1 Hour Loch Ness Cruise

No trip to the Highland's is complete without experiencing the magic of Loch Ness. Join us aboard our unique vessel, Nessie Hunter, to see why the legend lives on with hourly cruises departing from Drumnadrochit.

Come enjoy Loch Ness the way it was meant to be enjoyed, without all the crowds! Our local skippers will show you Urquhart Castle, where the sighting hotspots are and much more. There's also plenty of time to ask questions as you'll be part of a group no larger than 12.

Aboard, we have indoor and outdoor seating areas and there's plenty of space to get uninterupted views of the dark waters and the stunning hillsides flanking the Loch. We also have all the latest devices to help us know whats going on under the water, with a brand new 3D sonar added in 2021.

For the unforgettable experience, we offer private cruises where you can have the boat and Skipper to yourself.
