“Unique and excellent way to spend a few days in Poole”
Reviewed 8 June 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Some school friends and I were looking to get away for a couple of nights to all celebrate turning 40 this year. We were thinking hotel or house but then I stumbled upon this listing. I'm so glad I did. There were 6 of us, 4 of us shared the 2 double rooms and 2 others had their own single room each. The boat was surprisingly roomy and had 2 shower rooms (with toilets) on board. There were loads of electrical points and Mark provides UK power plugs for them. It has a well equipped kitchen plus 3 seating areas - one inside the boat with table, one outside but sheltered with a table and seating on the top deck (not sheltered). Location couldn't be better, right opposite the Thistle hotel in the harbour. The highlight of our stay was when we chartered the boat for a few hours and Mark and Steve took us out around Brownsea/ Sandbanks/Studland bay. They dropped anchor a couple of times, once to go out on their tender to get nearer some caves and another time around Studland bay where they cooked us a BBQ on board (we provided food). We were also brave enough to swim off the back of the boat. Would definitely recommend.

“Amazing Mums and Daughters weekend”
Reviewed 31 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Thank you Mark & Steve for a fantastic break. The Calypso is in a super location, is pretty high so we had great views across the harbour plus a lot of deck space. On board amenities are excellent and really comfortable. Mark looked after us if we needed anything - he wasn't ever too far away. We had the best day out around the coastline, stunning! Steve made sure the brave ones in our group jumped into the water, we went out on rowing boats to the smugglers caves and motor boat to the beaches. Finishing up with a perfect bbq on the Calypso. We will be back - couldn't have asked for more!

“Highly recommended!”
Reviewed 12 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

Thank you so much to Mark tor a lovely afternoon on his boat last weekend. We were a group of 15 ladies celebrating a birthday and we all had a great time. Mark was the perfect host as we enjoyed a few hours at sea and we even experienced some lovely April sunshine on deck as we toured the beautiful coastline around Sandbanks and Old Harry Rocks. Highly recommended for a great day.

“A perfect day charter.”

We booked Calypso, skippered by Mark and ably assisted by Steve, for a day charter on our daughter's 30th birthday. It certainly made for a very special, memorable and hugely enjoyable day - undoubtedly helped by fabulous weather. A lovely stop for swimming and lunch at Chapman's Pool along the Jurassic Coast. Mark is a great host; his barbeque cooking skills are as good as his boat handling skills, and Calypso was the perfect boat for our party of eleven - lots of room to move around although everyone inevitably wanted to be up on the sun deck!
All in all, a perfect day and we would thoroughly recommend Mark and Calypso for a charter out of Poole Harbour. Many thanks again, Mark.
