Good value, relaxing trip around the harbour. Great way to give legs a rest after walking round dockyard and Gunwharf Quay. Informative.

Very enjoyable. Captain tour information very informative. It was nice to see the Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier upclose after the recent TV programme. As it was a beautiful sunny day upper deck was crowded but still easy to see everything.

This was our first stop of the day. Got on the 11.15 tour and being a week day it was lovely and quiet. We were taken out to see the sights and warships. The captain was very knowledgeable and pointed out all the local attractions....More

We did the harbour tour twice as the first time was quite foggy, so we went again on a lovely sunny day - the 'commentary' was a bit different on each tour, so we learnt some different things each trip which was an added bonus....More

We did this as part of our Dockyard Pass and thoroughly enjoyed it. What we did not realise was that it also stops near the Spinnaker Tower which you can visit. From there it is only a short walk back to the dockyard. It is...More

...especially if purchased as part of a Historic Dockyard All Attraction Ticket. The crew are friendly and the commentary is pitched perfectly for all ages and all levels of interest. A great way to spend 45 minutes at any time of year.

This is one of the most informative boat trips I have ever taken. The commentary was both informative & entertaining for all knowledge levels. Highlight was seeing the soon to be commssioned Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier
