Marsden Shuttle

The 12 seater ‘Marsden Shuttle’ Water Taxi between Marsden Station and Tunnel End Cottages runs most Sundays and Bank Holidays from Easter to the end of October each year and is operated by our volunteers.

Volunteers undergo a programme of training and, if they wish, have the opportunity to train for a Certificate of Community Boat Management and become an authorised skipper for the Shuttle.

Please contact us if you are interested in helping to crew our boat!

For information about boat trips, please see this page.
