Take a cruise around the famous Needles on the Isle of Wight.

– Victorian Fort beneath the Needles Battery
– Shipwrecks of the area
– Views of the surrounding Dorset & Hampshire Coastline
– Sea Bird Life
– Needles Rocks & Lighthouse
– Dramatic 400 foot high chalk cliffs
– Progression of coastal erosion form caves to stacks
– Discover the origin of the “Needles”
– Views of Hurst Castle and Fort Albert

Our Review

In our recent trip to the Isle of Wight, we were fortunate to take commentaryride around the Needles in the fast jet boat operated by Needles Pleasure Cruises.

This was great fun as we zoomed out of Alum Bay and around the Needles, taking in the far side of them, and then zipping back around, taking in a few tight turns and wake jumps in the process!

We all returned with big smiles on our faces.

Note that in peak season, you may be queing for a while. You also don’t really get wet, though we had really good conditions when we went.
