I think the upper reaches of the River Hamble are great. Past the M27 Bridge.
Plenty of Marinas in the lower Hamble. Upper only reachable at high tide though. Beaulieu river is nice, again high tide for the upper reaches. Cruise liners to look at in southampton docks if they are in and you like that sort or thing. Poole Harbour/Brownsea island is nice too.
