Coach & Tour Operators
90 Minute Vintage Cruise
We offer a 90 minute vintage cruise from Poole Quay, starting early April until late October.
This excursion is tailored for coach tours to make sure your guests have a day to remember in Poole.
Whether you just want to have a leisurely cruise, or take advantage of our partnership with Compton Acres, Dorset Cruises will aim to meet your needs.
Our standard vintage cruise is a 90 minute trip, passing Millionaires Row, Brownsea Castle and the other four islands within Poole Harbour, with a live commentary on everything of interest that we pass and a history of the local area.
Weather permitting, the cruise will also go outside the harbour to view the famous Old Harry Rock and the beginning of the World Heritage Site of the Jurassic Coast.
Dorset Queen, a 1938 vintage motor yacht, has a wonderful upper viewing deck, comfortable lounge, washrooms and a fully licenced bar serving hot drinks as well as a selection of popular beers, local ales and ciders, wines, spirits and soft options.
We load Dorset Queen in the centre of Poole Quay, opposite Poole Arms pub and your coach can simply drop your guests just 2 minutes walk away at the famous Poole Pottery building.
The cruise can be made even more special by adding either Dorset Cream Tea or our Fish & Chips option.
Dorset Cream Tea
Our Dorset Cream Tea is table served in vintage china, with each guest receiving served two freshly baked scones (baked that morning at our marina bakery), strawberry jam and clotted cream, accompanied by Dorset Tea or Barista Style Coffee.
Fish & Chips
Each guest will be table served a piping hot portion of local chip shop Fish & Chips.
(The fish can be substituted for jumbo sausage, chicken pie, pea fritter, etc, if pre-requested).
