Rhu Marina, Rhu, Helensburgh

Book a private boat trip

In addition to our regular public boat trips from Rhu Marina, our tour boat can also be booked by private groups, for trips from 1 hour to one day. The boat will accommodate up to twelve people, and all details are on our website.

Our website has a number of suggestions for day trips. We can tour up Loch Long to Arrochar with some time ashore, to Bute with time ashore in Rothesay, or across to Greenock & up the River Clyde where you can have time ashore to visit Braehead Shopping Centre, the Riverside Transport Museum or the Clydeside Distillery. Shorter private hire is also available - 1 or 2 hours, half day trip etc, and again suggestions are on our website. Or you may have ideas of your own and we would be very happy to tailor the trip to suit your group.

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 by phone or email to discuss your thoughts and to request a date and time. A degree of flexibility and advance warning would help but short-notice private trips can often be arranged.
