What You Can Expect
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 tour. I would recommend it. The tour guide was cool and told us a lot about history, especially about Titanic, of course. Only the 'shop' where we had to exchange our voucher for tickets wasn't that easy to find.
Wonderful relaxing boat ride with interesting and informative commentary.
Saw seals! Thought that was amazing. The driver was super careful in their area, cutting the engines so not to scare them on the shore, I thought that was really well done.
There wasn't anywhere on board to buy a drink, and the seats were a little basic, but it was truly a great experience and I'd easily recommend people take an hour out of their day to see it.
