An efficient fast service, however gets pricey if you take the family. Also worth noting there only take cash and there are no near by cash machines

You can take any ferry service. We went out with Brownsea Ferry Services and back with Greensleeves Ferry Boats. The return trip had a running commentary. We saw a seal and the boat stopped so we could see it.

Quay Visitors Car Park Strand Street, Poole BH15 1SB Roughly £1 per hour so for £2 for a few hours should do it. Poole has many car parks but that is the safest and nearest.
