Know More about this tour

Hop aboard your sightseeing boat at Belfast’s Donegal Quay and cruise down the River Lagan, seeing city sights and learning of its rich history. A busy international port since the early 18th century, Belfast boasts a catalog of nautical sites that are crying out to be seen.

Glide past the drawing offices of Harland and Wolff, Belfast's famous shipbuilders, who designed the Titanic, and then see the ship's modern-day equivalent – the impressive Titanic Visitor Experience. Pass Custom’s House, a magnificent building that represents the changing face of the city; once a gathering place for angst-ridden trade unionists, it’s now a vibrant hub and theater venue for the local community.

Proceed down the length of the Titanic slipways – where the fated boat first touched water back in 1911 – and pass Titanic Film Studios, where scenes from hit UK television productions like Game of Thrones have been filmed. Cruise alongside Northern Ireland Science Park, home to Titanic’s Dock and Pump House, and hear how the dock was the Titanic's last resting place on dry ground. From the slipways, continue to Alexandra Docks, home of Belfast’s famous battleship – the HMS Caroline. As the last surviving ship of the 1917 Battle of Jutland in World War I, she’s a poignant reminder of Belfast’s crucial navy role during the world wars.

Proceeding to The Turning Circle on the edge of Musgrave Channel, to see Northern Ireland’s largest seal breeding colony (summer months only), and then head down Stormont Wharf, Ireland’s longest deep-water quay that measures just over half a mile (1km) in length. See glossy cruise liners berthed next to old cargo ships – perfectly illustrating the city’s departure from its industrial roots to one of Northern Ireland’s most exciting destinations!

Your boat ride finishes at Donegal Quay after an hour on the water.

  • Nice cruise on the river Lagan. Views on the Titanic quarter. Discovery of a part of the docks. Seals can be visible. The landscape farther is green. It's entertaining.

  • very enjoyable and very informative

  • Tour was good, boat tacky. Need to upgrade interior of boat.

  • Was a lovely trip down Belfast loch, very informative and the skipper was friendly. Was a lovely relaxing time. Will definitely do this again.

  • Very nice. We had good weather. Guide hard to understand at times.

  • The boat was clean, the crew was friendly, hospitable, nice and knowledgeable and the tour itself was very informative. We're a young couple with two kids age 6 and 3 and we all loved it. We had been to Titanic Belfast and SS Nomadic the day before learning all that we thought there was to learn about Titanic. It was therefore a massive surprise learning even a lot more on this trip.

  • Cold and rainy, but my grandson, who is very interested in the Titanic, found the tour guide most informative. Nice to see the seals back!

  • I had so much fun and got to see more than I expected to see. My tour guide was an absolute sweetheart. Thank you so much for fulfilling my long-time dream and may peace remain in Northern Ireland. Maria Darvell
