Marine Wildlife:

Seals: The Firth of Forth is home to both common seals and gray seals. You may be able to see them lounging on rocks or swimming in the water.

Seabirds: There is a rich diversity of seabirds in the area. These puffins, gannets, cormorants, guillemots, razorbills, and various species of gulls. These fascinating creatures predominantly nest on the cliffs and rocky outcrops along the Forth.

Dolphins and Porpoises: While less common, sightings of dolphins and porpoises (such as harbor porpoises) are possible during the cruise.

Occasionally, there may be sightings of other marine creatures too. It has been possible to see basking sharks, minke whales, or even orcas, although these are less frequent.

Sights and Landmarks:

Forth Bridges: The iconic Forth Rail Bridge, Forth Road Bridge, and Queensferry Crossing are prominent landmarks and architectural marvels that you can see from the water.

Inchcolm Island: This island is home to Inchcolm Abbey, an ancient abbey dating back to the 12th century. You may have the opportunity to visit the island and explore its historic ruins.

Coastal Cliffs and Rock Formations: The cruise may offer stunning views of rugged cliffs, rocky shores, and interesting geological formations along the coastline.

Lighthouses: You might pass by or have views of lighthouses situated along the coast, such as the Bell Rock Lighthouse or the Isle of May Lighthouse.
