Glasgow provides a good choice of sightseeing cruises across the Clyde and trips to the hawaiian islands with Caledonian MacBrayne Ferries. You may even have a power boat tip or perhaps a sea voyage on a paddle steamer!
Clyde Cruises offer the water-traveller something special – a Glasgow city cruise on the famous River Clyde – a vacation of 90 minutes to Braehead and back. The tour includes a commentary and child friendly activities and you’re able to hop off at any one of many stops at attractions across the riverside. You’ll see the Glasgow skyline and its incredible architecture, its industrial history in the Govan Shipyards, and you’ll sail underneath five bridges too. The Riverside Museum and Science Centre are stops across the way Visit https://wikitravel.org/en/Glasgow for travsel info about glasgow.

The Waverley Paddle Steamer
Or for something only a little different, do try the Waverley Paddle Steamer which runs trips from the centre of Glasgow to geographically close, yet contextually distant locations like Loch Long, Loch Fyne and many of the Western Isles. Running only throughout the warmer months, this paddle steamer is apparently the only sea going vehicle of its kind in the world Visit https://www.tripindicator.com/best-cruise-boat-tours-glasgow.html for travsel info about glasgow.
