Overview

We have a range of electric ships in a sheltered pool within the Historic Dockyard. Each ship will take up to 5 people, and they are all huge fun to drive! No entrance ticket to the Dockyard is required for entry to the Miniport. Suitable for the whole family. For 2014 we have ships including battleships, a tug, a lifeboat and a police boat. We build all the ships ourselves.

Great time. Had almost 45 mins on the boat and free rein of the area. Great obstacles I would have stayed on longer if not for my son finally getting bored... probably cause I started to practice reverse sailing. Great staff.

We had so much fun at the Mini Port this weekend. The staff were really friendly and extremely well organised. My boys absolutely loved it and can't wait to go back again. Can't recommend this place enough for all the family!

My 6yr old grandson had been on the boats before and so when he knew we were visiting the dockyard again this was on his "to do" list. There's never really a queue and sufficient boats are available if there is - price is reasonable...More

We found this via TripAdvisor (i'm sure we plan our lives around here!). It was a very pleasant activity and good value for money. We had a very brief stop off purely to visit this, and we enjoyed it as much as the kids did....More

Stopped at Gunwharf Quays for a few hours and found this place. Great fun. Were there when it first opened at 1100 so got straight on and had nearly 30 minutes for just £9.50. Nice location and plenty to do in the area.

We stopped here after having lunch and our girls had loads of fun steering the boat round. They even got to wear captain hats. I think it's a fun addition to the quay and it's not exactly expensive especially as there's no time limit to...More
