The bridges are beautiful and thrilling to sail underneath. The cream tea was a delicious bonus. The commentary was good but some inaccuracy and tgtthe captain was lovely but his comments were very hard to hear.

We had a disaster of a morning as most public transport was cancelling due to staff shortage (covid) so to get to sit and chill out was amazing!! The staff were incredibly friendly and the commentary very comprehensive We were treated with a glorious sunny day and the water was a millpond. Thank you for a wonderful day out
Very enjoyable. Good views and the cream scone, a nice added touch.

The roughness of the water when getting on and off the boat 🚢. Didn't see many puffins on the little islands. The scones with the cream tea were very crumbly
Awesome trip

Awesome trip. You can see beautiful places, wild animals and you can know scottish history. It was really pleasant to join in this. I recommend it to everyone!
Lovely Sail
William_S, Jul 2021
Lovely 90 minutes sail around the 3 bridges and upper reaches of the Firth of Forth (we’d previously done the sail that heads downstream, so wanted to do a different sail). The accompanying commentary was interesting and informative. Helped by beautiful weather, but would be worth doing even if the weather wasn’t quite as nice. I’ll never tire of the sight of the 3 bridges.
