What a lovely tour. Small group so easy to listen and ask questions. Saw the castle from far away and up close. Learned all about the history of Loch Ness and Nessie, with lots of detail preparing us for our stop to the exhibition centre.

Good boat trip, dogs allowed and friendly staff onboard. Make sure you ask a lot of questions as the staff are very knowledgable about the loch.

Good value for an hours family entertainment. The skipper was very friendly and knowledgeable and answered all questions fielded to him even in Spanish for foreign visitors! Would recommend this cruise very highly.

You may want to reach out to them directly at their website. You can easily find their site by googling "Castle Cruises Loch Ness". They have a "Contact Us" page with an enquiry form.

Dogs are very popular here in Scotland and seem to go everywhere with people, but you should call to ask. We had a duck join our boat ride but no other animals.
