Groups & Private Charter

We are proud to offer a totally bespoke, chartered cruise service. We’ve taken the already enchanting and memorable experience of sailing the waters of our world-famous Firth of Forth – and enhanced the experience in every way. With a chartered cruise by Forth Boat Tours, the list of possibilities is endless; from your choice of vessel, departure point, route around the Firth of Forth and, most importantly, the choice of on-board catering, entertainment and other thoughtful touches that will, quite simply, make your guests say “Wow!”

We work with local partners to bring you a choice of catering and accommodation options.
