You may want to reach out to them directly at their website. You can easily find their site by googling "Castle Cruises Loch Ness". They have a "Contact Us" page with an enquiry form.
Do they allow dogs on boat trip

Dogs are very popular here in Scotland and seem to go everywhere with people, but you should call to ask. We had a duck join our boat ride but no other animals.
