The Maid of the Forth is authorised to transport up to 220 passengers and is carefully crafted to service trips to Inchcolm Island with gangways on both lower and upper decks, ensuring safe access regardless of tide conditions. Featuring dual passenger levels, the lower deck is enclosed, offering warmth, while the upper deck is open, providing a delightful experience to relish the sea breeze during your voyage.  Onboard, guests will find a compact yet well-equipped bar, ready to cater to their beverages needs. Additionally, there are separate restroom facilities available for both women and men, ensuring comfort and convenience for all passengers during their journey.

In addition to our main vessel, we run a fleet of high-speed Rigid Inflatable Boats (RIBs) specifically tailored for unique wildlife-watching excursions. Our fleet includes two boats stationed in North Berwick and one in South Queensferry, each accommodating up to 12 passengers, making them ideal for intimate groups seeking a more personalized experience. To enhance comfort during extended trips or in chilly weather, we offer a cabin RIB where all 12 passengers can cozy up inside a heated cabin, ensuring a snug and enjoyable journey.

We also have Seafari Explorer, a powered catamaran built in 2013 and capable of carrying 55 passengers.

Based in North Berwick she runs regular trips out to the Bass Rock.
