About Moonfleet Adventure Sailing
Moonfleet sails daily from Portland Marina in Dorset, out into Weymouth Bay and to remarkable destinations along Dorset's beautiful coastline! All trips depart from and return to Portland Marina - come down, see us and have a look around in between trips. Treat yourself to a day at sea sailing our classic Tallship, Moonfleet! Here’s a real opportunity for both novice and sailor to try your hand at classic tallship sailing around Southern England’s stunning Jurassic Coastline and the fascinating chalk downlands of The Isle of Purbeck and stone cliffs on The Isle of Portland. For those keen to have a go, our crew will provide an opportunity to try most activities that can be fitted into the short voyage, from weighing anchor to hoisting the mainsail - and even taking the helm! Or alternatively If you don’t yet have the confidence to be hands on, you may sit back to watch and enjoy the ride!

The trip on Moonfleet with its knowledgable crew is excellent value for money. Great choice of experiences which will suit all ages. Hoisting the sails and a chance to take the helm, all add to a great time aboard.
