    Poole Quay
 

Dorset Queen departs Poole Quay every Wednesday (between May & September) at 1:30pm, before taking a scenic cruise around the back of Poole’s five islands.

You will be welcomed aboard with a glass of chilled Prosecco, before being shown to your table to enjoy homemade sandwiches, scones, cakes and Dorset Tea.

After our tour of the islands, favourable wind conditions on the day will also allow us to head out into Poole Bay to take in the breathtaking natural spectacle of World Heritage Site – Jurassic Coast.

On our return cruise to Poole Quay we will pass Millionaire’s Row at Sandbanks, Royal Motor Yacht Club and Parkstone Bay.

There is no specific dress code, but this event is limited to just 22 places each week to ensure exclusivity.

Background Soul & Jazz will play as we cruise, but our captain will explain the local points of interest as we pass them.

Food was great. Along with the entertainment. The staff especially Tara nothing was too much bother, friendly. And helpful giving us info for the rest of our stay in Poole. Highly recommend it.

Went for afternoon tea organised by Dorset Cruises. Had a great time. Welcomed with a glass of proseco and then Dorset tea, sandwiches, scones and cake. Trip around Poole Harbour for hour and a half. Plus this was an historic boat as it was used in WW2 as a “little boat” to rescue our troops at Dunkirk.

Just been for afternoon tea on the Dorset Queen. What a lovely, pleasant afternoon. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole time I was on board. The boat itself is just a lovely historic boat. Extremely clean! More space than I realised there would be. We were not packed in! Shared a table, but the couple were lovely so bonus! The food was plentiful and kept coming!! Extremely fresh sandwiches and thankfully, for me! Plain scones. Beautiful chocolate cake to finish. Tea was delicious but have to admit I had unlimited prosecco so concentrated on that! (Worth the extra pounds believe me!) The crew were so friendly and extremely helpful nothing was too much trouble. Jon the Captain was very knowledgeable about the harbour and history of Poole and the Dorset Queen so lovely to hear all the commentary.
Worth every penny and more! Highly recommended.
A massive thank you to Dorset Cruises. My mum and I just loved the afternoon. Will be seeing you again for the gin cruise now.

Had a very pleasant trip around the gorgeous Poole Harbour on this lovely boat, old and beautifully restored. We had the afternoon tea experience today but there are more options available at different times of day or evening. Perhaps an evening of Jazz or Gin tasting? Anyway we had a super tea, the staff are very friendly and helpful offering more sandwiches etc. Can’t recommend this trip enough.
