We invite you to join our experienced skipper Jamie on board our luxury, Grandezza 27 OC or, as we call her, the "Flying Scotsman 11".

Throughout the day Jamie will share his knowledge of the area with you, so you'll learn about the history, wildlife and current developments in this area. With over 30 years' experience skippering he is the perfect person to ensure you get the best out of your time on the water.

All charters are based on an exclusive-use basis for your party of up to 5 people, children of any age are of course very welcome.

On all our tours you can sit back, relax and take in superb views of three bridges: The iconic red Forth Bridge, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, The Forth Road Bridge, opened in 1964 and the brand new Queensferry Crossing, which will be the longest three-tower, cable-stayed bridge in the world.

Jamie will begin your journey on the Firth of Forth from Port Edgar Marina just outside of Edinburgh.

Our boat: Scandinavian designed and built she is one of the most prestigious vessels in her class. Designed for the changeable conditions of the Northern Hemisphere she can be fully enclosed with heating on, with stern canopy open or closed and the sliding glass roof of the cockpit open or closed allowing the sun to flood in - no need for heavy waterproofs or woolly hats on board! The views from her cockpit are almost 360 degrees allowing superb views and photo opportunities.

Suggested half-day tour:

A 1/2 day on the Firth of Forth can include the viewing of two impressive castles from the water. Blackness Castle, which was used as a filming location for Outlander, and Barnbougle Castle with its haunted past. Both occupy magnificent positions right on the shore of the River Forth. Jamie will also take you right underneath the three impressive bridges, where you can experience the size of these iconic structures up close. You'll then journey downstream to various islands such as Inchkeith and Inchcolm before returning to Port Edgar.

We include pick-up and drop off from your accommodation in Edinburgh, total time approximately 4 hours. Cost £600.00

 

Suggested full-day tour:

A full day on the Firth can enjoy the same locations as our half day tour. There is also the possibility of continuing much further down the Firth, as far as North Berwick. A light lunch will be served at a sheltered anchorage for you to enjoy. If we are able to travel down the coast we will see the islands of Fidra, The Lamb, Craigleith and the world-famous Bass Rock home to the largest single rock colony of Atlantic Gannets in the world.

We include pick-up and drop off from your accommodation in Edinburgh, total time approximately 8 hours. Cost £1000.00

 

We are happy to discuss other options you may wish for, such as Wedding Photos with the iconic Forth Rail Bridge in the background.
