Free One Hour Trips

We offer free one hour trips round Crinan Bay for three days each summer.

In 2019, the Free Trips around Crinan Bay on board ‘VIC 32’ will take place at Crinan based from the pier by the light-house. They are on Saturday, July 6th; Sunday, July 7th and Monday, July 8th. The first one starts in the Canal Basin at 09.00 and all the rest from the pier at 10.00; 11.00; 12.00. Then 14.00; 15.00; 16.00.

Please note well: In previous years embarkation at the boat has been on a first come/first served basis. This is no longer the case. In order to be able to come on these free trips you must show your free ticket at the gangway. We do not want anybody to be disappointed. Please apply for your free ticket to Cathy on Tel: (01546) 830 133 or email: or by post to: Cathy, Puffer Steamboat Holidays, Co. Ltd, Crinan Boatyard, Crinan, Lochgilphead, Argyll, PA31 8QH and order your ticket/s which will be posted to you free of charge. You may also call in and see her and collect your ticket/s.

There is a small shop on board for buying Puffer souvenirs and subject to weather Rachel will be on the pier also selling souvenirs.

We look forward to seeing you.
