Whether it be the mystery of the Loch Ness monster, the stunning scenery, or the history, we want to get you up close and personal with it all. Climb aboard our brand new 12-seater RIB at Dochgarroch Lock, and launch yourself onto the water for an 80-minute-long Loch Ness speed boat tour. The aim of our tour is to get you “As Close As You’ll Get” to capturing everything that makes Loch Ness so famously magnificent.
Hear captivating stories about the famous sites and landmarks including Urquhart Castle, and that elusive monster, too!
Breathe the fresh highland air and listen to some of Scotland’s best music as you skim over the surface of the water.
Have a bit of fun, let’s show you what this boat can really do. Let’s just say it is pretty cool!
Summer 2020 isn’t what is should have been! But that doesn’t mean it is cancelled. We are operating on a private hire basis only until September 2020.
Sailings will (hopefully) resume as normal from April 2021
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).
A flick of the tail, a roar, and a spray of white water. Then the beastie leaves all in her wake as

Summer 2020 is not what it should have been! In order to keep you safe we will be operating on a private hire basis only. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org to make your booking.
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. We are not able to provide you with wetsuits but will be providing lifejackets. Please ensure you are wrapped up warm – even on the hottest of days, Loch Ness can have a chill!
The minimum age for our tours is 5 years old. Children under 15 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Please contact us directly – email@example.com to arrange a private tour for Summer 2020.
Due to COVID-19 we are not able to provide you with waterproof suits. We will provide you with lifejackets. Please ensure you wrap up warm – even on the hottest of days Loch Ness can have a chill! We also recommend you bring a change of clothes with you as you are in the ultimate plash zone!
Warm clothes are required for your tour – waterproofs will be better!
Bring a change of clothes with you should you happen to sitting in a splash zone area.
Yes, of course! Make that Instagram profile so much stronger and remember to use our #beastieboats
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!
We require a minimum 48-hour notice to amend/cancel a booking.
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.
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.
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.
