Booking the activity was hassle-free and redemption of ticket was fast. The weather was not good that day, it was raining until almost end of the boat ride, so we've decided not to visit the island. We were sailing for 90 minutes. we've seen the cute sea lions resting and it was more than enough to enjoy the experience.

Was very good value for money and a great trip.

Really enjoyed our trip. As well as seeing the three great bridges from a different perspective we got to see Puffins and Seals as an extra treat. Had the option, for an extra fee, to disembark halfway to go on the island and afterwards regretted not doing that but was a great experience anyways. Would recommend this trip with interesting commentary all the way.

An enlightening sail on the Firth of Forth

I took friends on this mini cruise on The Firth of Forth. Not knowing what to expect we were blown away by the scenery and the weather was so kind to us all that it added to our overall enjoyment. The commentary was extremely helpful and seeing the marine life was icing on the cake. A great trip at a very affordable ticket price.
