Based out of Poole, Dorset, City Cruises makes it possible for you to celebrate your wedding out in the sea. It is part of the Hornblower Group, which has nearly a 100-year history of marine hospitality. It’s not every day you can boast about exchanging vows while cruising around Poole Harbour and the Jurassic Coastline.

City Cruises is available for all special occasions, including weddings and evening receptions. Their largest vessel can accommodate up to 60 people for a comitment ceremony and 120 for the reception. The boat has a lower saloon, a licensed bar, an upper deck for dancing, and an outer deck too. Departing from Poole Quay, you will sail past Brownsea Island, Studland Bay, then head along The Jurassic Coast, past Old Harry Rocks, towards the Victorian town of Swanage. On your return, you will sail towards Poole Bay and Sandbanks Peninsula and take in views of Millionaire's Row.

Services Offered

The dedicated team at City Cruises can help plan your special day from start to finish and ensure you have the day of your dreams.
