Forth Bridges & Islands Explorer Speedboat Tour, South Queensferry
- An extended 60 minute speedboat tour on the River Forth
- Travel under the famous & historic Forth Road and Rail bridges
- Keep an eye out for the many Seals, Porpoises and Sea Birds that call the river home
Welcome on-board this high-speed RIB tour on the River Forth. This 1-hour trip is a comprehensive tour around the River Forth at South Queensferry and is a fun experience for family and friends!
Departing from Port Edgar at South Queensferry the first and most imposing sight is the existing Forth Road Bridge and Victorian Forth Rail Bridge. Initially travelling up-river, you’ll explore the site of the new forth road bridge, witnessing the construction of Scotland’s biggest engineering project.
We then pass Rosyth Dockyard where Britain’s new Aircraft Carriers are being constructed. You will also catch a glimpse of Britain’s four redundant nuclear submarines.
Turing east, you’ll experience unparalleled views of the rail bridge as you pass underneath and trains travel overhead between North and South Queensferry. Built in 1890 the Forth Rail Bridge was the largest cantilever bridge in the world and was the only crossing of the Forth until the road bridge over 70 years later. The bridge is considered to be the 8th wonder of the world today.
Look out for the fantastic abundance of wildlife that lives in the river including Seals, Porpoise and wide range of wild seabirds.
Your trip will finish with a high speed circuit passing the Islands of Inchcolm and Inchmickery. Also, during the summer there are often cruise ships anchored off Inchgarvie Island and you’ll be able to get up close with these huge vessels.
Your skipper will ensure you have the best trip possible, whether it’s blasting over the water at up to 40 mph or spotting the wildlife on the River Forth.
