We took the RIB trip and I can highly recommend it. 90 mins speeding around on the loch with an informative guide/driver whose enthusiasm was infectious. Avoid the front two seats if it's cold as the wind chill is extreme even in the nice warm suits they provide you with.

We took to the Loch on the RIB and it was amazing. 90 minutes of speed and fun from Fort Augustus to the Castle. There were a few stops on the way and Marcus (Our Captain) was informative and kept us entertained with facts and knowledge of local wildlife and history. I would highly recommend this if you are visiting... More

A ship crew member explained the legend of the Loch Ness monster thoroughly even with sonar demonstrations. I thought that was the best part of the cruise! The lake is very mysterious with murky waters so there was some element of curiosity and strangeness to being on the lake. Fort Augustus was also a neat little town to see. Enjoyed... More

brilliant 90 minute trip on the rib boat, £30pp. would definitely recommend this over the cruise boat that they run which looked crammed and uncomfortable with the tour busses that pile in. Tony was a brilliant skipper, knew loads about Loch Ness and we had a really good fun trip up to the castle and enjoyed stops along the way... More

140414 turned up at 10am for the sedate hour trip on Loch Ness to be told that they needed more people so we opted for the rib trip to the castle & back - gosh, so glad we did - it was fantastic!!! We were out for over an hour and a half so well worth the money. Can't recommend... More

Took an hour long Nessie Hunt speed boat trip with the kids. Fantastic fun and informative. The driver and copilot were good fun and took time to show us the sights and give information about the geography, wildlife etc. This was our second time on this trip and still great fun for the kids. Highly recommended...thank you guys

What a great way to spend an afternoon in January – cruising Loch Ness! We joined the 1-hour cruise on their Royal Scot boat, and it was really an outstanding experience, made more so by Rory, our guide that day. Not only was he knowledgeable and informative (and honest) about the loch and the monster, his humour was brilliant. There... More

Booked a speed boat trip last minute as we were staying on the loch. The guy was very informative and helpful and had great knowledge of the loch. The views were beautiful as you were speeding down on the water. Saw wild goats and wildlife. He stopped to allow us for plenty of photographs! Would recommend this to any one... More
