Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: An educational, fun boat tour on the largest tour boat on the Moray Firth. Your personal guide will give you insightful commentary about the local wildlife, history, folklore and attractions. While on board you will have the opportunity to possibly see otters, seals, red kites, ospreys, herons and, with a stroke of luck, the resident bottlenose dolphins which all make use of the firth. Tours run at 10am, 12pm, 2pm and 4pm every day, weather permitting. The trip is roughly 1 hour and 20 minutes long, going between the Beauly Firth and Inverness Firth.

Brian and Steven were great, nice day and nice trip, although my daughter was very disappointed to only see 1 dolphin tail for a split second. As with anything like this, sighting the animals isn't guaranteed and the gents were very nice to let the kids drive the boat, talk about Scouting, etc.

Hello jlzslp,

Thank you for your review.

We will definitely pass your comments onto Brian and Steven, and we're delighted to hear you enjoyed the trip. Unfortunately, as you say, the Moray Firth Dolphins are wild, so we cannot guarantee sightings. I'm glad to hear that the children were able to drive the boat - we look forward to having them as skippers one day!

Best wishes,
Yvette

My partner and I went on the Dolphin Mischief earlier this month and were kitted out with life jackets and waterproofs by Steve with George driving the rig. Both were friendly, professional and knowledgeable, not only about the dolphins, but the area and local history. The trip was 2 hours and we saw 3 or 4 seals on a bank, a gannet and a heron along with sightings of several dolphins near Fort George on the way back to the marina.

I would recommend Dolphin Spirit to anyone for a great experience. There was plenty of free parking as well.
