Seabird Catamaran

 Duration 1hr (approx)

A one hour family friendly trip on board Seafari Explorer around Craigleith and the Bass Rock.  This stable 55 passenger vessel was custom built in 2012 to provide a family friendly Bass Rock boat trip experience.  This trip takes you around Craigleith with its 15,000 nesting Puffin's before heading down to the world famous Bass Rock with it's 150,000 nesting Gannets.  Fantastic trip for all ages including well behaved dogs.  Keep a look out for seals and even Dolphins, we are seeing more of these amazing mammals who sometimes race along beside the boat on our trips.

As with all boat trips, the weather out on the sea is usually a bit colder than on the land, so make sure to wrap up warm, a waterproof jacket is always handy even in the middle of the glorious scottish summer.  The boat can get in really close to the gannet colonies of the Bass Rock so you will get amazing views of these stunning seabirds.

Due to the design of the boat, historic harbour and maritime safety regulations we are unable to carry passengers in wheelchairs.  Our crew are however willing to help wherever possible to assist you to board the vessel, but depending on the tide level, this can involve climbing and decending several steep stairs, so all passengers must be comfortable doing this.  If in any doubt, please contact our booking office before making your booking and we can provide more information
