Great little tour that runs out of the "town" and not the "Loch Ness Museum and Research Center". A small van picks you up at the information center and runs you over to a boat that holds about 12 people - a very nice guide (usually the same driver for van and boat!) takes you out on the Loch and...

We arrived without booking ahead and were lucky enough to book a same day boat trip. Captain George Edwards is the longest serving cruise boat captain on Loch Ness with expert knowledge and is incredibly passionate about the loch and its inhabitants. He really does have a superb stereotypical/Sean Connery accent - which my wife adored! His commentary is wonderful... More

Really enjoyed the cruise. I called really early in the morning to book for the same day and was surprised to see someone pick up! Lovely lady who was very helpful and friendly. The tour is awesome, there are sonar radars that you can look at on TVs, and the captain gives you a commentary about the Loch Ness, his... More

A one hour cruise packed with information from the skipper. Very knowledgeable and spent years on the Loch. Live commentary. Very friendly and interactive experience. The kids on the boat loved it. You will leave with a lot more knowledge of Loch Ness at the end. Highly recommended and you can book online.

This was a easy and fun one-hour cruise on Loch Ness. It was the right amount of time to be on the lake for the casual traveler. The driver/guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. Reserve your spot online. Highly recommended if you are staying in this area or are passing by.

The tour was great. We had perfect weather and the Loch was smooth as glass. We took wonderful pictures. I would suggest that you call ahead. It took me 3 tries to get a seat on the boat.

A boat tour of Loch Ness is a must because of all the mystery surrounding the tale of the Loch Ness Monster. Fun for all ages, you can sit outside and enjoy the fresh air, might be chilly so wear a jacket. Or sit inside where it is warm, there is a bar and café and enjoy the view through... More

My three kids (10, 8 & 7) along with my 65yr old parents enjoyed their cruise today. One hour was heaps for everyone to experience and keep the kids interested. Captain George was fantastic sharing his interesting stories and letting the kids steer the boat for a photo. The booking, locating the office and parking was easy. Thanks for having... More

This is an excellent way to view the Loch. The boats are very clean, with excellent facilities. The tour guide was very informative and could be heard clearly. There are several types of trips to choose from depending on what you want to do. I would highly recommend this experience.
