An unbeakable Birdwatching Cruise with City Cruises

Beat the January blues and channel your inner David Attenborough with City Cruises’ quacking Winter Birdwatching Cruise, new for 2017

Brownsea Island


Following the success of the Summer Birdwatching Cruise, which saw passengers enjoy sightings of Puffins, Guillemots and Kittiwakes, guests will be taken on England’s coastal answer to the safari to spot up to 15,000 wintering birds, including the Grebe and the Red-breasted Merganser.

The two hour cruise welcomes professional and amateur twitchers alike to enjoy stunning views of the harbour and views of over 300 rarely seen species. On-board commentary is available throughout to point birdwatchers in the right direction, whilst teaching passengers about the colourful birds soaring above them.

The cruise will sail from Poole Quay, through the harbour and towards Brownsea Island Lagoon; home for thousands of birds every winter who arrive to lay their eggs and rear their offspring. Those with an eagle eye may even catch a glimpse of the mischievous Common or Grey seals that can be seen bobbing off the shore.

It may be winter, and wrapping up warm is essential, but bracing the cold is worth it for an unbeatable brush with nature.


Adult (17+): From £14.85

Child (5-16): From £7.43

Cruise departs on various dates throughout January – March 2017.
