Tay River Trips are run by Taymara, a not for profit charity serving the local community. Boats leave from Broughty Ferry Harbour just across from the castle.

Days and times depend on the tides. Check the timetables below, then telephone 01382 542516 – try to have alternative days or times ready. You will need to give a contact number (preferably a mobile) in the event that a trip has to be cancelled due to adverse weather etc.

On the day of your trip, please make sure you arrive in plenty of time as the boats keep to a tight schedule. Check the weather and dress appropriately.

Trips last approximately 1 hr. Payment is taken at the start of the trip.

Did you know that Taymara runs a programme of educational and therapeutic river trips for children aged 5 to 18 with serious illnesses (principally cancer), AND for children affected by parents suffering from similar conditions? Each child can be accompanied by up to two parents/carers. This service is funded by Children in Need and The Robertson Trust, and is totally free of charge to all participants. It is open to people living in the Angus, Dundee, Fife and Perth and Kinross Council areas. Please  contact steve.bretel@taymara.org for further details.
