Water Taxi, Charter Trips & Sunday Afternoon Cruises to The Hut – SORRY – NO TRIPS IN 2024

The Hut at Colwell Bay on the Isle of Wight is our favourite restaurant. We love the food, the famous rose wine, the setting, the fun, the staff, the music and we enjoy the mild peril involved in getting off our big boat into their little boats!

We’re very pleased to partner with The Hut to offer private “cruise and dine” solutions for groups of up to 8 people starting from Lymington Yacht Haven in the New Forest.

We have a great relationship with the lovely team at The Hut and can often get our guests a table. When you fill our Charter Enquiry form in, there’s an option to request a table booking which will email our secret contact at The Hut!

For 2023, we’re offering just one tried and tested format – a 6 hour private charter trip comprising:

  • 2 hours of sightseeing,
  • a couple of hours anchored somewhere beautiful for swimming, paddleboarding or just relaxing
  • a drop-off and pick up at The Hut.

Total Cost £??? inc VAT or £??? inc VAT with an optional stay for 4 of you on Zen Dog afterwards


We can offer these trips Sunday to Thursday. The calendar on the right shows our live availability. Fridays and Saturdays are reserved for guests booking a 2 night (Fri & Sat) stay with an optional charter trip.
