Welcome to Caley Cruisers!
We operate a large fleet of modern, high quality motor cruisers, all fully equipped and available for weekly or short-break self charter cruises on Loch Ness and the Caledonian Canal. With 28 vessels and a range of 10 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. Our existing fleet is specifically designed for our unique waterway, each vessel being fitted out at our premises in Inverness.
Based in Inverness, 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.
Our beautiful Kintail class was featured on Channel 4's "Great Canal Journeys" with Timothy West & Prunella Scales. Kintail, and every other vessel on our fleet, was fitted out by our own team and is specifically designed for our unique cruising area. 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.
Established in 1970, we celebrate our 50th anniversary as a family business this year, and during our many years of operation we have introduced thousands of couples and families to the splendours of the Great Glen. No previous boating experience or licence are necessary (approximately one third of our customers are completely new to boating) and we provide a comprehensive handover with 24 hour support service during your stay. 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 - we would be delighted to assist.
