This exciting experience is a great way to discover the thrill and the beauty of the water at the same time! You’ll begin with an exhilarating 60 minute powerboat blast on the Solent, taking in views of historic Napoleonic Forts as your expert instructor tears and turns across the waves at top speeds. Then, once back on land, you’ll be able to ascend up the iconic Spinnaker Tower – a stunning 170m-high landmark boasting breathtaking views over Portsmouth and the water below.
Upon arrival you will receive a safety briefing from an experienced instructor. You will then be provided with life-jackets and escorted to the waiting RIB. After a very brief tour of Portsmouth’s historic harbour, you will power out into the Solent for a 60 minute tour of three Napoleonic Forts - possibly even to the Isle of Wight! The experienced skipper will power the vessel through the waves, demonstrating the craft’s extreme manoeuvrability and incredible agility. Upon return to the berth you will take a trip up Portsmouth’s iconic 170m Spinnaker Tower, where you can enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding landscape from one of the three separate viewing platforms. There is even a café at the top of the tower where you can enjoy a coffee and pastries amongst the clouds if you wish!

Truly fantastic time - Unforgetable
Brilliant trip on the water, racing across to Bembridge past the forts, so close it didn't feel real. After that the views from the Spinnaker Tower were amazing !
Worth every penny so will definitely be back for another go this year !
