We thoroughly enjoyed this trip o- an hour long. The commentary was brief, informative and witty. Staff very friendly. We were able to take our dogs and sit on deck outside which was fine on a dry day. It's cooler out on Loch in breeze so have coat.

A group of four of us went on the rib boat to castle. It was great fun and would definitely do it again. Our skipper was knowledgable of local history and information. It is a great way to see the loch!

We took the standard hour long cruise from Fort Augustus part way along Loch Ness, returning back to the starting point. It took an hour. You can sit inside or go upstairs for an outdoor's view. We did the latter, and were pleased with our choice until, that is, there was a sudden squall! It coincided with the guide's talk... More

Had a wonderful 1 hour cruise on Loch Ness, on a splendidly good weather day. Didn't see the monster but spectacular scenery and saw some goats on the loch side. The young lad that did the commentary was really good. Priced at £14 per adult, felt it was good value. Recommend

Travelling as a couple we booked a 1 hour cruise on Loch Ness for later that afternoon. When we arrived to board the boat there was a large queue of tourists off a couple of coaches. Once on board and we set sail a large number of our fellow passengers produced selfie sticks and took it in turns to stand... More

We had a lovely cruise on Loch Ness which took an hour. It was very sociable as we met a lot of people of different nationalities. The Loch was nice and calm for our trip but unfortunately we did not see Nessie!!

The cruise on the Loch ness is a very interesting trip. It is a hour long with the skipper pointing out different places of interest, then a young lad gives a talk on all about the Loch ness and its famous loch ness monster, very interesting and well worth the trip

Not so amazing as one could fantasize, but indeed very nice views, together with educating instruction on board. You can also follow the sonar's measurements online to learn about current depth (and it is very deep!! between 100 to 185 meters deep on the pathway of this cruise!). I would recommend.
