Taymara (Tay Maritime Action) is a voluntary sector organisation which exists to serve its local communities, namely the administrative areas of Fife, Dundee, Angus and Perth & Kinross. Our vessels and qualified crews provide safe access to the exciting Tay river marine environment to impart knowledge, qualifications, skills and memorable maritime experiences for all, but especially for those who are disadvantaged or vulnerable.


WE can help YOU and how YOU can help US, while benefiting from a fresh and stimulating perspective on life, prospects, potential, knowledge and skills.
