We did the 90 minute RIB boat tour - what can I say other than amazing. My partner was intially hesitant but she walked off wanting to go again. You see a lot more of the Loch and we had two great guides (Tony and Markus) who put everyone at ease, were funny and provided good commentary on local history,... More

Took the one hour slow cruise from Fort Augustus. Had a nice day so lovely views all around. Staff friendly and knowledgeable and good commentary on the history of the Loch. Boat equip with sonar too to show how deep the loch is and what the terrain is like under the water.

The cruise that we took organized by the hotel that we stayed. We just have to hop on the van provided and the driver took us to the boat place. On the cruise, the driver told some stories about the Loch Ness project, the Nessie monster and the Urquhart Castle that can be seen from the loch. It was a... More

A trip to Loch Ness wouldn't be the same without a boat ride. As we had our dog with us we could not go in the carpeted saloon area. One of the tour guides dried off the outside seating area on the boat to allow our party to stay together. A sound track of the history of Loch Ness was... More

3 of us went on this and thankfully weather was kind.its reasonably priced and was a great way to see the loch. The boat has great information on points of the loch and you can get drinks from the lower deck.The staff were helpful assisting you on and off the boat.There is plenty of room and worth a go.

£13 for an hour boat trip on the Loch with information given whilst you go round. Very interesting and worth every penny.

1 hour cruise on Loch Ness with commentary was good but would have liked to go further up the loch. Booking online is not possible the night before but apparently they are updating the booking system. They wouldnt take our money until at least 10 people committed to the time we wanted - bit chicken and egg as this put... More

Took a 2 hour cruise on the lake. The guide/pilot gives a nice overview of how the lake was formed and of course information on the Loch Ness monster.

There is a tourist car park right next to petrol station/tourist info which is for free until next June 2016 the sign says. I booked the 1 hour boat trip online as I've previously called them up, and they advised me would be cheaper as get 10% off. If you book on the day is £13.50, online is £12.15 but... More
