Exciting news from Wednesday 15th July we will be operating one or two trips per day, the diary is open for bookings 🙂 There are some temporary changes at the moment in line with current Scottish Government guidelines, but this is changing regularly and we will update our working practices accordingly.
At the moment our trips will be private charters for groups of up to 8. This can be just your family or two family groups of your choice or your extended family group. Appropriate 2m distancing between groups must be maintained at all times, this is possible on the outside deck space. Distancing is YOUR responsibility. If anything is not clear please ring us for a chat.
You can choose trips of 2 hours from £110, 3 hours from £180, 4 hours from £240 or up to 6 hours from £300 depending on your group numbers. Destination can also be determined by you, depending on the length of trip, tides and weather. We will only operate 1 long or 2 shorter trips per day to ensure the boat is thoroughly cleaned between family groups. The list of additional information/requirements is below, please make sure you are happy to comply before booking.
We look forward to welcome you aboard soon…….
