What You Can Expect

Belfast Sightseeing Cruise: Titanic Quarter and River Lagan

Belfast Sightseeing Cruise: Titanic Quarter and River Lagan

See the best of Belfast’s maritime landmarks by boat! In the afternoon, head to Donegall Quay and board your sightseeing barge for the 1-hour trip down Belfast’s historic arterial waterway, the River Lagan. 

Along the cruise, catch impressive views of Belfast’s key nautical landmarks and enjoy fascinating facts and histories – such as the Titanic story – shared by your lively guide. See the Harland and Wolff drawing offices, where the Titanic was designed. Then pass the Northern Ireland Science Park, the magnificent Titanic Quarter, a tributary museum built on the site of the ship launch, and Titanic Film Studios, where scenes from the popular Game of Thrones TV series have been filmed. 

Cruise by the Titanic slipways en route to Alexandra Docks for a dose of Belfast’s naval history. View the HMS Caroline, a beautifully restored navy battleship that is celebrated as the last surviving ship from the Battle of Jutland in 1917, before you head to Stormont Wharf in Belfast Harbour.  Marvel at the enormous ships – from massive new cruise liners to industrial cargo ships – that dock in this deep water berth. Along the way to Stormont, your boat passes through the Musgrave Channel, where summer visitors may see Northern Ireland’s largest seal breeding colony.

Your tour loops back to the launch point on Donegal Quay, where you will disembark.

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!

These folks were great to deal with.
when I booked this on my phone I had typed in the wrong date. I called them a few days later and explained my situation. They assured me to just come that day I wanted and they would work us in. We arrived the day that it worked best for our schedule and were granted access to the boat right away. A class act to work with. Thanks so much

No frills but enjoyable trip. Small boat but as only 5 of ya on board we were able to swap around from top deck or under cover . It was a cold day but we got to take pics and see where Titanjc was launched from . Good commentary and good value for money .
