Scheduled and chartered boat trips with an energetic centenarian
Ångaren BOHUSLÄN is one of the oldest and most beautiful ships on the west coast; built in 1914 and now a listed vessel classified as a traditional ship. For over forty years she sailed between Gothenburg and Kungshamn 6 days a week, stopping at many places en route such as Smögen, Lysekil and Marstrand.
These days Ångaren BOHUSLÄN sails on scheduled tours and charter tours every summer - check website for Tickets & Timetabels. You can rent the steamboat for different purposes, such as company events or family gatherings, between May and mid-September. A tour around the archipelago and back takes about three hours and a return trip to Marstrand just over five hours, plus any time you wish to spend ashore. You can visit the engine room below or go to the upper deck and speak with the captain. The maximum number of passengers is 280, with seats at tables for about 90. All tours to and from Gothenburg start and end at Stenpiren, a quay in the city.
