Customer Review

“I was looking for a surprise fun day out for my family and found this company. Booked a motor boat for three hours and we all loved it to the extent that we all sang “A life on the ocean wave” all day and still are. The day started with a quick briefing on the rules of the waterway and the use of the engine, the people who run the place are lovely and made us feel welcome. We had three hours and were advised to head up river first which is pretty and take about half an hour before going back and under the bridge towards the busier water towards Poole Harbour… great advise. 

We took a little picnic to eat on board and the three of us haven’t laughed so much in a long time… we found the private boat owners to be friendly towards us too. 

To summarise… the owners were lovely, the boat clean and reliable, the setting beautiful, the fun we had was second to none. I’d recommend this to anybody. 

We’ll be going back. Oooh a life on the ocean wave!

Thank you Wareham Boat Hire for a wonderful family memory”.
