Boat Trip - Helensburgh Shoreline & the Sugar Boat Wreck

Join us on a boat trip from Rhu Marina along the Helensburgh shoreline towards Helensburgh Pier, then out to circle round the Sugar Boat Wreck.

On this fascinating boat trip, you will motor along from Rhu Marina to Helensburgh Pier, viewing the town from a whole new perspective, then circle closely round the Sugar Boat, learning about the history of this iconic feature. There’s a chance to see local wildlife, such as seabirds, seals, porpoises and if we are very lucky, dolphins, as well as lots of boat traffic.

Trips run at various times on Saturdays and Sundays and occasionally weekdays as well. This trip can also be booked privately, giving you and your party exclusivity.

From £18 per adult
