New canal boat

Re-Union has launched their new canal boat


Re-Union Canal Boats is based at Edinburgh Quay, Fountainbridge in the heart of Edinburgh.

Our new widebeam boat offers a unique space for up to 35 people which can be used for corporate events, team building sessions or product launches and provides an ideal venue to get away from it all and focus on the job in hand!


The boat is also available for private hire to celebrate birthdays (for any age group!), anniversaries and a whole range of other events. This unique venue combined with the peace and tranquillity of the canal is a perfect place to enjoy your special day with friends and family.


It’s the most relaxing way to get out of the city!


Our boat gently glides along the Union Canal, a unique wildlife corridor connecting the heart of the city with the outlying countryside.  A day trip will take you to rural Ratho and back taking in many points of interest that reflect the rich natural and cultural heritage of the area.  A half day trip goes from Edinburgh Quay to Murrayburn and back.


Facilities on Re-Union


The boat is a warm and cosy space with fully fitted kitchen, toilet – and central heating – perfect for any time of the year.


The boat is yours for the duration of your trip and our qualified Skipper and crew will welcome you on board and ensure your safety and that you have everything you need. We can organise a delicious buffet if required, or you can provide your own food and refreshments which we will be happy to serve for you. 


You’ll even get a chance to steer the boat!!!
