Weymouth Firework Boat Trip
Escape the crowds of Weymouth beach to watch the August firework display from the sea. Enjoy the experience of seeing the fantastic display from a unique viewpoint with Weymouth beach and seafront as a backdrop.
We'll steam down Weymouth's historic harbour before turning into the bay. We'll then find the perfect spot to anchor and take in the display.

What is your cancellation policy?
If Luke, the Owner/Skipper of Snapper Charters deems the weather unsuitable for a Weymouth Fireworks Boat Trip or the minimum passenger number has not been met the trip will be cancelled with as much prior notice as possible. You will usually be contacted the evening before when we have access to the latest weather report. You will be contacted on the phone number/email address provided at the time of booking to try and arrange alternate dates. If we are unable to agree upon a mutually suitable date and transfer your booking, you will receive a cancellation email (please keep an eye on your junk mail folder) and full refund of any money paid. If you (the customer) would like to cancel a Isle of Weymouth Fireworks Boat Trip a full refund will be given up until 72 hours prior to the trip commencing.

Where do we meet you for the trip
Advance booking is essential. Meet us on the pontoon outside Bennetts Fish and Chip shop. Arrive 15 minutes prior to departure. We kindly ask you to wait on the harbour wall until we've finished cleaning the boat/unloading passengers. Please leave plenty of time for parking as it can get busy, especially in the summer. Address: Trinity Road Weymouth Dorset DT4 8TJ Owner/skipper Luke: 07833492948
What happens if we're running late?
Please make every effort to arrive 15 minutes early and ensure you are in the right place and ready to go. We run all of our trips back to back, so it's essential that we leave on time. If you arrive more than 5 minutes late, we are afraid the boat will depart without you and NO refund will be given. We do not want to cut the trip short for the people who have made it there on time.
