    Do We Ever Cancel?

    Only under extreme and unusual circumstances such as If when we have had sustained rain, strong winds and unusually high tides it then very occasionally washes lots of dead trees, branches and other debris off the banks of the Clyde, this can be quite hazardous and we would be forced to cancel some trips even at the time of your arrival till the river flushes itself clear with a few changes of tide. If this happens we will do our best to let you know in advance, we recommend calling to check before you come. It is rare but we need to make our passengers aware of it.We do reserve the right to cancel any trip even at the last minute due to heavy rain or other conditions that make it dangerous to go out. Common sense has to come in to play.
