We were looking forward to our cruise on Loch Ness but unfortunately we visited on a dark & dreary day so we couldn't sit outside & the windows were steamed up so couldn't really see out. Loch Ness itself is a very dark eerie place which all adds to the mystery & although the tour guide tried his best to... More

Fantastic fun! Idyllic day in lovely Fort Augustus. Loch Ness was smooth as glass but this 90 minute RIB trip was an exhilarating but safe way to see the Fort Augustus to Urquhart Castle lower part of Loch Ness with plenty of speed and bumps! Friendly and knowledgeable pilots and guides who showed us a lot but didn't keep us... More

I'd read good reviews of the RIB tours and I'm sure they are great. But the standard one hour tour is disappointing. A pre-recorded talk on a tannoy system and just a simple lap around the lower part of the loch. It's pretty out there on the water but the tour itself was moatly boring and lacking in human interaction... More

We booked for the RIB trip on the Loch as and end to a great week in the Highlands and what a way to finish. We booked on the phone and parked in the town parking near the tourist info place. The set up is excellent and we were kitted out in our warm suits ready for the trip. We... More

nice tour, let down on the family friendly bit by whisky mccondoms which intrigued any children who could read as they weren't exactly discreet, sitting right next to stuffed Nessie's! We don't need those on a boat tour do we?

We all thoroughly enjoyed out trip on Loch Ness!! Seeing loads of wildlife on the south side of... More

The cruise was certainly the highlight of the Loch, we had the strangest weather - from hail, to fog to glorious sunshine.... all in 30 mins! Ricky, our captain, gave a very interesting and hilarious talk about the Loch, it's history and his love of Whisky (he must have shares in a distillery) . The on-board sonar was very interesting,...

The price for a family of four was about £38 and the tour lasts about an hour. Dogs are allowed on the boat, as long as they stay on e lead. Seating is available outside and inside. They do offer other cruises during the peak season which is April - September, including sunset cruises and RIBs. Overall I would recommend,... More
