The Adventures

We have a choice of two boat trips offering excursions into the Moray Firth.  We travel through beautiful scenery taking in the Beauly Firth and the Black Isle while listening to tales of folklore and history. We hope to see seals, otters, a variety of seabirds, and the occasional porpoise too! The  Spirit runs four times per day and each trip lasts approx. 1 hour 15 minutes. The  Mischief is a longer, adrenaline-fueled trip traveling much further and lasts two hours.

We cannot guarantee sightings of any animals on these trips.

Amazing trip and friendly, knowledgeable staff. All COVID 19 precautions followed meaning we could enjoy the exhilarating experience. We had an amazing view of the dolphins in their natural environment. The trip back to the harbor was exhilarating at speed. Highly recommended, worth every penny.

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!

Great boat experience

We visited in COVID times so the boat occupancy was limited to less than half full. The organisation was excellent. There are good toilet facilities at the harbour and a toilet on board. Our Guide Debbie was excellent - very knowledgeable with a great sense of humour. We was seals, sea birds, ospreys but unfortunately no dolphins. Nonetheless it was a great trip and well worth it.
