Poole lifeboat launched at 12.05 (Friday May 5) to a report of a jet ski in difficulty just outside the entrance of the harbour by the Chain ferry.
When the lifeboat volunteers arrived on scene they found that two people reported to be in the water had made it to the beach at Shell bay.
The lifeboat crew checked the couple over as they had been in the water, they were very cold but okay. Conditions out in Poole Bay were choppy with a bracing North Easterly wind gusting 4-5.
The Jet Ski hiring company retrieved their Jet Ski and took it back ashore, the casualties were taken back by the mobile coastguard unit.
Poole Lifeboat was back at the station and ready for service by 13.30.
