Guided Archipelago Tour

You get to see and experience the beautiful archipelago between Hönö and Vinga while the Skipper tells about life on the islands and real events from history.

We take you from AZ or Ö-A. To and from Gothenburg, the Öckerö Islands, Marstrand, yes the entire Gothenburg archipelago.

Round trip Vinga lighthouse

Vinga is Sweden’s last outpost to the west and has a long and exciting history.


Order something to eat the day before departure.

Funeral at sea

Funeral at sea: One last wish for many is to have their ashes lowered into the sea.

Crab fishing

March 15 – June 15. We can guarantee that you get crabs with you home. Crab fishing trips are suitable for everyone.

Mackerel fishing

June 16 – September 24. It’s just as much fun for adults as it is for children when it sucks and it does it mostly around Vinga.

Lobster safari

September 27- November 30. The archipelago between Fotö and Vinga is the finest lobster waters.

The guide and skipper Bosse has created something very special. The tour was personal, fun and entertaining. On the way to and from the island of Vinga, exciting stories from the past were told. Will recommend this tour to several people in my vicinity. Thank you Bosse for a fantastic afternoon on your boat!


Great guided tour to Vinga with Captain Bosse at the wheel. We heard a very interesting story during the trip out to Vinga. Can really be recommended

Kerstin P

The trip to Vinga was really pleasant, and the captain of the ship kept the box in his very own way, we heard about not only Evert Taube but also about seals and German submarines etc. Highly recommended!


So fun and interesting, our kids thought the seal safari was a highlight. We had a wonderful afternoon. It is noticeable that Bosse has a burning interest in history, and he conveyed that so nicely to us who were on the boat trip.
