Cruise under the Forth Bridges on this award winning 1.5-hour sightseeing cruise. The cruise was recently voted one of the best things to do in Edinburgh, and will display many highlights of the region to you.

Highlights

  • Spot the abundance of seals, puffins, and other seabirds and wildlife
  • Enjoy breathtaking views as you cruise under the Forth Bridges
  • Listen to the full commentary detailing the rich history and wildlife on the Forth

Description

Your tour will begin as you visit the booking office and gift shop to collect your boarding pass. From there, you will make your way onto Hawes Pier to board the boat and embark on your sightseeing cruise. Once the boat has departed Hawes Pier, there will be a brief safety message played to all passengers before the audio commentary begins. The journey then starts with the boat heading under the Red Forth Rail Bridge before continuing past the historic Inchgarvie Island towards Inchcolm Island. You can listen as the skipper points out seals, puffins, and other wildlife that can be found throughout the cruise. Once around Inchcolm Island, you can watch carefully for sunbathing seals on the Haystack before the cruise continues back under the Red Rail Bridge towards the Forth Road Bridge and the recently opened Queensferry Crossing. Once under these majestic bridges, the boat will cruise back to Hawes Pier where you will be free to disembark.
