The Highland Cross Seagull
Where We Are: 

Trips start and end at the Twin Jetties on the west bank of the Caledonian Canal, just off the A82, Glenurquhart Road and on the seaward side of the Tomnahurich Bridge, on the outskirts of Inverness. A nearby location for Satnav is  IV3 8JL.


Access to the Twin Jetties on the canal towpath is signposted, and opposite the Twin Jetties there is a small layby for parking. The towpath on the Goggle Map is called  Great Glen Way and the street photo of the Twin Jetties was taken in June 2008, so it shows our previous Boat the Highland Seagull.

Our Cruises: 

A maximum of 12 passengers can be carried on each cruise. The boat is equipped with a passenger lift and it also has a  toilet which accomodates wheelchairs. Passengers embark and disembark at the Twin Jetties where there is a small lay-by for parking vehicles. Access to the Twin Jetties is made via the tarred Canal Tow Path between the Canal and the Caravan site and it is sign posted.
We operate on the Caledonian Canal, cruising the 4.5 miles between Caley Marina & Dochgarroch, and welcome passengers from the Inverness area and all over the Highlands, from Aberdeen to Wick.
