Trust Pilot Reviews

This Christmas, Santa has swapped his sleigh for a boat and you will be able to meet him in Poole! Wrap up warm and enjoy a 1 ¼ hour circular cruise from Poole Quay to see the best of Poole Harbour, including the sparkly Christmas lights along the Quay. Children will enjoy plenty of fun, including a magic show and balloon modelling. Santa will of course make a special appearance and present each child with a gift.

To keep rumbly tums at bay, a soft drink and biscuit are included for children and a glass of mulled wine with a mince pie for the adults!
