Lovely to see all the bridges close up and hear their history. Fortunately we had a beautiful sunny day for our trip. Commentary good. Lovely to see seals basking. Overall a lovely experience but probably best in good weather. Boat does have indoor and outdoor seating and toilets and bar with hot and colx drinjs and snacks.

The tour is excellent value for money. On the boat for an hour and half. Sailing under the bridges was fascinating. We saw couple of sea lions and puffins. The boat has a cafe and toilets. The captain gave us a detailed commentary of the bridges and area very interesting. Would recommend the tour.

Great little cruise

We were able to book this short notice (24 hrs) and absolutely loved it. The crew were great. The scenery was just wonderful
, Aug 2019
So the cruise itself was lovely - but at first we weren't even going to make it on due to only being a few minutes late! Bearing in mind it was my boyfriend's birthday too; this was because of rush hour and the drive from Royal Yacht Britannia! Luckily, the girl at the ticket desk was alright after I asked if we could exchange for the day after, and thankfully she helped us out! Lovely cruise, bar on board, no mention of food/snacks etc or whatever though! Too many annoying children on top deck until it got too chilly. Nice captain, very informative, and saw seals!
