Really good way to spend an hour in Poole but make sure you are wearing warm clothes if out of season. Boat calls at Brownsea Island, then continues around the island back to the port. Good, informative commentary from the skipper & trip lasts just one hour.

We went to Brownsea Island and then around the small islands in Poole Harbour. There was a commentary and all was interesting

For just over £10 per person you get taken to Brownsea Island. What we hadn't realised was that on the way back you get taken all around the island and have all the interesting history and sites explained to you. Well worth it!

On holiday at Rockley Park Caravan. My Dad wanted a trip on the Ferry for his birthday. A lovely afternoon trip good value for a family of 7. The captains commentary was made it very interesting. The weather stayed dry 👍👍. Thank you

Easy to purchase tickets at booth, efficient time keeping both ways and very friendly staff. The return trip was enjoyed immensely as it included a bit of an informative cruise around the 5 Poole harbour islands (and also a sight seeing visit of the RICH ELITE sandbanks mobs properties).

A very nice trip with a surprise tour around the five islands in Poole harbour that I never knew existed. Well worth it.
