Meet the crew

Your skipper on Nessie Hunter is George Edwards, who in 1987 recorded the greatest known depth of Loch Ness at 812 feet or 248 metres - a part of the loch now known as "Edwards Deep". Despite claims by competitors and "so called Loch Ness Experts" that the readings were caused by sonar pulse bounces, this depth was verified in 2006, when George assisted in trials of G.A.P.S. (Global Acoustic Positioning Systems) by one of the worlds leading innovators of sonar technology. These tests were carried out by engineers using some of the most advanced sonar technology ever deployed in Loch Ness. In 1989 he became the skipper of the "world’s smallest aircraft carrier" when a giant hot air balloon, which whilst been used in the making of a television advertisement, had to make an emergency landing on Nessie Hunter.

He is now the longest serving passenger boat skipper on Loch Ness! He has appeared on numerous television documentaries and is recognised as one of the foremost authorities on the Loch Ness Phenomenon.
