Enjoy a 3 hour evening cruise on the river Forth featuring live music.  Our legendary Jazz cruises have been running for 30 years now and still prove extremely popular with audiences of all ages.

Our resident Jazz Band, the "Maid of the Forth Stompers", celebrate their 33rd year playing on board this year.  They really know how to entertain you on your cruise and are a wealth of information about the local landmarks, and so provide great commentary of what you can see in between songs.  They play a mixture of dixieland and traditional Jazz and they are open to any requests and frequently play some great sing along songs for you all to join in with.

The route that we take will depend on the conditions on the evening.  Ideally we head down river towards Inchcolm Island and the Oxcars Lighthouse, before turning back up river for some stunning sunsets and views of the bridges.

Please note that due to covid restrictions we will be operating a booked table system on a first come basis.

We need to adhere to government covid guidelines and restrictions so tables will be sold as groups of 6 in the main bar/saloon and singles and couples seated in the aft observation lounge.

We will be operating table service for all purchases of drinks and snacks from the bar.

All bookings must at the moment be made by telephone on 0131 331 5000.

The office is open 10am - 5pm every day.

The majority of our evening cruises depart from the Hawes Pier, South Queensferry, but occasionally when the tides suit we offer departures from Alloa Quayside, where we cruise upriver along the 'windings' all the way up to Stirling.  

On all of our evening cruises we offer an optional tasty BBQ Ribeye Steak Baguette/Salad Supper to enjoy on board during the cruise (these must be pre-booked).

*Please note our BBQ suppers will not be available due to Covid restrictions for our 2021 season*
