The Adventures

We currently have a choice of two boat trips offering excursions into the Moray Firth.  The  Mischief is a 2 hour trip that heads out looking for and often finding dolphins. We can also spot other wildlife like sharks, whales and porpoise and well as the local seabirds. Our Inverness Spirit cruiser travels through beautiful scenery taking in the Beauly Firth and the Black Isle while listening to tales of folklore and local history and is a 1hr, 15min trip. From July 2024 our Spirit Cruiser trip will be replaced by our Dolphin Spirit wildlife cruise on our newer, faster, catamaran. This will be a 2 hour trip operating twice a day

We cannot guarantee sightings of any animals on any of these trips.

We opted to go for the Mischief Wildlife Experience and it was absolutely brilliant. Some of the views were breathtaking and on top of that we were fortunate enough to see multiple dolphins on our trip. The skipper Gus was also very knowledgable and enhanced what was already an amazing experience. I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone local as well as anyone who is visiting the area.

A great afternoon on the water

Just back from an afternoon out on the water. The weather was mixed but the suites provided were excellent and kept us warm despite the Scottish wind and rain. It wasn't easy to find the dolphins in the choppy water but we did. It was great to see them up close, along with lots of sea birds. A fun day out.

Disabled friendly

The staff was really helpful and friendly, they have the facilities to accommodate disabled guests (toilet at the base, ramp onto the boat) so my partner was able to enjoy the experience. Really lovely experience would definitely recommend!

A fun and successful morning on the water!

We had a fantastic morning out on the water with guide Tasha who was both informative and friendly. We booked the Dolphin Mischief rib boat and it was incredible - plenty of birds, seals, and a few porpoises/dolphins spotted too! We all had a great time and would highly recommend the tour to anyone wanting to see some marine wildlife and the beautiful views from the rib boat itself! Thank you for a great time.
