The Wee Beastie

ALL ABOUT  THE COOLEST BOAT ON THE LOCH

The Wee Beastie arrived brand new to the shores of Loch Ness in 2018. It has an all-black look to make it the coolest vessel ever to set-sail on Loch Ness. The hull was designed and produced by Humber Inflatables. The vessel was then fitted by Quinquari Marine in South-West Wales.  This RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat) can seat up to 12 passengers at a time, and has been fitted with Twin 200HP Evinrude engines capable of speeds of more than 40 knots (45mph).

FAQ’S

Everything You Need To Know

Do I need to book?

Booking in advance is highly recommended, especially during the peak holiday periods as demand is high and we have a maximum number of 12 seats on our boat. You can book on this website or by calling 01463 233999. You can also purchase tickets on arrival at the ticket office or on www.jacobite.co.uk

What time do I arrive?

Please ensure you check-in 15 minutes before your scheduled departure time in order to get kitted out. All our sailings leave on time so as not to impact later departures or other passengers on our tour.

Is there an Age Restriction?

The minimum age for our tours is 5 years old. Children under 15 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

When do you operate?

Our 4 daily scheduled sailings are available from the 26th March – 30th September 2018. Outside this period please contact us if you would like to arrange a private trip or any commercial requirements you may have.

What should I wear?

Full waterproofs, goggles and lifejackets are provided on our tour. We would recommend dressing warmly as temperatures can get quite cold when you are travelling fast! Gloves and hats would also be a good idea! Trainers or other non-slip footwear are recommended, and no high heels are allowed.

Will I get wet?

As you will be kitted out in our waterproofs, and (weather permitting) you should leave as dry as when you came on!

Can I take pictures with my phone or camera?

Yes, of course! Make that Instagram profile so much stronger and remember to use our #beastieboats

Will I get seasick?

It is incredibly rare for anyone to feel seasick on The Wee Beastie. Our speedboat sits low in the water and the motion shouldn’t be too severe. Plus, we are in a Loch, not in the sea!

Can I change my booking?

We require a minimum 48-hour notice to amend/cancel a booking.

Do trips ever get cancelled?

Very occasionally we may have to cancel your tour with us. Passenger enjoyment and safety is our highest concern and if we feel weather conditions on the day are unsuitable we will cancel the sailing.

What happens if my trip is cancelled?

If we have to cancel your trip for any reason, any payment you have made for your tour will be refunded in full, or we will try to be able to accommodate you on the next available one that suits.

What if I’m pregnant or have a back problem?

Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate those who are pregnant or have back problems. Even on calm days if the weather changes or there is an unpredictable wave – motions could occur. For that reason we don’t recommend our tours for anyone with these conditions.
