We took the 90 minute rib tour and had a great time. We left Fort Augustus and went as far as Urquhart Castle, stopping several times on the way there and back to take in the beautiful scenery, flora and fauna. The guide and skipper were fun and knowledgeable, peppering their casual commentary with anecdotes and pointing out curious facts... More

Taking the boat cruise is the best way to see the lake. Nice history of the lake is discussed as well as the flora and fauna of the area. You end at a castle ruin before returning to dock. A touristy must do.

We joined the Nessie Hunting Trip tour and it was amazing. The tour lasted for about an hour, with the speed boat dashed along the Loch Ness. The tour guide was very friendly and informative, in which during the tour, he covered the wildlife, history, myth of Nessie and the geological background of the Loch Ness. Not scary at all,...

We did the Rib fast boat trip and it is a great way to see almost ALL of Loch Ness. Our guides were fun, knowledgeable and top notch all around. Thi is a MUST DO for the Loch Ness area.

Amazing 90 minutes speeding up and down the loch, suddenly any other boat rides will seem slow and dull now. Well recommended trip
