My dad and I enjoyed this boat tour. It might not be the longest tour you can get of the Loch, but it was very informative. We had a beautiful day on the water - great for pictures.The captain brought us right up alongside Urquhart Castle which was neat to see from the water. Good value for the price.

The owners George and Lenora Edwards, this to me was breathtaking the captain of the cruiser was very informative. He knew everything there was to know about this famous loch. Part of the loch was named after him after he discovered the deepest part of the loch. We never did see Nessie but the information we learnt will always be... More

Loved it! Our skipper was very knowledgeable and super fun. It was a lovely trip with a small group. A nice day with calm water and sunshine. Well worth the 30£. We heard history, saw castle ruins and rode the wake of other boats.

Whilst in Loch Ness we decided no trip would be complete without a chance to go in the Loch and look for Nessie! Picked up in a wer bus and taken to the harbour where we got on the boat! Lovely, relaxing way to spend an hour! Skipper was very informative and had plenty of stories! The only complaint being... More

We chose this boat tour as it was an easy drive from Inverness and the reviews made it sound just what we were looking for. We were not disappointed. The whole service was very good and although George was off today, we had a great trip with Colin. We highly recommend the Celtic Crafts shop itself - so many lovely... More

The Captain Edwards on this cruise has been on the lake for 40+ years. Even a trench in the lake is named after him! He has photos on-board showing Nessie. The boat is comfortable with both indoor and outdoor seats as well upstairs open-air seats. This was a really nice cruise going next to Urquhart Castle. Of course the weather... More
