City Cruises Poole


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

You won’t just be watching the sights unfold, you can enjoy a tasty snack or an alcoholic beverage as you sail through Poole Harbour and the start of the Jurassic Coast. You could also take a step back in time and enjoy a steam train ride from Swanage to see the ruins of Corfe Castle. 

We know how to make your trip extraordinary. Our boats offer panoramic views, an open air deck even a bar where you can relax. With live commentary on the sights, landmarks and history from our Captain, you’ll get a new perspective on our amazing city’s story.
