About Gunnars Båtturer & charter

Gunnar’s Boat Trips has run ferry services in Bohuslän’s archipelago for 40 years. The business comprises chartered sailings, scheduled archipelago trips and school transport services. The company operates three vessels, all of which are fast, seaworthy and customised to our operations. Our home harbour is at Dyrön, a car-free west coast gem of an island, lying between Tjörn and Marstrand and a permanent home to 300 year-round residents.

So we can offer you all-in-one solutions for all types of events, we have formed a solid partnership with restaurants and conference facilities all along our routes. If you’ve any particular wishes, we’d be glad to hear them. Our goal is to make your trip both safe and memorable. Our nautical skills with a personal touch are engrained in our service. And don’t forget, this is not just a summer experience; the archipelago is just as beautiful in spring, autumn and winter.

We can also offer accommodation for smaller groups and families. On Dyrön we have two overnight options, which can be hired for a day at a time or weekly.

Getting here

With car

Take the E6 in Kungälv towards Marstrand. Drive towards Marstrand about 15 km. Just before you drive up the Instöbron, turn off to the right, Rökan is the parking lot under the bridge abutment on the mainland side. Road sign shows that a ferry departs for Åstol. The car park has a pay machine for the summer season.

By public transport

Take the Marstrandsexpressen from the Nils Ericsson terminal in Gothenburg. Alternatively, take the Bohusbanan to Ytterby station. Change to Marstrandsexpress for further travel towards Marstrand. The stop where you get off is called “Badplats Rökan”. Walk down under the bridge to the ferry dock.

We live on the island and work here – which creates jobs, we cooperate with the local store, restaurant and with the community association. We at Gunnars Båtturer work actively to create a sustainable business for Dyrön, where we live and work. Our goal is to show off Dyrön as a place where we want to work and live and welcome more people to settle here or visit the island.

We are also working to reduce car traffic – this by getting people to choose boat and bus/train on their journeys between the islands and Gothenburg. We work together with Volvo Penta for the development of environmentally friendly machines
