Dolphin Mischief

Easy as 1, 2, 3!

Another Day of Hunting! It wasn’t quite the 4 out of 4 day enjoyed by yesterday, but a 3 out of 4 day worked out quite well, with a few more close encounters with Kesslet and Charlie! While the 10am was a quiet trip, we were informed shortly before the 12pm by Mischief skipper George…

Sunshine, Dolphin-Hops, and Rainbows!

Full Day of Dolphin Fun! After another strangely quiet day on the dolphin front yesterday, we kept up the pattern of “all or nothing” today with a fantastic 4 out of 4 day! Not only did Dolphin Spirit find dolphins on all 4 sailings, but Mischief found them across all 3 of theirs! A very…

Chronicles of Kesslet and Charlie

The Blog is Back! For regular readers, my apologies for not keeping up with your daily dose of Dolphin Spirit dolphins and digest; your blogger has been away celebrating her birthday, but is back now to catch up and keep you informed! The usual gruesome twosome have been chopping and changing over the past of…

Fantastic 4!

A Full Day with Dolphins! After the quiet of yesterday, Dolphin Spirit was subject to a real treat today with every trip lucky enough to see our locals! It started off in the morning, with Kesslet and Charlie being the early risers, arriving first thing to take advantage of the tides and the influx of…

Not Being Seal-fish!

A Quiet One for Spirit After all the madness that seems to have befallen the Kessock Channel over the past couple of days, it was strange to see it so quiet! Not a dorsal fin in sight all day, including on our special 7pm trip, but plenty of other wildlife making their presence felt. Primarily,…

Wildlife Worth Watching For

Not All Stars Have Fins! We’ve done the introduction to our crew and the dolphins, but what you might also need to know more about is the other wildlife often seen in our little corner of the Moray Firth; not all of it has fins! In this list we will cover some of the biggest…

Quiet Time

Well, For One Boat At Least… It was an odd morning to say the least for Dolphin Spirit and Mischief; arguably the best weather all day, but as far as sightings went, it was a real strange time. Mischief left at 9.30am as usual, and were quick to alert the crew of Dolphin Spirit to…

No-Fin!

Well That’s Not a Good Start…! So with the turn of a new week, we started our recording of sightings from Dolphin Spirit and Mischief for National Whale and Dolphin Watch. Pity that today had to be an anomaly as far as our recent sightings record has gone! An overall quiet day, Dolphin Spirit was…

Another Active Afternoon!

Where Are They Coming From? For the third time in about as many weeks, we have been absolutely spoiled by a traveling group of excitable dolphins in the Kessock Channel. After a quiet day yesterday, with sightings only briefly in the afternoon of Kesslet and Charlie, today’s afternoon spectacle was the treat we were waiting…

If you’re new to Inverness (like I was once!), you may be quite daunted by that distance between places, or what there…
