant way of spending 90mins in Poole at the end of August. My wife and I had a lovely lunch overlooking where Poole Sea Safari are based on the quayside. Upon arriving, Josh greeted us and chatted away while waiting for everyone else arrive for the trip. Once everyone had arrived, we were introduced to Rick the skipper... More

Easily the best part of my hen do! Poole Sea Safari were so helpful and friendly from the start, it made it very easy to book and organise for a large group. We chose to go for a 90 minute tour which came to just over £30 per person and you get much more than you pay for! We were... More

Myself and my daughter had a lovely trip out in September. The staff were lovely, friendly and very helpful. As Poole residents we see the coast from the land frequently, was so interesting to see from the other side. The little chats were informative and funny. Thank you so much for your welcome and your assistance. Will definitely join you... More

I did ask if there would be opportunity to... More

I went on a couple of year back when it was a calm sunny day and loved it. Had so much fun. This is how a safari should should be. I also went again when it was rainy and still loved it. Feel safe and secure and they give great instructions on what to do. This is the best attraction... More

This is a superb trip, well worth the money. A excellent way to see the fabulous Jurassic coast. The guys on the boat and shoreside were brilliant and so informative. This trip is a must if you are in the area. Kids absolutely loved the speed of the boat and the fancy tricks on the return journey. Thanks guys
