Take a posh ride over the harbour waves around Portsmouth dockyard with a close up view of Her Majesty's ships. A most enjoyable ride with full commentary.

For a visitor to the City, there are a number of special attractions such as the historic ships in the National Museum, The Spinnaker etc., but for visitors of all ages, the Harbour Tour takes a lot of beating. We retook the tour last week...More
