Taymara is a not for profit charity serving the local community, using boats and nautical training to harness the positive aspects of a marine environment for all members of our local community, regardless of income or status.

Taymara (Tay Maritime Action) is a charity run entirely by volunteers on a not for profit basis for the benefit of the local community.
We aim to provide a community boat service and maritime experience through sightseeing and dolphin watching trips which allow great opportunities to see the river and its wildlife as it should be seen – from the water!
In addition, we aim to provide sea training for individuals and vulnerable groups who might normally be excluded from this experience.
We also work closely with organisations who provide recovery and rehabilitation programmes which encompass drug and alchohol abuse.

David was raising funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care and the RNLI.  Taymara is happy to support other local charities and individual initiatives.
