Lagan Boat Tours
« on: August 21, 2009, 11:45:05 AM »
Anyone done the Lagan Boat Tours? When over 'home' on holiday I did two - they are very good and could recommend them to anyone.

wifam, I am retiring  some time over the next few years and am going to have a wee business taking tourists on a floating tour up the Lagan in a glass bottomed boat...my advertising slogan will be. "come up the Lagan on a bubble" ;) :D

LOL- will look out for that when I am over. Then when someone takes me for a fool I can genuinely say "I did come up the Lagan  "

Hi plaza hopper - let us know how your daugther's trip on the boat went. I couldn't really imagine that boat taking 16 comfortably ... maybe it's a different boat for larger numbers. The guys that run it are good crack and they give a very good and informed commentary on the trip. I went on the Titantic one and also the lagan course up to the boat club & Cutters Wharf. It's a great way to see the city from a totally different perspective. Perhaps if you live there you might not think of it - but as I don't it was a very enjoyable thing to do. And it's amazing to see how the lagan has changed -- who would have thought some years ago that people would pay a lot of money to live along the river lagan??

It was two years ago & it was work that brought me to England then I hopped over for a week to Belfast. Got round the family & not much more - that's who I was with on boat tour. Next time it will be a proper holiday for a longer time - we are looking at next year but no firm plan yet. The airfares are still expensive with us (for some reason your fares are better going to Australia). So hopefully we will catch up then :)
