My father is disabled and uses a wheelchair. We were looking for something to do with him and decided to try Wareham Boat Hire's wheelie boat. Its like a small landing craft that will take a wheelchair and 6 able bodied people. The wheelchair user can even steer the boat if they are able. Well we had a great couple of hours on the water and got as far as Poole harbour. All safety equipment is included and if you have no previous experience you will be given instruction. It costs £24 an hour but thats pretty good if you have a group. Everything is in that inc fuel. Afterwards Wareham Quay is great for lunch! Definitely recommend this for everyone as there are rowing boats, kayaks, canoes and paddle boards on offer as well. . Matt and Julia who own the business couldn't have been nicer. A great day out.

Thanks for visiting - our Wheelyboat is a great facility. Provided by the Wheelyboat Trust and Countryside Mobility it provides fantastic access to the river for disabled users and those who lack mobility. The boat can be hired on a skippered or self drive basis. We hope to see you again this year, Matt.
