Poole Harbour is well worth a visit.

Easest way to get there is straight past the needles. Once you’re clear of the channel head west till you see Old Harry, keep a look about 2O’clock Green you see the start of the main channel. The channel heads more or less North straight in Poole harbour.

Do check the chart your as the harbour has unusual tides, but the main channel in the harbour is fine at all states. If you see the sea gulls standing around ( I am not joking!) check your course !

At this time of year there is 10kt speed limit in the harbour and for some of the main approach channel.

As for what to see the:

South Beach Studland Bay, possible to anchor up and take a dingy or shore an visit the pub the Bankers Arms (?)

North Beach Studland Bay – famous for nudists if you are that way inclined ! Also has a national trust ice van, well did last year.

Entering the harbour (10kts), be careful of the chain ferry, given it wide birth, a white flashing strobe (+ black ball) means it is about to move. Also the cars get on or off is a good indication you are safe to pass. Once past the chain ferry Brownsea Island is directly ahead, the main channel is well marked and heads of round to starboard.

You could take the north channel by hanging a right after you pass hurst. Watch out for lobster pots off Christchurch ledge though!

In the harbour there are loads of anchorages to explore but nearly all the islands are private so landing is forbidden (and there isn't anything there anyway!). There is a new marina up by Poole Quay which would be good to stop at, but I don't know what it is like cos I haven't been there since its been built.

Cheers

Tim

As for what to see the 2:

There is a fueling barge just of the main channel towards, Brownsea Island, I have used it but it can be a difficult to get on and off as it quite high.

They is also fuel at Satlerns and Cobbs Quay, (Ring Cobbs as they do run out sometimes).

Definitely worth following the main channel as far as the ferry docks then turn right and heading pass the old town quay. Plenty of kiosks selling food. If Dolphin marina are not bush they sometime let you moor up for a few minutes, to get to the town quay. If they direct you round the back think twice if your rib is large as it is quiet narrow.

Also worth following the main channel up the harbour, towards the SBS base, just before it is a small marina Lake Yard, you can get good food here, but I am not sure if you have to be a member.

It is possible to get all the way to Wareham, given a bit of tide. Worth head up to the top of the harbour as it has large nature reserve as is quite beautiful and quiet.

You can also get right around Brownsea Island again with a little tide.

It is world getting a chart !
