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!

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 😃

This trip was such great value...90 minutes of fascinating view of the famous jurassic coast, with a bit of history thrown in, and the most exciting, fastest and fun boat you can ride on. My family loved it...we'll go again!

Bit more expensive than the other boat trips but you get to see a lot more on this high speed trip which stops at all,the sights out as far as Swanage

Thanks for your review, the vast majority of our customers think our prices offer excellent value for money as the trip is a 90 minute, 24 mile round trip out as far as Dancing Ledges. Regards Amanda More

We are boating enthusiasts so wanted to get on the water. Really enjoyed our trip with Poole sea safaris. Very good boat, comprehensive safety brief prior to departure. Really enjoyed our 90 minute trip, great views and though not technically a thrill rides we did do some high speed turns which made the whole crew smile! Well worthwhile
