The idea of these sessions is to give you a taste of what you’ll experience during a course. Maybe you’re not sure about boating, maybe you want some time to prepare for a course, maybe you just want to get afloat in the Harbour with a friend or family member trying a new activity. These are relaxed no pressure sessions and you’ll be able to take the helm under the guidance of a qualified instructor.
You can book an individual place and join other people on the boat or bring a friend along and have a dedicated boat & instructor to yourselves. If when you try to book it does not show availability for your ticket type, then it is likely we have sold out already but please do contact us if you’re keen on a particular date as we may be able to run an extra boat.
This particular session is an hour and a half in total and you should anticipate being afloat for approximately an hour. It is anticipated the session will head through the main channel and then return via either the Wych Channel or the North Channel. There may also be the chance to have a look at the Quayside or an alternative route of heading round Brownsea Island. Please note there is a speed limit within the harbour which we will abide by. If you’d like to see something in particular please speak to us in advance to ensure the tide will make it possible. As these sessions are aiming at beginners they will be wind dependent.
Before booking: Please be aware that powerboating does require a certain level of fitness. Please check our website for further details on the boat used to ensure suitability. If either person in the party are under 18 please contact us to discuss.
