Brownsea Island Ferry
I had an entire day to do something in Poole, and since I was near the quay I decided to take a boat tour. There are many located along the quay so just chose one.. they are all pretty much the same price.
I chose the Brownsea Island Ferry.. it involved a tour that runs about an hour and a half.. a open topped boat.. the tour is narrated live by a charming Brit :)
You have the option of getting off on Brownsea Island and walking around, another boat comes to pick you up later. It is an extra charge of about 5 GBP.. I didn't get off so I can't offer any advice..sorry :)
Price of tour = about 10 GBP..
I liked the tour.. it provided an oppurtunity to see the quay from the harbour.. and to get a history of the islands in the area. It was relaxing.. it can be even better on a nice day. When I went it rained.. my luck :)
