    The cruise itself was good. However, I didn’t realise basically 2 one way journeys to and from Swanage. With a 20 min stop to let people offf and on. If so would have booked one to get off and speared a few hours there. I thought would be Pertractor shape. Commentary was good both ways - not repeated.

    Nice ride, but pretty slow


    10 Aug 2018

    Absolutely loved it, from the slow cruising speed, interesting harbour and dramatic coastline, staff commentary and historic facts.

    ★★★★★

    This was a beautiful trip on a clean boat and not overcrowded. Staff very courteous too. The scenery is breathtaking and I just don't know why we haven't done this before. An absolute joy not to be missed.

    Excellent boat trip. Genuinely nice guy commentating, threw in a couple of jokes which made for a good atmosphere on the boat. Just what you want when you're relaxing on holiday. Who wants some stuffy overly serious commentary? Don't go thinking 2 hrs is too long, there's a break in the middle at Swanage Pier and it was just right

    Great experience, captain and crew were great and the weather was fantastic. Commentary was also amazing. Thanks

    Boat was there, crew were there, booking details all tallied and sun shone! Sunshine was God's doing, not theirs, but thanks to all concerned at City Cruises for a lovely day out enjoying the sunshine! Will do it again another time!

    13 Jun 2018

    ★★★★

    We specifically chose the 1:00pm sailing so we could have a few minutes ashore in Swanage. We were upset that the cruise departed Poole over 25 minutes late after the crew we chatting to friends & family on the Quay. This meant a hurried turnaround at Swanage and a shortened cruise - disappointing! Otherwise it was great!
