Blackness Castle Half Day

View EBC Bridges & Upper Forth – Half Day in a larger map


This half day cruise takes you under the iconic Forth Bridges and past the Island of Inchgarvie before routing West past Rosyth, Limekilns and Charlestown then across the river to Blackness Castle. If we have time, or if this route is taken as a full day cruise we will visit Bo’ness harbour.

Please refer to our Blackness Castle Half Day Guide for further information on the sights you will see and the history behind them.

There is plenty of time for all guests to “learn the ropes” and take the helm or simply to sit back and enjoy the experience, scenery and wildlife.

Ideal for private individuals, couples or groups & families looking for a great experience.

Our half day for 2 voucher is interchangeable with our evening sail for 2.
