We are FULLY BOOKED for September. The only remaining availability we have is for whole day fishing trips.

Snapper Charters are delighted to offer cruise ship boat tours from Weymouth Harbour on a daily basis throughout August and September (or whenever the cruise ships leave!). These popular sightseeing trips provide an unbeatable view of the magnificent cruise liners that are currently anchored in Weymouth Bay. In what is undoubtedly a once in a life time experience, we get an up-close look at these gigantic vessels from all sides. Our cruise ship tours are a fantastic evening activity for all the family and a unique thing to during your holiday in Weymouth.

What do our cruise ship boat tours involve?

From our mooring outside Bennetts fish and chips in Weymouth harbour we take a gentle steam out of the harbour. From the comfort of our large and spacious vessel you can admire the beauty of our historic harbourside before we emerge into the bay. After a leisurely cruise out to the vessels, we will visit each cruise ship in turn. Whilst maintaining a safe distance we steam around each ship, providing plenty of photo opportunities. The cruise ships come and go every couple of days as they return to Southampton for supplies and fuel. This means the vessels and number of vessels change regularly. Over the course of the last few months we have had ships from P&O, Tui, Carnival and Cunard’s Queen Mary 2 and Queen Victoria.

Sometimes, we’re extremely lucky to spot some of our resident dolphins during our trips much to the delight of our passengers on board. It’s an absolute privilege to see these beautiful creatures playing next to the ships and riding beneath our bow.

How do I book a cruise ship boat tour with Snapper Charters?

Trip times vary, however our cruise ship boat tours typically go in the evening, so that you can enjoy the sunset as well as the chance to see the boats lit up at night.

These trips are proving incredibly popular with both visitors and locals, so please give as much notice as possible. Our cruise ship tours last 1.5 hours. Please note we are now only accepting whole boat bookings only (£200 max of 12 passengers). We are unable to accommodate individual spaces.

If you would like to book a cruise ship tour please contact skipper, Luke directly. We are at sea all day and evening and it can be tricky to take phone calls, therefore we kindly ask you to text or email only. Due to the large number of booking requests we are currently receiving we are not able to respond to same day enquiries. Please bear with us during this busy time.

We look forward to welcoming you aboard Snapper Charters soon for a memorable boat trip from Weymouth. You can find out more about the other fishing and sightseeing trips we offer on our website.
