Snapper Charters are delighted to offer cruise ship boat tours from Weymouth Harbour on a daily basis throughout August. 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?
We typically offer two trips per day – 6pm to 7.30pm and our sunset cruise 7.45pm to 9.15pm. In late August we’re pleased to introduce a new night time cruise ship boat tour experience, which will include a sunset trip as well as the chance to see the boats lit up at night.
These trips are already proving incredibly popular with both visitors and locals and spaces are booking up fast. Booking is essential and we recommend giving plenty of notice to reserve your spot. Our cruise ship tours last 1.5 hours and cost £20 per person (Please note the price is the same for adults and children). Due to the current restrictions we’re only able to take a maximum of 5 passengers unless you’re from the same household.
If you would like to book a cruise ship tour please contact skipper, Luke directly. We are at sea all day and it can be tricky to take phone calls, therefore we kindly ask you to text or email in the first instance and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
