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.

Went on the afternoon (4pm) tour on 03/06, with Sue and Brian. The weather was beautiful blue skies and was a perfect backdrop to the boat ride. Sue was the perfect tour guide, giving us interesting and informative commentary throughout the 1.5 hour ride. It was looking unlikely we’d see any dolphins but just as we were about to turn into the docks, we saw one in the distance!! Highly recommend this tour company, a must do for any trip to Inverness.
There’s plenty of parking on-site, but it’s also possible to walk there from the city centre as I did - it took about 25 mins. The staff also operate a minivan to drop people to/from the centre, which I took on the way back and was very grateful for!

We went for a trip on the dolphin mischief today and what a fantastic experience we had! The rib was brilliant fun, We toured the moray Firth at different speeds for two whole hours looking for dolphins which we saw loads of (very lucky!) as well as seals and lots of sea birds. we felt the trip was fantastic value for money. An Extremely professional company who are passionate about the area and the sealife/wildlife within. Don’t agree with the recent review at all, the skipper was very respectful of the dolphins and kept a safe distance of them. Highly recommend a trip and will be taking visiting family and friends (as I did today) as I live locally to this brilliant service!
