The Self-Catering Staycation
Exclusive use of Seafin for your family’s holiday. Enjoy all the facilities listed above and then choose, if you wish, from the optional extras listed below.
The Luxury Staycation
Our semi-catered option includes food delivered to Seafin every other day so you can enjoy one day of delicious, freshly prepared food then cook for yourself, enjoy a takeaway or eat out the next day. Each catering delivery will include:
• A two-course evening meal
• A lunch hamper
• An Afternoon Tea
• A replenishment of your drinks cupboard
The Activity Staycation
Perfect for families or groups of friends, our activity holiday provides you with time on the water with the peace of mind of a safety boat driven by Paul, Seafin’s Operations Manager. Depending on the duration of your stay, every other day we will take you for either a three-hour paddleboarding tour of the Hamble or a Jetskiing tour of Southampton Water.
A number of add-ons are available to customise your Seafin Getaway:
Freshly prepared meals delivered to Seafin
If your idea of a holiday is for somebody else to do all the cooking then take a look at the extensive range of meals that can be delivered to the boat. Order in advance, at the time you book your Seafin holiday, or give us 24 hours’ notice. The food is prepared to order by a local caterer. Contact us for menus and prices.
Complete a Tesco provisioning form and we will do your shopping and deliver it to Seafin (Port Hamble ). We will take in on board and put food as necessary into the fridge or freezer. £150 service charge plus the cost of your food.
Kayaks and Paddleboard hire
Explore the many nooks and inlets of the River Hamble. You can drive to the hire shop at Universal Marina or Fairthorne Manor or, for a small fee, we will collect the kayaks or paddleboards for you and meet you at a local slipway. Contact us for hire locations and prices.
Afternoon Tea delivered to Seafin
Enjoy a genteel afternoon tea sat on one of Seafin’s decks. We will bring the afternoon tea to Seafin. We will leave it to you to open the prosecco! Contact us for menus and prices.
Want a picnic lunch to take with you? We can arrange for a picnic hamper to be delivered to Seafin ready for your day out. Contact us for menus and prices.
If you feel the need for speed then you can hire our two jet skis for a half-day (3 hours). We will accompany you in our RIB, escort you out of the river (beyond the six knot speed limit) and then take you on a high speed tour of Southampton Water. We can return to Hamble as needed to refuel and swap passengers. Over 18s only due to insurance requirements. From £170.
