What people are saying about Queensferry

AMAZING! I've lived on the Firth of Fourth all my life and have been to South Queensferry/Blackness many times but the view from the water is far different and so beautiful. We did this as a treat for our son's birthday (8) but will definitely be doing it again in the future. Even our hard to please 11yo loved it. It was a stunning day but I would recommend remembering your hat and gloves as it was still nippy but hay it's Scotland in March so we were happy with no rain.

Delightful cruise, staff extremely efficient and friendly and the cream scones were pretty good too! We were perhaps lucky with superb weather in March but I would highly commend this cruise as a great way to spend some time and learn a lot about the Forth estuary.

I really enjoyed the cruise, the bridges look amazing, and we also got to see a seal chilling in the sun. The weather was great too which made the cruise even more amazing.

Really enjoyed the boat trip on the Forth Really interesting commentary on board Lovely afternoon cream tea

Lovely informative trip, we saw quite a few seals and porpoises too. The cream tea was good too.
