All aboard the Forth Belle for unrivalled views of the Firth of Forth and its magnificent array of bridges and islands. You'll sail out east under the world heritage rail bridge and out and up close to some of the smaller islands where you'll be able to see plenty of the goings on in this lively waterway. During your tour, there's plenty of opportunity to see a wide variety of marine wildlife, with your skipper pointing any out along the way as well as other points of interest. Local wildlife includes seabirds, seals and porpoises. Although sightings are rare, there's even the possibility of the odd dolphin or killer whale, too. Along the way, you'll stop off at Inchcolm Island where you can purchase landing passes and disembark for 90 minutes of exploration. Back on board, you'll both head back west under the heritage bridge and onto the new Queen's ferry crossing before arriving back at Hawes Pier where the tour concludes.
