ALL ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE

Two Hour Tallship Sailing Experience in Dorset

Join the crew of a majestic tallship, and set sail on a two-hour trip off Dorset's Jurassic Coast.

Ahoy there! Take to the high seas aboard an authentic tall-ship during this traditional sailing experience, in Dorset. Cast off from Portland Marina, and join the crew for a two-hour voyage around Southern England’s scenic Jurassic coastline.

Your ship is a classic gaff-rigged cutter, built by the Dutch in 1930. Upon arrival, the proud sight of her is sure to impress keen sailors and landlubbers alike. You’ll climb aboard and begin a journey that will take in Weymouth Bay and Portland Harbour Forts. Along the way, you’ll have a chance to try your hand at various onboard duties – like weighing anchor, hoisting the mainsail, and even taking the helm! Your knowledgeable crew will do their best to ensure you make the most of the opportunity, and leave with a truer understanding of the wind’s awesome power. If that all sounds a bit too much like hard work though – fret not – you’re welcome to just sit back and savour the sea air.

The Two-Hour Tallship Sailing Experience, in Dorset, will delight budding seafarers of all ages, and a voucher makes an unforgettable gift for a loved one, or first mate.

Hands on sailing

Great time helping hoist up the sails, being given a guided commentary around the harbour and I even had a go at the healm. Fab team running the ship, friendly and helpful. Thanks so much!

Fantastic and the crew were so helpful and friendly, there was a little girl on the trip and they were great with her, they let her steer and told her how to navigate.

This was the perfect end to our holiday a trip down memory lane as we have had our own yachts but not as big as this one it was fun to take part and the crew were very friendly and welcoming they were so kind to the youngest passenger she steered most of the journey and had great fun an amazing experience for her while the rest of us took in the scenery and sun. Thanks for a great time we will definitely look you up again when we are in Devon again ?
