Forth Bridges Bus & Boat Tour

Full tour takes about 3 hours

Take in the unrivalled views of the famous Forth Road and Rail bridges, and of the Edinburgh and Fife coastlines. If you're lucky, you might see some puffins and seals. In fact, this summer, if you don't see a seal you can sail again with us for free* 

Highlights include:

  • Princes Street
  • New Town
  • South Queensferry
  • Forth Railway Bridge
  • Inchcolm Island*
  • Forth Road Bridge
  • Queensferry Crossing

*Please note: In order to visit Inchcolm Island you need to depart the boat and will be on the Island for approximately 1 ½ hours. This means that you then pick up the next boat to complete the rest of the cruise and return to Hawes Pier, South Queensferry and the bus. For this reason it is not possible to visit the Island from the last tour of the day.

Tour start and end times vary according to tides. Please allow at least three hours for your tour (excluding time for Inchcolm Island). For more information about the 2014 season timetable please download the tour leaflet here.

The commentary for this bus tour is available in English, French, German, Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Japanese and Mandarin Chinese. Commentary in English is available on board the boat, and multilingual visitors can enjoy language sheets.


* If you are unable to see a seal in the Firth of Forth please inform a member of the Forth Belle staff immediately after your boat tour in order to recieve your complimentary Forth Bridges & Bus Tour ticket. These tickets are valid until 31/08/14.
