With cruise ships having issues all over the world in the last 12 months Jacobite Cruises decided it was done risking not having some very vital insurance.

The cruise company which takes sightseers all around the famous loch in Scotland looking for one of the worlds most famous mythical creatures.  The company bought an insurance deal with Towergate Moray Firth last week to protect them if their tours get the ultimate payoff.

Jacobite owner Freda Newton told The Scottish Sun: “I don’t know what the odds of this actually happening might be but this is Loch Ness and how silly would we look if it did and we weren’t covered for it?

“I hope we never have to make a claim and if Nessie does make another appearance, she gives our boats a wide berth.” Bob Jack, director of Towergate Moray Firth, said: “This is probably the most unusual insurance request we have ever had, but we were delighted to provide cover to Jacobite Cruises.

“I’m sure everyone who sets sail on the loch would settle for a sighting of Nessie rather than a much closer encounter. We wish Jacobite, their passengers and crews many more happy voyages on the loch without any claims on this policy.”
