Taymara (Tay Maritime Action) is a voluntary sector organisation which exists to serve the local communities of Tayside – i.e. the geographic 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.
Here at Taymara we .are currently working on one project and have more in the pipeline, subject to funding. Each project is unique and provides a service to the community.
The Gannochy Project is live now.
Taymara augments grant funding and the generosity of individuals by providing a season of river tours
Departing from variously Broughty Ferry and Tayport, they are a wonderful opportunity for viewing wildlife, scenery and heritage on Scotland’s largest river
