  Samson...or Goliath
by St_Vincent

There are two boat tours run by the Lagan Boat Company depending on which day it is. On Friday to Monday you can take the Titanic Tour around the Harland and Wolff shipyards where the Titanic was built. Exactly why they would want to bring attention to the fact that they built that most famous of vessels that sank on it?s maiden voyage I have no idea, but they do. The other tour runs Tuesday to Thursday and is a 75 minute trip up the Lagan River to Stranmillis Pool and back.

Both tours are accompanied by a commentary and you?ll also get to see the two massive yellow cranes in the shipyard that are affectionately known as Samson and Goliath.

Sailings are at 12.30pm, 2pm and 3.30pm and cost 10 for adults and 8 concessions (May 08). Family tickets and joint tickets with the City Bus Tour are also available.

Address: Along the Lagan river.
Directions: Departures from the Langan Lookout at Donegall Quay - Look for the large fish sculpture
