Personal Watercraft

When visiting Poole Harbour, it is mandatory to have a permit if you intend to use personal watercraft (PW). These permits are easily obtainable if you are able to provide us with the required information. All you need to do is fill out the necessary application form.

Permits for PWs can be bought from either the Harbour Office or purchased from an attendant at Baiter Slipway at the weekends. We recommend that before applying for a permit, you read the Code of Safe Practise for PWs, which will give you a better idea of our rules and regulations.
