Join us for a captivating 3 hour birdwatching cruise featuring commentary from our team of knowledgeable RSPB staff.  Set sail from the picturesque Hawes Pier in South Queensferry and venture eastward towards Inchkeith Island, where a plethora of bird species can be observed in their natural habitat.  Along the way, we will also pass by the Inner Forth islands of Inchgarvie, Inchcolm and Inchmickery, providing a comprehensive and immersive birdwatching experience against the stunning backdrop of the Scottish Coast.

While the charming Puffins undoubtedly steal the spotlight, the variety of wildlife sightings you can look forward to on this cruise is truly diverse.  Keep your eyes peeled for Guillemot, Razorbill, graceful Fulmars, Eider, Cormorant, Shag and Terns.

Additionally, be on the lookout for the abundant Grey and Common Seals lazily basking in the sun, and perhaps catch a glimpse of the occasional Porpoise or Dolphin.

For 2024 we have two dates for our RSPB cruises. 

June 2nd and June 16th both departing at 1800 from Hawes Pier.
