Had a 2 hr kayak paddle today with my friend towards Poole harbour, absolutely brillient day.

Easy to find, easy to book, staff were very helpful, polite and friendly. Explained all we needed to know and away we went. Quite a choice of various vessels, happy to have sit on kayaks.
Stopped for lunch 1/2 way, so peaceful and relaxing.

Paddling against the tide obviously takes slightly longer and a bit more effort needed than going with it, but way easier than in the open sea.

Plan to do it again shortly for my daughters birthday, was so impressed.

Glorious sunshine and a truly accessible and very stable "wheelyboat" (I could drive it from my wheelchair) enabled us very happily to while away a couple of hours pootling up the River Frome to Poole harbour and to travel among peaceful rushes the other way too. Very helpful staff. Great way to clear some cobwebs :)

We had most of the morning on the river and took a packed lunch with us. We moored up and enjoyed the peace and tranquility of the river and watched the various wildlife. The owners of the boat hire are very friendly and helpful. There are extremely clean well kept toilets just across the road and various eating places to choose from if you choose to eat out.

Hired a motorboat with my partner this morning 1 hour was plenty for us, and must say was lots of fun, the river was very pretty we saw a few voles in the river plus an array of birds, would thoroughly recommend it!!

Dealing with Wareham Boat Hire is a pleasure. We booked in advance for four boats and arrived to find them ready and waiting. We paddled down the river to Poole and just out into the harbour - just under two hours. We had a picnic lunch on a beach and then had a slightly more challenging paddle back! In all just under five hours of fun and a sense of achievement thrown in.
It helped that it was sunny, but I expect the staff are always helpful.
Thank you.
