Birds of Poole Harbour - Purbeck Puffin Cruise

This summer we’re hosting three brand new Puffin Cruises along the Purbeck coast. Not known for its breeding sea birds, this section of the Jurassic Coast plays host to a small, fragile and secret colony of Puffin’s at Dancing Ledge along with larger numbers of nesting Guillemot and Razorbill. Our three-hour cruise will see us depart from Poole Quay on an evening charter and head out of the harbour mouth, along the coast down to Dancing Ledge in the hope of seeing the Puffins as they settle on the water for their evening preen before they then head up to cliff ledges. Learn all about this dramatic coastline, its birds and its history by joining us on this late spring adventure, then on the way home we’ll hopefully time our arrival back into the harbour just right so that the early summer sunset draws a perfect ending to our trip.

NB:  These trips are weather dependent and if winds are too strong we will not be able to leave the harbour for safety reasons. Although every effort will be made to visit the puffin colony, if the captain decides that the weather permits us from doing so, a Poole Harbour boat tour will be carried out instead and no refunds will be offered. If weather conditions prohibit both a coastal and harbour cruise then a full refund will be offered to guests.
