Waverley is currently undergoing winter maintenance and refit work at her berth in Glasgow ahead of an exciting new season in 2024. Meanwhile our online shop is open where you can purchase a range of exclusive Waverley merchandise and gifts.
2024 PROVISIONAL DATES
We are delighted to announce provisional dates for the start of the 2024 sailing season:
- First sailing of 2024 – Friday 17th May
- Glasgow to Oban sailing – Monday 20th May.
The Oban and Inner Hebrides sailings will take place from Tuesday 21st May until Bank Holiday Monday 27th May.
Waverley will be berthed overnight at Oban on 20th & 23rd – 27th May inclusive and at Kyle of Lochalsh on 21st & 22nd May.
The 2024 season will have broadly a similar outline to 2023. We are planning to include the South West for a short period to further broaden Waverley’s operating areas. This will see the ship return to Plymouth and other South West ports / piers.
DONATE TO WAVERLEY – Help us keep our truly unique steamship paddling!
As a charity our primary aim is to maintain and operate Waverley for public benefit by offering a wide range of cruises on a living and working steam heritage attraction of national and international significance.
Maintaining a seagoing paddle steamer in full operation relies on donations, as well as fares, catering and shop sales income. We are exceptionally grateful to everyone who supports our efforts to keep Waverley sailing – without you a vital piece of our proud maritime, engineering and social heritage would have been lost forever.
We welcome one off donations or regular monthly donations from “Friends of Waverley“. Visit the Supporting Waverley section on our website for full details on how you can play a part and help keep Waverley sailing.
You can also support Waverley by purchasing items from Waverley’s Amazon Wish List.
