Dolphin Spotting on the Moray Firth

See the world’s most northerly population of bottlenose dolphins, making their home on the Inverness coastline. Spend approximately 75 minutes on the water looking out for these incredible animals. Your trip won’t be limited to just dolphins. You will also be able to spot otters, seals and a wide range of sea birds. You can sometimes catch a glimpse of harbour porpoises and rarely a whale! Tours travel up the Beauly Firth towards Caledonian Canel before heading out to the Inverness Firth under the Kessock Bridge and out as far the Munlochy Bay before heading back to the marina.
