Overview
Being out on the water is the best way to experience a vast area as beautiful as the Clyde. Forget about all that goes on inland and immerse your senses while we whisk you around some incredible attractions like castles, lighthouses and sunken shipwrecks and at the same time get up close and personal with nature and keep your eyes peeled for porpoise, seals, sea eagles, otters and more. Nowhere else in this area offers such an extensive maritime tour, and can taylor the trip to suit your groups needs. If you want to go slow, then we go slow. If you want to go fast, then yes we will go fast! You tell us what you want and we will do everything in our power to make it happen. We hope to see you here with us for 2020 and beyond, come aboard the Starfish Enterprise and enjoy all of what the Clyde has to offer!
