Join us aboard to experience life on the ocean wave

 

Pelican Head On

What can I expect from my sailing experience?

Arriving on board at 9 am, you will join your fellow passengers and crew for a unique sailing experience taking in the stunning Jurassic Coastline, a World Heritage site. Typically your day sail will involve viewing beautiful landmarks from  the unique perspective of the sea. These could include Durdle Door, Lulworth Cove or the stunning coast line of west bay; home of TVs "Broadchurch". Capture these special moments on camera whilst sailing the unique Dorset coast. Join in with the crew or simply sit back, relax and enjoy it. Below is a typical  itinerary from our Day Sail calendar:
