Shuttle Service

Explore Highland are able to offer a drop off and collection service for all your hire boats and kit requirements.

We offer various shuttle service for;

Explore Highland’s New Minibus

New for 2016 is a high spec Volkswagen Transporter T5 SE, fitted with eight full size passenger seats, spacious leg room with a fully air conditioned cab. The minibus can carry up to two standard open canoes or five plastic kayaks on the commercial rhino roof rack system with kayak uprights. To move a larger fleet, the minibus is fitted with a towbar, increasing luggage and craft carrying capacity for larger groups.


Explore Highland’s Canoe Trailer

The canoe trailer can carry up to six(6) standard open canoes, twelve(12) kayaks or a mix off. This takes our total carrying capacity of eight(8) canoes or seventeen (17) kayaks when teamed up with the minibus.

Glass or Kevlar Sea Kayaks

Should you require shuttle services for glass or kevlar sea kayaks, Explore Highland have three (3) sets of Kari-tek kayak J-bars that can be attached to the minibus roofrack to ensure all kayaks are transported safely. Kayak J-bars do reduce the minibus kayak load. Glass & Kevlar kayaks can also be transported on the trailer, and additional paddling is available on request.
