The very first recorded pleasure excursion from Bournemouth Pier was by the steamer 'Fawn' in 1868. It was chartered for a trip over to Spithead, where a review of the fleet was being held in honour of the Shah of Persia. There has been a long association between Bournemouth Pier and the pleasure steamers, the principal paddle steamer operator on the Wessex coast being Cosen's of Weymouth from 1918 to1996. Monarch, Empress and Victoria is naming just a few of the regular fleet that called at the pier. There are many other local boats offering day trips and excursions that are operated along the coast, including the family of Dorset Belles that were built and operated by the Bolson family for many years at the Skylark Boatyard in Poole which are now part of RNLI. The 'Bournemouth Belle' was one of the first post-war boats that the Bolson's operated from the Pier, after that the fleet were affectionately nicknamed 'the Dorset Belles' by holidaymakers. Pleasure cruises from the pier continue to this day, along with regular seasonal visits by the paddle steamer 'The Waverley' and her motorised companion 'The Balmoral.'
