If you are seeking a thrilling boat experience on the River Forth, our high speed RIB trips offer an adventurous way to view the impressive bridges and observe closely the wildlife on three of the Inner Forth islands.  

Accommodating up to 12 passengers, these trips provide a more personalised touch and can be customised to the preferences of the group.

The tour starts by gliding beneath the remarkable Forth Bridges.  Your guide will enlighten you on these engineering marvels spanning three different centuries - the 19th century Forth Bridge, the 20th Century Forth Road Bridge, and the 21st century Queensferry Crossing.  Despite their distinct styles, all these bridges were built for the common purpose of transporting people and goods from one side of the River Forth to the other.

The tour then continues past Inchgarvie Island, home to nesting Fulmars offering unique views of the Forth Bridge situated at the island's edge.  As the journey gains speed, you will proceed towards Inchcolm Island, the Grey Seal Colonies, Oscar Lighthouse which has safeguarded seafarers since 1888, and onto Inchmickery, famously referred to as the 'Battleship Island'.

Some of the amazing wildlife to be seen includes Grey Seals, Common Seals, Guillemots, Razorbills, Fulmars, Common Terns, Cormorants, Shags and of course Puffins if you come between April and the end of July when they come ashore to breed on the islands.

Waterproofs and lifejackets are provided, but it can be chilly when out on the water travelling in the open at 30 mph. It is therefore advisable to wrap up warm and wear sensible shoes (no high heels or flipflops.)  These trips are suitable for adults of all ages but children must be aged 8 or over as each passenger is seated on pod style seats that are unsuitable for small children.  These trips are also not suitable for pregnant ladies, or anyone with back injuries or mobility and balance issues.
