H2O Powerboat Experience
At H2O Powerboat Experience we offer a wide range of powerboat services from our base in Christchurch, Dorset.
Situated with Bournemouth and Poole just to our West and the Solent just to our East, we have some of the world's best boating areas on our doorstep.
Whether it's private hire of a boat and skipper to take you and your guests to the Isle of Wight, a trip from Christchurch Quay or around the bay, H2O can offer you a fantastic experience you will never forget.
Our MCA Coded and Local Authority Licenced RIBs (Rigid Inflatable Boat) take a maximum of 9 passengers for an amazing trip. We leave the historic Christchurch Quay and head into the harbour. As we head through the harbour, your skipper will give you a guided tour of all of the interesting aspects of this beautiful area including the horses on Stanpit Marsh, Hengistbury Head and smuggling history of Christchurch.
