Find total peace and tranquility by taking a trip around the islands. You can also anchor up and visit our great beaches for a swim. Check out Brownsea Island; Shipstal Point; Bramble Bush Bay or the pier at Round Island where you’ll find seals! Pack a picnic or wade in to Shell Bay Beach Bar for a drink.

You could take a slow trip up the river to Wareham and moor up for a drink or an ice cream on the quay. Dogs are welcome too! It doesn’t matter whether you’re an old sea dog, or have never boated before, we will complete a full safety briefing before your time on the water begins.
