Can Anyone Come On The Fast Boat Trips?

Yes absolutely, there are no restrictions! The fast powerboat trips are suitable for all ages, shapes, sizes and We even have lifejackets to fit small babies. We are very experienced in taking children out. The youngest passenger was 3 months old all snuggled up wrapped in a babies lifejacket and the most elderly was 93.

If you have mobility issues then that is not a problem as long as you are ok with being assisted onto one of the seats on the boats. Whatever your situation we promise we will look after you and make your time with us very enjoyable.

How Long Do The Fast Boat Trips Last?

The ride times for the "Clyde Ride" and the Erskine Bridge ride, as published, are approximate and sometimes may take longer or less time than advertised. This is completely down to the speed the boat is driven at on the day. The route is always the same and will be explained by your skipper when you get here. To us your safety is paramount though.

Please note that on rare occasions there may be a wee delay due to the fact that the boats require refuelling if its been a busy day. On occasion due to weather conditions there may be short delays in going on your fast boat trip but it is rare.

The Erskine Bridge, Dumbarton Rock And Kilcreggan Rides

For the longer rides we require a minimum of 6 adult passengers or the equivalent in adults and children or cost to be met. This is simply due to the cost of fuel. Usually, in season and if the weather is favourable we have enough passengers to meet this criteria. Out of season this may not be the case. If you wish to hire the full boat so that no other passengers join your party then the minimum cost is the payment equivalent for 9 adult passengers.
