Powerboat Adventures, Marine Training, and Commercial Services

Edinburgh Marine Academy is a maritime training centre of excellence, located in South Queensferry, just outside Scotlands capital city.  We offer marine training for all ages and levels of experience, from entry level junior powerboating courses, to courses for those looking for a career in the maritime sector.  We take pride in our state of the art purpose built powerboats, but we can also offer training in your vessel at your location.

We also offer an exhilarating and memorable variety of  fast boat trips leaving from our base in South Queensferry.  Trips include 1 hour trips around the three iconic Firth of Forth bridges, and longer trips to see the Islands and wildlife of the Firth of Forth.  Group trips and bespoke bookings are welcomed, please contact us by phone or email with your enquiry.
