We went out on the 90 minute RIB boat tour out of Fort Augustus, and had a blast! Our driver and tour guide, Marcus, was so much fun and SO knowledgeable about Loch Ness, how it came to be, the history, and all the wildlife that thrive there. I didn't expect taking a boat ride out on the loch to be that much different from seeing it from the shore, but the experience was incredible and the views were unbeatable. We were able to see great views of Urquhart Castle from the water and to be sitting on Loch Ness, looking down the Great Glen, felt pretty amazing. After a nice smooth ride out to Urquhart Castle, with stops for pictures and a look for wildlife, Marcus turned up the speed on the way home, hopping wakes and giving us some tight turns that had you hanging on! So much fun! In addition, Marcus and the other staff were amazingly generous and flexible in making it possible for my fiance, who is paralyzed, make it onto the boat. It was a "first" for the staff and they were amazingly accommodating (and strong!), and we are so thankful they made it possible for us to share in this awesome experience. Also a thank you to the others on board who were patient and flexible :) Thanks for the great memories!

Had a great speed boat trip to Urquat Castle from Fort Augustus. The booking via Laura was very efficient and the boys on the boat made the trip fun for us and the kids. Well worth doing if you want to catch a glimpse of Nessie ........ And witness the splendour of Loch Ness

Our family went on the Nessie Monster hunt trip. It was on one of the RIB's ( small fast boat, can't remember what RIB stands for).

It was an excellent experience with very good guides.

It is quite a rough ride. My son (7) didn't enjoy it, my daughter (9) loved it.

An exhilarating experience. Highly recommended as a quick tour of the Loch Ness.

Went today 12 noon on fast rib - weather was fantastic but I don't think we would've needed to worry as the crew guys made sure we were all wrapped up & suitable kitted out to cope with any adverse conditions - a safety briefing was informative but kept fun whilst still making sure we all understood.
Off we went & viewed the stunning scenery whilst being kept informed of as much local information as we could absorb from our 2 crew, (the banter between them added to the overall enjoyment) although the scenery & the loch should be the stars of the show these guys came as a close runner.
Fabulous value & a great couple of hours spent - thanks !!
Thoroughly recommended for visitors & locals !

Wonderful cruise with an option to be inside or out. Beverages and bar on board. Nice stable boat as I'm not the best of sailors! Great views of Urquhart castle with an option to stop off for an hour if you wanted to.
