Cruise Ships visiting in the Firth of ForthCruise Ships Sightseeing Tour

For dates and times of all sailings where you can view cruise ships, please see our Port Edgar timetable

Many of the world’s greatest cruise ships will be anchoring in the Firth of Forth during 2017. You can view these immense ships up close on our popular Sightseeing Tour aboard the Forth Belle.

Our boat tours depart from Port Edgar on days when cruise ships are visiting the Firth of Forth. We follow the route of our usual Sightseeing Tour during which you'll get the chance to view the giant passenger liners anchored in the Firth of Forth.

Sit in the heated observation lounge or on the outside decks and listen to the guided commentary while you enjoy a drink from the bar.

During your tour you’ll find plenty of opportunities to see a wide variety of marine wildlife including many seabirds, seals and watch out for the occasional porpoise. Binoculars are available to hire for a small, refundable deposit. Just ask a member of our crew.

On-board commentary has transcripts available in French, German, Spanish, Italian, Polish and Japanese languages.
