Do you enjoy the thrill of all things watersports and the excitement of playing in the surf? Well if that’s the case then Dorset is certainly a destination you should consider.
Dorset’s fabulous coastline means that we have a wealth of incredible activities to try all along our famous county.
From testing your metal with a coasteering expedition or taking to the waves on a high speed RIB or Jet Ski there is plenty for you to experience!
If settling back and relaxing with a more leisurely cruise along the Jurassic Coast is more your thing we hear you. Sit back and relax while you take in the wonderful scenery on board one of our chartered tour boats.
Or how about going back in time to Dorset’s smuggler past and take to the high seas on board a classic tall ship? Get to grips with the running of the ship and play an active role as part of the crew!
Many of our outdoor adventure providers offer some great ways to get out on the waves. Why not try stand up paddle boarding or sea kayaking and get up close and personal with parts of the coastline not always seen by visitors.
Don’t forget there is plenty of fun to be had below the waves as well. Enjoy a snorkelling or diving session with a fully train instructor and discover a whole new world under the waves.
Details of all of our watersports providers can be found within the listing below. Please remember to mention the Visit Dorset website when booking your experience.
