We have been so lucky to have been invited to experience Sail with Santa for the last 3 years. This year though we bagged a Saturday cruise meaning that Daddy Moo could join us. The weather was glorious (cold) unlike previous years when it's been blowing a gale but the sky was clear and you could see for miles. We were greeted upstairs by Dr Balloonman a firm favourite of the moo's and as in previous years he didn't disappoint.
The lower deck serves drinks, mulled wine, coffee, squash and chocolate or mince pies. It's also a great place to sit and relax away from the crazy madness of upstairs. You also get a stunning view without having to stand outside on the deck which was a tad chilly. So glad I had my gloves on.
Dr Balloonman aided by his lovely assistant Olive entertained the children with balloons whizzing about, balloon modelling and a dance off. Dr Balloonman is not only funny, entertaining but also has a great way of keeping the children under controlled and active.
Megan was so emotional???? yesterday just kept bursting into tears ???? over nothing. I snapped this on @citycruises #Poole #sailwithsanta ????????when instead of dancing she gazed out the window with Daddy Moo. She spotted a green pointy Bouy and shouted "look Daddy an elf hat" ???????? #visitdorset #lovepoole #daddysgirl #sailing #Christmas #daysoutwithkids #poolequay #citycruises @visitdorsetofficial @pooletourismpics #fatherchristmas #christmas2017 #megan #daddymoo #wearesailing
Normally Megan is owning the dance floor she won the “Olaf” balloon model last year for her skills, but she wasn't quite feeling herself so was glad of the company of Daddy Moo and his knowledge of the shoreline (unlike Mummy who says things like erm … it's someones house)
Father Christmas safely landed on board and the children queued like angels to receive their gifts and the coveted photo with Father Christmas.
The price is £16 per person (including adults although if you book online you save 10%) under 2's free. This includes refreshments, presents and entertainment. Sail with Santa lasts 1 hour and 15 minutes and it's by far the highlight of our Christmas festivities.
