Welcome to Poole Boat Hire - Self-drive boats with no experience necessary. Explore Poole Harbour's 10,000 sq. Acres of water. Find total peace and tranquillity by taking a trip around the islands. You can also anchor up and visit our great beaches for a swim. Check out Brownsea Island; Shipstal Point; Bramble Bush Bay or Round Islands pier where you'll find seals! Pack a picnic or wade in to Shell Bay Beach Bar. You could take a slow trip up the river to Wareham, moor up for a drink or have an ice cream on the quay. Maximum of 6 persons per boat, dogs are welcome too, it doesn't matter whether you're an old sea dog or have never boated before we will complete a handover before your time on the water begins...

Great service, great boat with improved Navigation aid - lovely people. We hired a boat to go to one of the islands in the harbour, and were offered 'taxi' service if the weather was rough - what more can you ask for.

Had an absolutely brilliant time on our boat sailing up to Wareham and then stopping on a quiet part of the river to have our picnic. A lovely friendly service with very detailed instruction. Highly recommended. Allen and Caron Rose.
