A visit to Portsmouth is not complete without taking a leisurely, sight-seeing cruise on the Spirit of Portsmouth. We operate a range of cruises, which take in some of the most scenic locations in and around the Solent. Whether it's a tour of the harbour, taking in the wealth of Portsmouth's Naval Heritage, a trip across the Solent to spend a day in Cowes or a cruise to the picturesque Beaulieu River, the Spirit of Portsmouth is the perfect way to spend the day.
Take in the sights and sounds of our Hamble River cruise, made famous by the BBC TV series, Howard's Way. Book early for our five hour cruise to Southampton Docks to see the departure of Cunard's newest ocean liner, Queen Mary II. Enjoy the scenery and relax with a cream tea or basket meal on a six hour cruise to Southampton Water, cruising past the Ocean Liner and container ship berths to visit three of the Solent rivers, before heading back to Portsmouth via a leisurely Solent Cruise along the north shore of the Isle of Wight, finishing with a grand tour of Portsmouth Harbour.
The Spirit of Portsmouth's fully licensed bar also serves snacks, sandwiches, cakes and soft drinks, with a range of pre-ordered food available, only on the Hamble, Beaulieu, Three Rivers and Southampton Docks cruises. A full inventory of all our Summer Cruises is available on our web site, together with prices, departure times and other useful information.
