-----------------------------

 

Sailings from Poole Quay take 20 minutes, crossing on a direct route straight to the Island. The return trip from Brownsea Island takes between 35/45 minutes this includes a cruise around the harbour, tide depending which route you take, Around the Islands, through Blood Alley or a Harbours Cruise along the North Channel. Please be aware that this can change at short notice and even after you have departed from Poole Quay, we try and give our customers this information prior to departure but sometimes things change and we are not able to communicate this to everyone. PLEASE NOTE; We are not responsible for any other ferries operations on their outward or return journey to/from Brownsea Island.  

 

Our Brownsea Island Ferry trips are a must for every lover of camping, nature, walks, picnics and peace and quiet. Managed by the National Trust and with over 500 acres of woodland, Brownsea Island is dramatically located at the entrance to Poole Harbour.

 

It offers you spectacular views across the Purbeck Hills and - thanks to the Dorset WIldlife Trust Nature Reserve - sightings of important populations of sea birds, sika deer and the now rare red squirrel. In 1907 the island was the site of Robert Baden-Powell’s experimental camp, from which the Scouting and Guiding movements have evolved.

 

There are camping and picnic areas, nature trails, a cafe and gift shop for you to explore on Brownsea Island.
