Went to Inverness and we took the hour cruise, staff very nice and polite. My grand daughter (4 years old)had so much fun. She was out side looking for Nessie and she came running in and shouted all happy and said " I seen the Loch Ness monster " what imagination. I am glad we took the cruise. And next... More

Had an enjoyable trip although the inside cabin did get a little over crowded during the sonar lecture. I'd recommend sitting on starboard side for best views.

One of the most enduring myths (or realities). Loch Ness itself is amazing and a cruise is almost a requirement. This boat has an open upper deck (best views but windy even on a calm day) as well as inside cabin. The skipper has a host of anecdotes and stories mixed in with solid facts about the loch, its size... More

The ferry has an open upper deck and the bottom part has see thru windows & enjoy some snacks & beverages. The ferry ride is very informative and the skipper is also very jovial & humourous. The scenery is okay for me & you will get to view Fort Augustus from afar & some mountain sheeps hanging along the ridges... More

As part of our National Holidays 5 day tour, we went on this cruise. The weather wasn't too bright but we still spent all the cruise outside on deck for taking snaps. Treated to the sight of a few low flying jet fighters zooming over the loch. Plenty of interesting commentary by the skipper, the hour flew by.

An hour trip on the 'Nessie Hunter', skipper gives a very good live talk on the history and points of interest. A must do trip if in Drumnadrochit.

I liked it very much, recommended to everyone. 14 pounds per head for 1 hour boat trip and you may see Urquhart Castle from the water. I think it is the best excursion one may have while you are visiting Drumnadrochit and Loch Ness.
