City Cruises live for being on the water, setting sail regularly every day from Poole Quay and Swanage Pier. Explore Dorset’s sights like you’ve never seen them before.

Enjoy a tasty snack or an alcoholic beverage as you sail through Europe’s largest natural harbour and the eastern tip of the Jurassic coast. You could also take a step back in time on one of their cruises to Swanage and a steam train ride to the never conquered 11th century Corfe Castle.

They also run regular evening cruises throughout the summer months from birdwatching cruises to themed evenings with live entertainment and food on board. A perfect way to wind down after a long day or catch up with friends and family.

City Curises know how to make your trip extra ordinary. Their boats offer panoramic views of Poole harbour, open air decks, fully licensed bars and a live commentary from the Captain, giving you a new perspective on our amazing town’s story.

Whatever your idea of fun, get it on board an award winning trip with City Cruise Poole. You can find out all of their trips, times and prices on their website.

Please note: All of our cruises are subject to weather, tide and circumstances permitting, City Cruises also do not disembark at Brownsea Island.
