We did this as part of our Dockyard Pass and thoroughly enjoyed it. What we did not realise was that it also stops near the Spinnaker Tower which you can visit. From there it is only a short walk back to the dockyard. It is...More

...especially if purchased as part of a Historic Dockyard All Attraction Ticket. The crew are friendly and the commentary is pitched perfectly for all ages and all levels of interest. A great way to spend 45 minutes at any time of year.

This is one of the most informative boat trips I have ever taken. The commentary was both informative & entertaining for all knowledge levels. Highlight was seeing the soon to be commssioned Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier

Took a harbour trip aboard Jenny M in November so it wasn't very busy but what value! Very informative dialogue and the trip was 45 mins long. Took us around the dockyard and terminals so we learnt a lot of interesting facts. Staff attentive.

We wanted to see the new aircraft carrier, and this was a great way to see it. The ticket was £8, no discount for OAP, but that would be cheeky to ask for. The boat seats 250 but we had no where near that number...More
