Overview

Moonfleet sails daily from Portland Marina in Dorset, out into Weymouth Bay and to remarkable destinations along Dorset's beautiful coastline! All trips depart from and return to Portland Marina - come down, see us and have a look around in between trips. Treat yourself to a day at sea sailing our classic Tallship, Moonfleet! Here’s a real opportunity for both novice and sailor to try your hand at classic tallship sailing around Southern England’s stunning Jurassic Coastline and the fascinating chalk downlands of The Isle of Purbeck and stone cliffs on The Isle of Portland. For those keen to have a go, our crew will provide an opportunity to try most activities that can be fitted into the short voyage, from weighing anchor to hoisting the mainsail - and even taking the helm! Or alternatively If you don’t yet have the confidence to be hands on, you may sit back to watch and enjoy the ride!

Great trip. Beautiful weather but no wind so couldn't "sail". Motored most of the time but Jez and the crew made it an enjoyable non the less. Moored 100ft from Durdle Door for lunch. Stunning scenery.

Nice sail with good people. Worth it if you are looking for a relaxing time on the water for a few hours.
