Red Moon Winter Posted 15 October 2016

Red Moon Cruises is now in her winter berth - this year we are staying close to Glasgow on the Clyde at James Watt Dock Marina. This means we can still be available for short river trips or even as an alternative to land based B&B - please get in touch if you are interested. Here is Red Moon on her voyage south in the Crinan canal.

Call us to book your Autumn cruise with our special 10% discount.
