What can I say. An absolutely fantastic cruise with the best captain ever. He's a mine of information and any questions (no matter how stupid) we're answered very knowledgeably. He obviously loves his job and it shows. We went out on quit a choppy day and it was FUN. Our ages ranged from 11 to 55 and I would have... More

We stopped off at Drumnadrochit on our way to Skye so we could see a bit of Loch Ness. We were able to easily book our trip at the gift shop near the village green after seeing it advertised at the visitor centre across the road. Our skipper was punctual and very knowledgeable about the loch and the various myths.... More

We've been on this cruise twice now, and it can't be beat. We chose it the first time because they allowed our dog along. She's a big girl, but it was early in the season (March 2014) without any other tourists on the cruise with us. This alone was fabulous, just the 4 in my family plus our dog. Dick... More

The biggest difference between the many Loch Ness cruises is whether you want to go on a boat that holds 12 people or a boat that holds 150 passengers. We had already taken the larger boat years ago and opted for the smaller more personal cruise this time. This is the way to go to explore the loch! The captain... More

I originally planned to take a different Loch Ness cruise and only stumbled onto this one when I saw it advertised in a shop across from the information center. What a find! This cruise is on a tiny boat, that is nothing fancy. The Gentlemen who runs the cruise (Dick) was an original researcher who moved to Loch Ness in... More

This was the best little cruise I have experienced. The gentleman is a young man in his seventies with a sense of adventure, the gift of the gab and extraordinarily personable. He is well travelled himself but easy to be with and fun. He is a member of the Loch Ness Life Guard, and the life guard boat dwells near... More

We went on a boat trip on loch ness on a very sunny afternoon. The trip with castle cruise was very good. We were picked up from the main carpark by the visitor centre and driven to the boat. The man who ran the tour was friendly and personable and had a lot of information to share about the lake... More

We loved this little trip. Our guide was very friendly and informative. Kids got a chance to "drive the boat" which they loved. Beautiful scenery and very relaxing to be on the water
