I went on a trip to Inchcolm last night, this was my second trip with them and it was fantastic. I felt very safe at all times but loved the trip and think this would be great for all ages, Stuart and Leanne could not have been more helpful or professional but also very friendly, do it you will be so glad you did.

I took one of the trips run by Calypso when Cunard’s Queen Victoria was visiting the Firth of Forth in July 2010. The boat and equipment were clean and well maintained. Life jackets were provided along with waterproofs if we required them. Stewart was friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the area. We were taken at great speed from the jetty at North Queensferry to where the Queen Victoria was anchored, just east of the Forth Bridge. When we reached her, we slowed and were able to view (and photograph) her from the water. It’s not every day you get the chance to see a cruise liner, both bridges and wildlife up close from such a unique viewpoint!
I can’t recommend a trip with Calypso highly enough – it will definitely bring a smile to your face and is great value for money. Note: Dress warmly – even on the warmest summer day, the Firth of Forth is cold.

Stewart and Roy provided the best trip on the forth, more than my friends and i could have asked for. All of the equipment they provide is clean and well looked after. The boats were in really good condition and fast to say the least.

Most definetly the best way to see the wild life and islands in the forth.

We booked with Calypso marine to go out and see the Queen Victoria as she had come up the forth on her maiden voyage. We left from North Queensferry, on time. the boat was incredibly clean and seats were comfortable. We were all offered waterproof jackets and Stewart was great and informative to all of the uestions we could throw at him. Once out in the forth Stewart slowed and stopped the boat so we could take photo's of the ship at many diefferent angles and I got some lovely shots. On our return to harbour we went under both of the forth bridges and Stwart opened up the boat and had us bouncing over the wakes which the children just loved. This wasn't our first trip with Calypso marine and certainly wont be our last.....many thanks to staff who were fantastic.

.I recently enjoyed a trip with Calypso Marine in the Forth to view the Cunard "Queen Victoria" cruise ship from very close quarters. We sailed from North Queensferry under the stunning Forth Bridges, and travelled out beyond the bridges and circled around the Queen Victoria which was anchored off-shore. An impressive sight! The Calypso Marine boat was immaculate and the crew member friendly and informative.
