Pirate Boats Ltd are private and commercial boat charter based on the River Tay estuary.  You can design your own River Tay experience or join them for the River Tay tour which departs from Broughty Ferry pier beside the castle.  You will then be taken along the River towards Dundee where you pass Dundee port (Forth Ports), City Quay and then past the Tay Road bridge where you will see the V&A Museum of design and the RSS Discover ship.  The tour will then head over to the Fife side of the Tay and pass Tayport and the Pile lighthouse.  You may also be greeted by lots of friendly dolphins along the tour so make sure to take your camera.

The objective of the job was to provide an aerial drone video following the boat tour along the River Tay and also some onboard footage to show the happy customers.

This was then to be edited and used on social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Linked in to thank everyone who took part and also raise awareness for next years event.

Drone photography can really help to capture the spirit of your promotion. Viewing from above gives the video a fresh perspective and allows angles that aren’t possible using traditional photography.

Drone video will delight your customers and get them talking about your service to friends, family and on social media which helps to spread the word FAST.

You’ve probably heard or read a lot in the press about unlicensed, unapproved drone operators that work without insurance or due care and attention; employing one of these companies is dangerous and potentially illegal. All UK pilots must have a BNUC-S or RPQ-S qualification, CAA Permission for Aerial Work and Public Liability insurance. Protect yourself and ask the operator if you are unsure, any approved operator should be happy to show you his ID, and approvals. We are.
