You can stay on board Jurassic Falcon, our beautiful Sunseeker Manhattan motor boat from as little as £250 per night in low season. Our boat is the ideal base from which to explore the historic seaside towns of Weymouth and Portland, or even travel inland to further discover the delights of Dorset.
Jurassic Falcon is a pretty, teak trimmed motor boat with three cabins - 1 x double, 1 x small double and a lounge. She has 2 bathrooms, is air conditioned, has an LCD TV, electric hob, fridge and pressurised hot & cold water. On your arrival she'll be spotlessly clean, bed linens and soft towels are provided.
Included in the price is a skippered, motor boat charter along our stunning Jurassic coastline. Charters are weather dependant so we'll check the forecast and choose the fairest day to make sure you get the most out of your trip.
We can offer you a Coastal cruise or a Cruise to Jersey! - see our 'Weekly Cruises' tab for details.
Children under 5 are not allowed on our boats. If you are booking with children over 5 years of age, please ensure they are supervised at all times.
PLEASE NOTE WE ARE COVID SAFE.
We have extra cleaning measures in place to help keep you and your loved ones safe whilst on board.
All touch points are double cleaned and the boat is 'fogged' with disinfectant spray before and after every booking, meaning everything is spotlessly clean and sanitised on your arrival.
Sheets and towels are freshly laundered between bookings.
Until further notice we are only able to accept guests who are 'bubbled'.
As a guest you will have access to Portland Marina's modern and clean facilities. There are toilets, showers and washing machines available for your use if required.
The Boat that Rocks is a Marina-side Restaurant & Bar with plenty of outdoor seating and fantastic views across the harbour, perfect for relaxing with a drink on the waterside.
Open daily it serves a delicious locally-sourced menu with vegan and GF options, as well as fresh seafood specials. There is also a wide selection of cocktails, beers, lagers, local cask ales, light bites and tasty bar snacks to be enjoyed, either inside the spacious, light and airy bar and restaurant or outside at a table overlooking the Marina. Food is sourced from local suppliers, and all fish is fresh and sustainably caught.
During the summer months there is an outside bar and pizza kitchen, regular live music events at weekends and a separate upstairs Pimms bar and terrace boasting the best views in Portland.
There's a relaxed, holiday atmosphere, cool music and a great food menu offering something for every taste.
Taylor's Messdeck Cafe Gallery serves breakfast, light lunch, soup, filled rolls, bevereges, homemade cakes and ice cream. There are also paintings, cards, prints and more available for you to buy as a souvenir, made by Cathy Taylor.
The Isle of Portland is connected to the rest of Dorset by the narrow causeway formed by Chesil beach. The Isle itself is a rugged lump of Jurassic limestone, quarried for centuries to build much of London, as well as more humble local cottages.
The cliffs and old quarries are now mostly Sites of Special Scientific Interest, and home to a wide range of flora and fauna, including rare butterflies. Make sure you look out for the rare lavender that is flourishing near the marina office.
The views from Portland down into Weymouth Bay and along the Jurassic Coast are well worth the effort of climbing the hill, but you can also take the bus.
Chesil Beach stretches 18 miles from the Isle of Portland to West Bay, past the Fleet Lagoon and Abbotsbury Swannery. It has claimed many lives through shipwreck, smuggling and misadventure, but now it is perfect for fishing, picnics and exploring.
White Portland stone was extensively quarried for some of the best buildings and monuments in Britain (including lots of Portland Marina). Kingbarrow Quarry is now a nature reserve and Tout Quarry is a sculpture park – both are worth visiting. The stone is dotted with fossils, and the best place to learn about these is at Portland Museum, which is also full of shipwreck and smuggling facts.
