Looking for a more adventurous boat trip around the River Forth?  Our high speed Rib trips are a perfect way to feel the exhilaration of travelling at speed under the magnificent bridges, coupled with being able to get in really close to the wildlife on the three islands in the Inner Forth. Each of our high speed Ribs hold 12 passengers, ensuring a very personal touch to the trips and each trip can be tailored to suit the requests of the group.

The boat tour starts off by passing underneath the amazing Forth Bridges where your guide will tell you all about these wonders of engineering, from the 19th century Forth Bridge, the 20th century Forth Road Bridge, to the 21st century Queensferry Crossing.  Three very different styles of bridge, from three different centuries, but all build for one job, to get people from one side of the Forth to the other.

The tour then passes Inchgarvie Island, with its nesting Fulmars, and fabulous views of the Forth Bridge resting on the end of the island, before picking up speed and heading down to Inchcolm Island with it's grey seal colonies, Oxcar Lighthouse standing proud to protect seafarers since 1888, and Inchmickery also known 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 the Puffins come ashore to breed on the islands

Waterproofs and lifejackets are provided, but as it is always a bit chilly when out on the water travelling in the open at 30 mph, it is advisable to wrap up warm and wear sensible shoes (No high heels ladies!)  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 instabilities.
