Your safety and that of other water users when afloat is paramount. In the UK you don’t need any qualifications or experience to hire or own a boat so we spend time with you at the start of your hire to ensure that you understand how to helm the craft safely and can apply the ‘rules of the road’ properly.

Our safety brief covers: Lifejackets; safety equipment; where to go in the harbour; the ‘collision regulations’ and how to deal with problems afloat. We can also supply life jackets for your dog(s) as he/she/they are most welcome to join you on-board.

We then come afloat with you to ensure that you are happy with how the boat handles. Once we have covered the briefing and spent time afloat with you if you and we are happy we set you free! Throughout the hire we are always available on the end of a phone if needed and our safety boat and crew is available at all times if needed.

Afloat you have a pack that includes a Boat Manual, Charts of Poole Harbour and satellite images of the harbour too. Everything you need for a great and safe day out.
