Boat trips from Daftö
If you would like to experience the West Coast and Bohuslän properly, then we recommend a boat trip out to sea. Here the winds are salty and the experiences many.
Daftö Resort is located between the cities of Gothenburg and Oslo. If you are used to city pulse, the tranquillity of the sea will be palpable. Many boat trips depart from Daftö, several times a week in summer, and at other times of the year we can arrange trips to order. You can also make your way out to North Koster and South Koster by boat all the year round from the centre of Strömstad.
The boat trip departs from Daftö’s jetty and heads out to the islets and skerries in Kosterhavet National Park. If we’re in luck, we may see the odd seal close up, and we will look out for several species at the edge of the sea before stepping ashore on one of the many islands in the archipelago. At the same time as you are hit by the incredible nature experiences of the Koster Sea, a guide talks to us about the history of the area, and we are served a tasty meal. The boat departs from Daftö at 6 pm and returns at about 10 pm.
