Shell Bay Watersports

Shell Bay water sports offer skippered charters aboard a high performance RIB and also Powerboat Training. We are able to offer boarding from the pontoon at our base at Shell Bay by the Sandbanks to Studland chain ferry, or from other locations including Poole Quay and Swanage. Trips from here can have you travelling along The Jurassic Coast, up to the Solent or around Poole Harbour with your family, friends or as a company outing.

Harbour on Studland Beach side;

The centre is open all year round, ideally located between Poole/Bournemouth and Swanage on a family beach 100 yards from the Sandbanks-Studland Ferry. We also have class training rooms.

Power Boating is one of the most exhilarating water sports. At Shell Bay we can help you to enjoy the sea in safety. Our training boat is a Ribeye 785 Sport, fitted with a 250HP Yamaha outboard engine giving a top speed of approximately 50 MPH.

Skippered Charter

We can provide skippered powerboat trips along The Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage Site, past Old Harry Rocks to the puffins at Dancing Ledge for an hour run or for longer trips out to Chapmans Pool, Lulworth Cove

RYA Courses

Take the helm of a high performance powerboat under the supervision of a qualified trainer during your trip along the coast or the RYA powerboat level 2 course, a 2 day course.

We offer a different experience for stag and hen parties, scout, church and school groups by offering trial lesson or water-skiing, wake boarding, water donuts and snorkelling.p>
