We are delighted to offer our customers our new and exciting Glasgow boat tour on our vessel Tonka. This trip will operate from the boating pontoon at Braehead shopping centre, making parking convenient for you all. The trip will last approximately 1 hour and will incorporate various interesting sights to suit people of all age groups!

Live commentary will be courtesy of the fantastic Iain Quinn of the Paddle Steamer Preservation Society (Scottish branch). Iain, for several years now, has been responsible for the commentary onboard the famous paddle steamer Waverley and with his wealth of knowledge, his stories are guaranteed to raise a few eyebrows…

On this trip you will get up closer than you could ever imagine with the best sights on the upper Clyde such as the TS Queen Mary, Glasgow’s famous King George V docks, Glasgow distillery, tall ship Glenlee, the River Kelvin with views to the University of Glasgow, transport museum, Crowne Plaza hotel, the BBC buildings, new warships under construction at Govan, Azamara cruise ships and even sailing over the top of the Clyde tunnel and, (if you are really lucky), the PS Waverley may be at her berth!

This trip is jam packed with amazing sights and fascinating history, as well as plenty of parking spaces and even the option of dining within Braehead, making it the perfect location for a brilliant family day out during the summer holidays!
