FAQs

Where do your boat trips leave from?

All our bird-watching cruises depart from and return to Poole Quay. We board next to the orange-and-white Greenslade Pleasure Boat kiosk (opposite the Lord Nelson pub).

Do we need to print out our event tickets?

We do not require you to show a printed ticket at any of our events - we will simply use a name list to check you in at the start of our event, or when boarding one of our cruises.

Do I need to pre-book your trips?

Yes, booking is essential. View all our upcoming events

Accessibility: Are your boat trips wheelchair accessible?

Greenslade Pleasure Boats are pleased to accommodate disabled access on the boat where possible. In regards to wheelchair access, please read Greenslade's full access statement

Will our trip be cancelled due to bad weather?

We endeavour to run as many of our trips as possible, and will only cancel a trip due to bad weather if absolutely necessary i.e. it is unsafe for the event to run, or it cannot go ahead due to the the nature of the event. While windy and rainy weather is less appealing to us, they often prove to be very fruitful birding conditions, so can be worthwhile venturing out in. We aim to be in touch via email at least 24 hours before the event is due to run to confirm whether it is going ahead.
