I spy with my little eye…some wild native dolphins out at large. Come up to Torry Battery, a prime location where you have the chance of spotting some of these beautiful creatures. Its harbour mouth is said to be one of the best places in Europe to find bottlenose dolphins, or perhaps if you are extra lucky, a whale! What better to do in Aberdeen than take a chance and see if you can spot marine wildlife in their natural habitat. Although just barely visible to the naked eye, telescopes and binoculars are available on site for you to use! On certain days throughout the year, the dolphin watch team staff and volunteers are there to welcome you and give you extra information on these beautiful creatures. So, what are you waiting for? 

Where can I dolphin watch in Aberdeen?

Drive or walk up to the breath-taking vantage point in Torry Battery and keep an eye out for the joyful jumps of the dolphins at sea! 

As this is a weather dependent activity, the team offer indoor activities related to dolphins. Not only that, but they offer various other events related to marine wildlife. All you have to do is check their website and see what they’ve got on. Whether you’re going in just for a dolphin watch session or are looking to know more about marine wildlife, Aberdeen has got you covered!
