On Monday 7th July, 3 Miniport Ships crossed the Solent from Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, passing Gunwharf Quays and Gilkicker Point, arriving at Ryde Pier 4 hours later, to raise money for Chernobyl Children's Life Line......
We raised a total of nearly £1000 for the charity; our ships had never been on open water before, so were escorted by 2 rigid inflatables from Mendez Marine
This really was an adventure afloat! You can share the adventure by visiting us at either Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, or Gunwarf Quays Miniport, and taking out a boat with your family. We're sorry, but you're not allowed out of the boating ponds this time.........
The Nautikidz Mini Port
We provide the best family boat hire experience you will ever encounter. Our miniature ships are huge fun to drive, and suit a very wide age range. They are electrically powered and some of the easiest to control you will ever see – almost any family group will enjoy the experience.
Does your child love messing about on water? Bring them down to a Miniport to drive a ferry, a Royal Navy destroyer, a Police boat, and even a motor torpedo boat.
Learn new skills driving between the buoys and share your children’s' sense of adventure - we have 2 sites in Portsmouth within a short walk of each other.
So many families are coming back again and again, we know you’ll want to come back soon!
