Do you have a special occasion to celebrate or are you looking for a fun, new way to spend time with friends and family?
Why not charter our narrowboat Bluebell for a private party of up to 12 people?
Prices start from £90 for a 2-hour cruise.
We supply driver and crew, tea, coffee and biscuits. You are welcome to bring your own food and drinks.
Cruises start from Port Buchan in Broxburn. In 2 hours you can travel to the Lin’s Mill Aqueduct and back or, in the opposite direction, to Winchburgh and back.
Recent private hires have been for a themed pirate party, children’s birthday parties and by local scout and walking groups. We have also worked with the council's Education Service to provide trips for local schools.
Please call us to discuss your individual requirements.
The Bridge 19-40 Union Canal Society is a registered charity (SC023110) run solely by volunteers and supported by donations and income from events and boat trips.
Due to the fact we have put our passenger boat, Bluebell up for sale (see explanation under Welcome on our home page), we regret that we are unable to offer boat trips in 2022 We will be starting a Fundraising campaign to raise funds to purchase a new passenger carrying boat. We can still be contacted by telephone, email or via our facebook page.
