With a range of 11 different styles to choose from, whichever boat you choose, you can be assured it will be the perfect vantage point to explore 60 miles of Europe’s most beautiful inland waterway. The spectacular scenery, combined with a beautiful cruiser and our first class service will ensure your holiday with Caley Cruisers is one of the most memorable and enjoyable experiences you will ever have. We are sure you will find the ideal boat to suit your party whether your looking for something to suit a couple, family or large group.
We are based in Inverness which is in the north-east of Scotland. This is both the pick up and return point for all cruises with us. Conveniently located just a few minutes drive from the city centre, we are just 2 miles from Inverness Train Station and 10 miles from Inverness Airport.
Established in 1970, we are a family business and during our 46 years in operation we have introduced thousands of couples and families to the splendours of the Great Glen. No previous boating experience or licence are necessary, as we provide a comprehensive handover and 24 hour support service during your stay. Approximately one third of our customers are completely new to boating. You will find a lot of detailed information about our boats, cruising area and our service contained within this website and we hope it provides the answer to any questions you may have, however please please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any specific queries and we would be delighted to assist.
We are exceptionally busy this season (2017) and many of our boats are now fully booked for almost the entire season. 2018 is booking up fast, especially for vessels like Kintail and Torridon, so we do recommend you book as soon as you can. We have now also enabled the booking system to accept booking for 2019. [Update for 2018+ season]
We look forward to hearing from you!
