Bag today’s Big Deal on a Three Bridges Cruise with Forth Boat Tours and you’ll enjoy incredible views of the 19th century Forth Rail Bridge; the 20th century road bridge and the 21st century Queensferry Crossing. 

All three showcase amazing engineering skills and this Big Deal is a unique way to see them all from a whole new perspective.

Set sail with Forth Boat Tours

The offer is very straightforward. The Big Deal is for two or four adults to take the Three Bridges Cruise.

There are several cruises a day and they run seven days a week. Most depart from Hawes Pier, South Queensferry, except on days when cruise ships are in the Forth. On these days, departure is from Port Edgar Marina. Check for timetables.

Three Bridges Cruise

Each cruise takes approximately 90 minutes giving you plenty of time to relax on board and listen to the guided commentary while you enjoy a beverage or snack from the bar.

The route takes in spectacular views of the three bridges; the beautiful panoramas of the Edinburgh skyline to the South and the Kingdom of Fife to the North.

Guests are welcome to enjoy the sea breeze and views from the outside decks, some of which have weatherproof seating.

If the weather is less inviting, the heated observation lounge has fantastic views. A guided commentary means you won’t miss a thing wherever you sit.

Island views

The cruise sails past the islands of Inchgarvie, Inchkeith, and Inchmickery as well as the island of Inchcolm with its medieval abbey.

There is the option to go ashore at Inchcolm Island.

The abbey is one of the best-preserved groups of monastic buildings in Scotland. The island is also a haven for wildlife and is well-known for its wartime coastal defences. 

If you wish to explore island, you need to purchase a Historic Scotland Inchcolm Island Landing Pass. These can be purchased online or on board the boat. They are priced at £6 for adults with concessions at £4.80 and children’s passes (age 5-15) for £3.60.

Guests cannot visit Inchcolm on the final sailing of the day. The boat only stops at Inchcolm on the final sailing of the day to collect passengers.

Access to Inchcolm Island is not suitable for wheelchair users.

Wildlife spotting

During your cruise look out for the marine wildlife including many seabirds, seals and the occasional porpoise.

Happy sailors

Forth Boat Tours has more than 550 TripAdvisor reviews and 97% of them rank the tours as excellent or very good. The following are excerpts from longer reviews:

‘Enjoyable trip. We have been on this trip a few times and have enjoyed every one… and for the first time I was able to make use of the bar as I was not driving. Even for people familiar with the area, the boat trip gives passengers a good way to see the many landmarks, the bridges, the seals and the other wildlife from a new perspective. There are some great photo opportunities; all made the more engaging by the running commentary giving some interesting facts and stories along the way…’

‘Excellent way to photograph the three bridges… A great day out for the family. Kids love it.’

Three bridges, three centuries

These spectacular cruises from Forth Boat Tours combine an opportunity to view marine wildlife with magnificent views of the three Forth bridges – each an icon of Scottish engineering over the last 300 years.

Haul anchor and set sail for this Big Deal on the Three Bridges Cruise. It would be ideal for a day out with family, friends and visitors.

And if you wanted a quirky date idea who could resist an invitation to go on a cruise?

Not too far to travel from Glasgow and to sail on the water and view the Forth Bridges and visit the island. Looks like a good day out.
