We stayed on board fr 2 nights and loved it, went for a charter on our 2nd day and Mark was great even letting Nathan my son steer, he did not want to leave! the weather was perfect and amazing sunsets with a cold can - could not be better
Thank you Mark for helping Nathan (special needs) to get out of the water and answering all his questions, feel so relaxed and batteries recharged

I highly recommend booking a charter with Mark aboard the Calypso.
We booked a Sunday evening charter for my mums 70th and it was the perfect way to celebrate her birthday. Topped off by a brilliant onboard BBQ prepared by the skipper himself.
We were a party of 9 with varying ages and everyone had a great time. Once out in the open water, all guests were allowed to take a turn on the wheel including the kids which made the experience all the more memorable for them.
The boat is well maintained and spacious and Mark is open, friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. A skipper who clearly loves what he does and enjoys sharing that with his guests.
A perfect way to spend my mum's 70th and far more reasonably priced then a lot of other charter boats around.
Will definitely be heading out on the calypso again.
Back again to the fabulous Calypso. Mark as ever so welcoming .Calypso looked shiny and new.Weather played the game .Lovely sunshine and a fabulous evening charter .Can't recommend this venue enough.Who doesnt love being on a boat by the sea in the with a glass of .Thank you Mark and Steve.
We live locally so have taken guests around the harbour many times from the large boats to a company hire, but this was the best day out ever.
The boat was lovely and in immaculate condition, but the real difference was Mark, the owner. It is obvious that he loves sailing, loves Poole Harbour and knows it very well. He was extremely accommodating to our group and tried to go with our preferences. You never got the feeling that you were being slotted into a routine. He was friendly, warm and you never felt you were being processed 'like a tourist'. Everyone had the best day with no negative points on any front.
Me and a group of friends were down in Poole for the weekend and treated ourselves to a cruise on Calypso on Sunday afternoon. Mark the owner and operator of this cruise was a fantastic host, very knowledgable, very welcoming and very competent in charge of the vessel. We each had a turn at the helm and all of us fell a little in love with the boat (it’s a classy vessel with tons of charm and not some flashy sunseeker). I’d recommend this to anyone and shall be certainly going back for more. Thanks very much for a great afternoon out. All the best, James.
