Poole Harbour is a busy commercial port with many different types of vessels sailing in and out of it daily. The harbour is also one of the world's largest natural harbours with much wildlife visible in the marshes and mudflats, as well as on Brownsea island inside the harbour. There is also a pontoon ferry crossing the harbour mouth back and forward all day, allowing easy access to the Purbecks.
Facilities at the terminal include a summer café for meals and refreshments, a bureau de change and a left luggage locker facility. The town of Poole is well-connected to other parts of Britain by motorways and public transport.
A car park is situated opposite the terminal. Both long- and short-term parking are available.
