Alternative Boat Hire. Experience the joys of sail power – inshore trips under sail or power in a stable traditional wooden boat. Island visits, exploring inlets and bays, watching sea birds and seals, or fishing with a hand line. Wildlife, history, stories. Family friendly, help work the boat or sit back and watch the coast go by.
Can take up to 12 passengers. Join a scheduled Alternative Boat Hire trip (3 hours or day trip; charged per head) or hire the whole boat, charged for hire of the skippered vessel.
Birthe Marie is an unashamedly old fashioned boat with a gaff ketch rig and a solidity that is reassuring. The whole concept of our trips is of an unhurried drinking in of the landscape. The boat fits into the coastal scene, disturbing little, quietly finding her way into places hidden from life ashore.
