See Inverness from the water on this comfortable family friendly boat tour and explore the Moray Firth. The Guide will tell you about any wildlife seen from the cruiser as it appears, along with the history and folklore too.
The Largest passenger Boat On The Moray Firth
” Spirit” is the boat to take you onto the waters of the Inner Moray Firth to see the Inverness from the water. She is classified as a “Motor Passenger Ferry”, which means she is specifically designed to carry people in comfort. Up to 70 people in fact. This is important from a conservation point of view. It means that there is the minimum possible disruption for marine life: There’s only one hull in the water, with only one set of propellers. The engines were selected for their low emissions and are connected to a specially configured low vibration drive train.
From the animals point of view, this is a quiet boat. At 12.89 metres long and just over 5 metres of the beam, she’s a decent size, which means comfort for you and your party.
The spacious cabin is fully carpeted and has upholstered seats. You’ll find the centre seats are raised to ensure the best visibility from within the craft. Which means everyone has a view, no matter where you choose to sit. The cabin windows are double glazed to guard against condensation. The outside spaces on the main and upper decks give you the opportunity for great views.
A faster Way to Travel On The Moray Firth
Mischief took to the waters of the Moray Firth in April 2017 and was immediately popular.
She offers a very different experience to her sister, Spirit. She goes further, faster, and offers a lot more excitement packed into each 2-hour sailing (whilst still observing wildlife-safe boat handling of course).
Mischief is a 9 meter RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat) equipped with two powerful Yamaha outboard motors. She is capable of high speeds, travelling beyond the confines of the Inner Moray Firth. She’ll take you through the narrows between Chanonry Point lighthouse and Fort George and out into the waters off Ardersier. Then back to Inverness.
