It was on-time and a very pleasant boat ride. Our "skipper" did an excellent commentary with some lighthearted humour. The only negative comment is that the kiosk is now blue and not red (been this way for a year or so they say) and that we did not need to exchange our vouchers. All they did was view the QR codes visually on my phone. Overall - very happy.

My husband took our 8 year old grandchild who was really excited and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. He caught a fish which was returned to the deep. Then a fellow fisherman offered him a dab to take home. It was duly cooked on a bbq and tasted delicious. A great experience.

Really enjoyed this tour, it got us to parts of Bournemouth that would we would of missed and at a very reasonable price. Lots of room aboard and just the right amount of information. The drivers are lovely and very helpful!

A lovely way to see around Poole harbour with the added bonus of a flyby from the red arrows. A throughly enjoyable experience!
