“Re-Union is a social enterprise based at Edinburgh Quay, in the heart of Edinburgh. Our wide beam boat was fitted out by volunteers and offers a unique space for up to 35 people which can be used for corporate events, voluntary groups or private functions.
Our boat gently glides along the Union Canal, a unique wildlife corridor connecting the heart of the city with the outlying countryside and country parks of Mid and West Lothian. This unique venue combined with the peace and tranquillity of the canal is a perfect place to get away from it all.
The boat is a warm and cosy fully accessible space with fitted kitchen, toilet – and central heating – perfect for any time of the year. Our qualified Skipper and fully trained volunteer crew will welcome you on board and ensure your safety.
You even get a chance to steer the boat!!!
Profits raised from this activity go towards creating volunteering and training opportunities, identifying and developing projects to engage with the communities of West Edinburgh and creating opportunities for people to access the Union Canal.
Re-Union works with canal side communities and has supported planting an orchard at Wester Hailes, is working in partnership on a Healthy Eating Garden, provides canoe building courses and is supporting the development of a local canoe club. We also co-ordinate the Edinburgh Canal Festival and Raft Race.”
