Take a relaxing boat trip on the Forth Belle and enjoy unrivalled views of the Firth of Forth and its famous bridges!

PuffinMarine Wildlife

During your tour you’ll find plenty of opportunities to see a wide variety of marine wildlife including seabirds, porpoises and seals. Watch out for dolphins which occasionally swim into the Forth Estuary. Use our on-board binoculars and telescope to get a close-up view! (See our photo gallery).

Refreshments and Souvenirs

On board the Forth Belle we have a selection of teas, coffees, light snacks, beers, wines and spirits for you to choose from along with a range of small gifts and souvenirs.

Sailing information

Please see our timetable for dates and sailing times. Tickets may be purchased online or on board the boat.

Certain tide heights allow easier access to the boat (not as steep an incline on the gangway). They are safer and more comfortable for wheelchair users or those with limited mobility. Please see our disabled timetable for the best days and times to sail.
