Caledonian Canal Cruises


Join us on one of our

Caledonian Canal Cruises

A cruise along the Caledonian Canal is a most enjoyable trip which takes advantage of Scotland’s calm inland waters whilst exploring some of her finest scenery.   


in 2024 we offer 3 opportunities to travel the Caledonian Canal. For two of our cruises you can join the Nova Spero in Inverness and travel down the Caledonian Canal taking either 3 or 5 days. Along the way we'll take in Dochgarroch , Loch Ness, Urqhuart Castle, Fort Augustus and Neptunes Staircase. We also offer one trip from Fort William to Inverness along the canal.

The nature of our cruises is to provide a “theme” and to make the most of the options available to us based on weather, tides, access and things like local events & festivals.

Food & Drink

We include breakfast, lunch and dinner each day of your cruise.  Our cook will use the finest locally sourced produce, fresh from suppliers to deliver mouthwatering dishes.

Dinner will be the main meal of the day and will be served between 6pm and 7pm in sheltered anchorage or in harbour.  If we are still on the move we can dine if the water is calm or wait until we reach sheltered waters.  The other meals of the day require more flexibility as the boat may be moving depending on our schedule for the day.

A bar with wines, beers and spirits will be available.


Scotland’s waters and coasts are a playground for a wide variety of wildlife from minke whales & porpoises to puffins and sea eagles.   Binoculars and cameras are recommended.

Visitor Attractions

At the start of each cruise the captain will meet with the all of the guests to discuss the planned route for your cruise which will take into account tides and weather.  We will endeavour to visit some of Scotland’s finest distilleries, castles and attractions from suitable nearby mooring.

Walking & Mountaineering

There will be plenty of opportunity to explore Scotland’s hills and mountains so bring along your walking/hiking equipment.
