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.

What a great trip. We started with a briefing from the skipper John and kitted out in good quality warm waterproof clothing by Freya. The rib is far superior to anything I’ve been on before with plenty of seating space and I’m 6’3”. Within seconds of leaving the marina we saw two dolphins meters from us. We then went for our trip. Which was really comfortable even in windy conditions down to johns helm skills. En route Freya gave us information on the surrounding scenery and local historic sights. We then saw dolphins at fortrose.
I was delighted that John considered his crew comfort and safety and not the usual donuts and general showing off I’ve seen on other local trips. Shame we didn’t see the recent local star a fin whale but maybe next time. Recommended for all ages. Thank you to the team for a great experience!! Glenn

Hi GJskye,

Thank you for taking the time to leave such a lovely review.

We're delighted to hear that you had such an enjoyable experience with us, and although you didn't see the fin whale that had been spotted recently, you still saw dolphins! Your comments with regards to John and Freya will definitely be passed on, and I'm sure they'll be delighted to hear how much you appreciated their concern for both the guests on board but other staff members.

We hope that you'll come back and join us again soon!

Yvette
