More here, and in various other posts on the forum if you do a search: Poole harbour good idea? .

Essentially loads of places inside the harbour to explore in a small boat. Brownsea Island is lovely and you can go ashore, pleasant trip around the back of Furzey and Green Islands (both private) with various anchorages. Arne is a quiet nature reserve you can explore on foot, nice place to anchor behind Round and Long islands if the wind is right, or put it on the beach. A passage up the River Frome to Wareham is always good (but slow), you can berth alongside at the village quay. Poole Town Quay offers easy access to Poole itself. Or if you fancy going outside the harbour, Studland and Swanage within fairly easy reach, or Bournemouth Pier the other way.

I hope you have a great visit!

Best launching places, Baiter or Cobbs Quay Marina in Holes Bay.

Some places to visit.
Shell Bay Beach
Studland Beach - Knowle Beach, Moiddle Beach or North Beach
Swanage
Old Harry and Ballard Down Cliffs

In Poole Harbour
Brownsea Island
Take a cruise through the back of Poole Harbour and up the wareham river to Wareham (great for an early evening cruise, have fish and chips in wareham, tie up at wareham quay and a couple of fish and chip shops minute walk away or there are 2 or 3 pubs there.

Trip round brownsea island follwing the small channel is also very nice and scenic.

You could also go to arne which is a nature reserve. Deer and birds, small beach etc.

Thank very much Boris - some very useful suggestions. Like the sound of a fish and chip supper with maybe a cider from the pub as well! A lot to fit into 2weeks but we'll be backagain whenever we can.
