While we did not see any otters or dolphins, the tour oriented us to the geology and ecology of the area. It was a pleasant outing, although there may have been more distinctive ways to use our limited time in Inverness.

We went on the cruiser boat for a 75 minute trip. The guide told us lots of interesting facts about the wildlife and scenery. We spotted two dolphins, a red kyte and a seal. Most of all it was a very relaxing experience.More

Avril, our cruiser “Dolphin Spirit” is very stable and does not move much in rough weather, I think it will be suitable for you. Please come along and I am sure we can accommodate your needs. Thank you Yvette
