Supper and safaris

Every Thursday through June, meet some of Brownsea's more elusive wildlife. The National Trust has teamed up with the Dorset Wildlife Trust to guide you on an exciting nocturnal adventure.
Enjoy an evening boat ride over to Brownsea after all of the day visitors have gone home. Upon arrival, you'll head to the cafe overlooking the harbour for a delicious dinner.

Afterwards, your guide will meet you and take you on an adventure to meet some of Brownsea's intriguing wildlife as they emerge for the evening. At this time of year, the lagoon is alive with an orchestra of bird sonance and the nightjars have flown in and are skimming over the heath.
Adults £40 Child £20 (over 12s)
Head to the National Trust Sandbanks jetty to the right-hand side of the Sandbanks chain ferry. The boat will depart at 18:00. Depending on group size, the return boat will be at 22:30. If you are coming from Studland and have parked your car in Shell Bay, please let the boatman know so you can return in time for the last chain ferry.
