We had such a fun time on this cruise. Beautiful scenery and such interesting commentary. My eight year old had quite a few questions and Ricky was amazing at answering them for him. He sat next to him and showed him pictures of different things he's seen and researched. It made such an impression on my son who is a... More

...this would have been a perfect way to spend an hour. Actually, it was almost perfect, and the rain did make it atmospheric :) There was a nice amount of interesting snippets of information given out but not so much that all you did was listen. We didn't go downstairs to watch the sonar as I get seasick inside, but... More

The rain did not stop this trip being excellent with an enthusiastic host telling us all sorts of stories, a great server behind the bar recommending fantastic whiskey and the general atmosphere. I would score perfect had the weather been better, which I understand can't be controlled haha. Anyway! Recommend guys, it's a fun way to fill an hour! And... More

Did not actually spot her but plenty of opportunities on board to include Nessie in the photo. Great hour long cruise with a good storyteller crewman. However done in Scottish English so some visitors may have difficulty although translation is available. Lovely scenery and a boat trip on a famous Loch....fabulous.

This was a great way to spend an hour and we were taken care of by the very entertaining storytelling staff. The boat was big enough with a bar and great viewing decks with a very informative commentry. All in a great experience.

We took this cruise during a highland tour. The guys on board were very friendly and witty, the boat was great for the job and in great condition. The outbound leg was very informative and nice and close to the bank to allow wildlife to be spotted. The guide on that day had a great way of putting things in... More

Booked early - thankfully as it was very busy. A great two hour trip going up the loch. The guys who hosted the trip were exceptionally enthusiastic, amusing and informative. The views up and down were brilliant - with the guides advising on what to look out for. Wildlife in abundance - but if you're an enthusiastic photographer get on... More

Unexpected highlight of our trip - on a rainy February day this trip was a ray of sunshine. The staff are just brilliant, most charismatic young men who looked after our group wonderfully. Fantastic guided tour, great sense of humour.

Had a great visit on Loch Ness today with fantastic staff onboard Rebel. Linda was fabulously informative about the Loch and other local knowledge. She had us all enthralled. Would recommend this trip to anyone wanting to learn more about the Loch.
