Our regular schedule of public boat trips from Rhu Marina stops on 25 Sept, but our tour boat can be booked by private groups up to 12 Dec. The boat will accommodate up to twelve people.

This half-day trip starts from Rhu Marina, near Helensburgh and we are happy to tailor the trip to suit your group. We can tour along the Helensburgh shoreline and then out and round the Sugar Boat wreck, or across to Greenock/Gourock, & Port Glasgow or the Cloch Lighthouse, or even go spotting for seals, porpoises or dolphins. We can go to Holy Loch Marina or Kip Marina, where you can have time ashore for coffee, a meal or snack or just to browse and watch the activity.

Our boat is spacious, stable and comfortable, with seating both indoor and outdoor for up to 12 passengers, and is suitable both for young children and for those who may be more physically challenged. We serve teas and coffees and local Helensburgh tablet. We also welcome well-behaved dogs on leads.

Contact us via our website to discuss your thoughts and to request a date and time. We will need to see if we can arrange the boat, a skipper and a crew, so it will help if you have a degree of flexibility.
