Seagull Trust Cruises
Founded in 1978, the Seagull Trust Cruises charity offers free cruises on Scotland’s canals for people with additional support needs. From small beginnings, Seagull Trust Cruises hosted 22,841 passengers on 2,444 cruises in 2016.
A completely voluntary charity, cruises run from branches at Ratho near Edinburgh, Falkirk, Kirkintilloch and Highland at Inverness. In addition, a purpose-built holiday boat based at Falkirk is available.
Wooden Spoon Seagull, owned by Seagull Trust Cruises and operated by Seagull Canal Cruising, was converted to a floating classroom thanks to a very generous grant from The Wooden Spoon Charity.
All monies raised in the operation of Wooden Spoon Seagull go towards funding the floating classroom and ultimately to assist Seagull Trust Cruises’ charitable works.
