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.

You are more than welcome to bring a picnic and bubbly to celebrate as the sun goes down. We'll leave the harbour at 8.30pm and enjoy a leisurely cruise down the harbour. When we round the pier, we'll either head left down the sea front to Red Cliff (near Bowleaze) or right along Portland Breakwater - this will depend on the skippers decision on the day. We will then loop back to find the perfect spot to anchor and wait for the fireworks to begin at 9.30pm. We should be back at the mooring at around 10pm, depending on boat traffic.

We only take a maximum of 12 passengers aboard our spacious boat. Book a couple of spaces or charter the whole boat so your family can have it to yourself.

If the firework display is cancelled the boat trip will be cancelled.

Can I book the whole boat?

Yes, you can book the whole boat for private charter. Simply book all 12 spaces available on our booking site. If there are less than 12 spaces available, it means another family is already booked on the trip.

Can I bring food and drink?

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. To cancel please click the 'view booking' button in your confirmation email and follow the instructions. It is also possible to transfer your booking to another date up until 72 hours before your trip. No refund will be given for cancellations that occur less than 72 hours before your trip.

Where do we meet you for the trip?

Advance booking is essential. Meet us on the pontoon beneath the e-bike cafe - look out for the flag. 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, then walk down the ramp towards the left hand side of the boat. Please leave plenty of time for parking as it can get busy, especially in the summer. We cannot wait for late passengers and NO refund will be given if you miss your trip. If you cannot see the boat when you arrive it is likely that we are returning from another trip. Please wait for us to arrive.

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. If we're not there when you arrive, we will be on our way back from our previous trip. Please wait for us to return.
