Rowing boats and outboard motor boats are available for
hire at the quay, and modern motor boats make frequent short
trips from the landing stage at the town end of the Promenade,
and from the quay, to give a seaward view of the coast on both
sides of the Bay. Some of these boats also run trips to the
lobster fishing grounds and visitors may have the unusual ex-
perience of seeing the main ingredient of their lobster salad
hauled from the sea and may collect it a few hours later ready
for serving!
The Swanage Sailing Club, with headquarters near the
pier entrance, races in the Bay on Thursday evenings and on
Saturday afternoons and temporary membership is available to
those interested.
Boats can also be hired at Studland.
