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 head out round the cruise ships. 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.

If there are only 1 or 2 cruise ships we will head over to Durdle Door and steam along the beautiful Jurassic Coastline.

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.
