Sorry not a travel expert but looked good for the price especially if you're near the area.

Hop aboard a boat in Poole for a leisurely cruise around Europe’s largest natural harbour, and take in the seaside sights, wildlife and scenery with someone special by your side with this Poole Harbour and Islands Cruise for Two.

With a human history dating back to 295 BC, Poole Harbour has long been an important part of Britain, from Iron Age exploration and settlement through to Roman invasion, new world trading and even the formation of the Scouting movement on Brownsea Island. As you drift along on your cruise through the shallow waters your skipper for the day will fill you in on the sights and surroundings that you’ll see from either the open-air top deck or the enclosed lower deck, so keep your camera close if you want to capture the intriguing scenery as it passes by.

There’s famous houses to spot at Sandbanks, beautiful beaches and historic Poole bays, a castle and Lord Baden-Powell’s original campsite to see as you pass by Brownsea, and keep your eyes peeled for local fauna who might pop their heads up to say hello!

What happens on the day?

On arrival at Poole Quay you’ll head for the red and white City Cruises kiosk to swap your vouchers for Cruise tickets.

The staff at the kiosk will let you know when the next departures are so you can plan your time in Poole, and when it’s time to head off you’ll clamber aboard the boat, take a seat above or below deck, then settle in for an informative and intriguing 1 hour 15 minute cruise around Poole Harbour and Brownsea Island.

Europe’s largest natural harbour



It's a weird claim-to-fame, its also inaccurate. Its not even the largest in Britain

I thought Brest in France was Europes largest natural harbour!!

when it is busy you cannot exchange vouchers for tickets for same day so could be a wasted trip if looking to come to Poole just for this

Just bought one. Thanks

Read it as Pearl Harbour and Islands Cruise - would have been a hot deal!

Wow this is much cheaper than the Sydney to Southampton all inclusive fly-cruise I was going to book. Just saved myself £7868.63!

Who is that quote with please ? ( serious I've been looking for cruise/fly to Oz )

TCB tracked at 99p.

Great price, well worth it for that money. Not sure about the famous houses to spot at Sandbanks, Harry Rednapp has a house there, but it's hardly a famous house, as for the others, probably random businessman and Russians..

the land at the front is some of the most expensive real estate in the world
