Welcome … you’ve begun your voyage of discovery!
Come with us on an amazing Adventure - experience the wonderful treasures of Portsmouth Harbour, with a unique perspective that is only possible from the water.
Whether a School, College, Charity or Community Group we would be delighted to welcome you onboard. Groups are for a maximum of 10 people and we have space for 3 wheelchair users onboard Wetwheels Solent, our fully accessible powerboat providing water-based activity experiences.
Portsmouth is a vibrant waterfront City packed with history. Home to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard – the only place in the world to see the Royal Navy's historic past and present – as well as the majestic Porchester Castle, Spit Fort, historic HMS Victory and submarine HMS Alliance, hidden treasures including where The Mary Rose was raised and of course the stunning Emirates Spinnaker Tower. The Timeline outlines some amazing facts and figures about these wonderful landmarks. Seeing these iconic sites from the water gives you a truly unique perspective.
We have created an interactive map to enable you to explore the fascinating Points of Interest on a Maritime Adventure, and across other areas of the Harbour and the City of Portsmouth.
This will enable you to view and plan your Adventure, for what we hope will be the experience of a lifetime onboard Wetwheels!
