TRIP OUT guides
The 'Trip Out' guide, published every two years, is the only complete
directory of the passenger boat
services of the British Isles and is a vital source of information for anyone involved in the business of
running passenger vessels as well as those who enjoy travelling on excursion vessels or ferries.
'TRIP OUT 2015/16' is a 96-page booklet listing
passenger boat operators area by area with their
contact information, details of vessels and a description of the services provided. Maps show
the location of each operator. Symbols indicate catering offered on board. Over nine hundred vessels
are listed, including car ferries, fast catamarans, local pleasure boats, historic steam ships and
horse-drawn canal boats. Here are links to the operators' websites
Price £6.50, including a summer tide table, postage and packing.

There are also guides to the coastal passenger ships of Europe,
available as printed booklets (compiled in May 2016)
