We depart from the beautiful village of Drumnadrochit (click here for directions) . You’ll be directed to our pickup point by our friendly staff in Celtic Crafts, which is where you’ll collect your tickets, and also have a chance to see some of the finest crafts and gifts made in the local area. At our pickup point, you’ll meet your skipper for the cruise, and they’ll whisk you down to the local harbour where they’ll assist you in boarding the Nessie Hunter. And then the fun really begins!

We’ll head out and our skippers will start their live commentary. We’ll head to the deepest point of Loch Ness, show you the marker posts used by John Cobb during his water speed record attempt, tell you all the secrets of Urquhart Castle and of course our skippers will tell you all about our shy monster, they may even tell you some first hand stories about their own sightings!



Although there are no toilets aboard the Nessie Hunter, there are toilet facilities at our pickup point (Nessieland)

Now it may be hard to believe but its not always sunny in Scotland! We always recommend having a quick look at the weather forecast and wearing something appropriate but don’t worry too much, we’ve got a warm, indoor cabin.

Whilst the Nessie Hunter is not wheelchair accessible, our skippers will always go out of their way to accommodate anyone with mobility issues, where possible. As an independent family business, we strongly believe Loch Ness should be enjoyed by all, and our skippers have a wealth of experience helping people with a wide range of disabilities.


Whether you’re young, old or in between, there’s something on the Nessie Hunter for everyone. If your idea of a perfect day is to get your feet up and watch the world go by, you’ll be right at home on our comfortable couch on our aft deck. For a bit more excitement, head up to our flybridge, and get uniterupted 360 views of Loch Ness. We think our younger guests will be spoilt for choice, whether they want to borrow our skippers binoculars or view our brand new 3D sonar, there’ll always be something to keep them looking for our elusive monster. If weather and traffic allow, our skippers will often invite them up to the captains chair for a picture with the captains hat!
