Splash out with a watery sea life adventure when you go dolphin watching in Scotland! Take to the seas near Inverness with our dolphin cruises and discover the beauty of these sleek and graceful marine mammals. If the spectacular mountain scenery of the Scottish Highlands doesn’t take your breath away, the sight of Bottlenose Dolphins swimming alongside the boat certainly will.
Your wave skimming session begins at Cromarty, a town on the Black Isle located only a few miles from the regional capital of Inverness. From here, dolphin cruises depart regularly out into the Moray Firth, one of the hottest dolphin watching locations in Scotland. Tours have been running here since 2004, so the team have a lot of experience in finding the best sites for spotting them!
For the duration of your cruise you’ll be in the capable hands of skipper Sarah as she navigates the open waters of the firth at speeds of up to 25 knots, even the boat ride itself is an exhilarating experience as you go in search of the resident colony of dolphins enjoying life in these Scottish waters. A whole range of creatures make their home in the Moray Firth, so as well as watching out for the dolphins that inhabit the Inverness channel, you’ve also got a good chance of catching a glimpse of Harbour Porpoises, Common and Grey Seals, along with as a huge variety of sea birds who nest on the rugged coastlines. If you’re lucky and the weather holds, you might even be able to use a hydrophone to listen to the echoing underwater sounds that dolphins and other mammals make.
In the summer months, Minke Whales have been known to pay a visit too, making this dolphin watching experience an all round sea life extravaganza off the coast of Scotland. The centre is an accredited operator with the Dolphin Space Programme, a local voluntary code of conduct designed to safeguard the welfare and future of the cetaceans in the Moray Firth. This means that all dolphin watching cruises run by the team are designed to avoid disturbing these marvellous creatures any more than necessary, though, as everyone knows, dolphins are incredibly friendly animals and need no encouragement to come and say hello!
If you’re fascinated by these elegant mammals and would love the chance to see them thriving in their natural habitat, this Inverness dolphin cruise is the experience for you. And if you’d like to turn your wildlife spotting into a minibreak, why not combine dolphin watching in Scotland with an exploration of the Highlands? This fintastic region offers something for everyone, from animal lovers to whisky connoisseurs, and a visit here is sure to have you whistling for joy in no time at all.
