Certificate of Excellence

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.

Had an excellent trip on the Spirit , we were escorted out of the harbour by two dolphins, saw seals and a variety of bird life. The staff were excellent, facilities modern and bright and the boat clean and comfortable. I would have no hesitation in recommending this trip, they can cater for the very young, not so young and your family dog! An hour and a half well spent.

I have done a few similar boat trips around Scotland but this is by far the best! George was a great skipper knowlegable on the local area and wildlife. Plenty of dolphins in the area on the day too. Thanks again and will see you soon. Kevin

The cruise was very good and we got to see both dolphins and a seal. We also got to view the lovely scenery around the firth. Would strongly recommend!

Hello Edvin,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review.

We're delighted that you feel we are a 5 star trip, it is fantastic you were able to dolphins and seals! Inverness is a lovely place and it's nice to see it from a different perspective sometimes too!

Best wishes,
Yvette

We were looking for something to do that allowed us to take our dog along
The trip was great and we were able to take our dog with with us. And we got to see the Dolphins too. Staff were very helpful and informative with the guide. Would highly recommend it if your looking for something to do for a couple of hours with or without a dog. Value for money too.
