Safety measures

At City Cruises Poole we pride ourselves on our brand values; being fun, passionate, welcoming and expert. Whilst these values have not changed, after conducting risk assessments across all areas of our business, we have introduced a number of health and safety measures to ensure that we can continue to offer our guests a different view of London, Poole and York. In line with Government advice and working alongside local legislative bodies, we have reduced the risk of contact with COVID-19 across all of our locations.

You will be required to check-in using the NHS Track and Trace App at the point of departure. You will see useful information signage as you approach our departure points, as you board and whilst on board.

Currently Government advice requires you to wear a face mask whilst on the departing pier, for travel inside our boats but not on the outer decks. We ask you to check our website just before your travel date where we will publish any changes to this policy.

We look forward to welcoming you on board soon! Thank you and stay safe.
