A perfect 'staycation' gift for something great to look forward to next summer!
Moonfleet sails daily from Portland Marina in Dorset, out into Weymouth Bay and to remarkable destinations along Dorset's beautiful coastline!
All boat trips depart from and return to Portland Marina - come down, see us and have a look around in between excursions. Treat yourself to a maritime adventure sailing our classic Tall Ship, Moonfleet!
Here’s a real opportunity for both novice and sailor to try your hand at classic Tall Ship 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!
We only provide catering by prior arrangement but, if it gets a little chilly, we’ll break out the biscuit barrel and put the kettle on the stove. Tea and coffee for the crew – that means you!
If your voyage is more than a couple of hours, we recommend you order a packed lunch with us when you book. Alternatively you're welcome to bring your own food and drinks.
Also, regardless of the weather forecast, bring something warm and dry to wear. We’re not sailing into rough seas, but we are putting to sea!
To find out where we're off to on a day of your choosing just click on the 'Book My Trip' tab to see our planned voyage for that day, or check out our Facebook and Twitter for the latest information.
