HYTHE MARINA - Free boat trips for disabled people.

Welcome To Solent Dolphin

We are delighted to confirm that our 2021 season will be commencing with passenger trips from 1st June.

Fully accessible boat trips for disabled people and those of mature years.
Our m/v Alison MacGregor is in pristine condition, and following crew training throughout May we plan to commence

Tuesday 1st June, until 30th Sept. - 7 days per week, mostly 2 x 2-hour trips per day, from Hythe Marina.

Safety of our passengers and volunteer Skippers and Crew members is always of paramount importance to us, so due to Covid social spacing restrictions passenger groups per trip will be limited to 6 persons only (including wheelchair users), and including support staff/escorts.
All trips will be subject to current Covid precautions which will be closely monitored and considered as the season progresses.

If you have already registered your interest for trips this season you will be contacted in the next couple of weeks to arrange your bookings. Otherwise, please phone our booking line 023 8084 8774 or email us at solentdolphin@gmail.com.
Online booking will not be available this season.

We look forward to speaking with you, and to welcoming you aboard.
