Goodbye, So Long, Farewell!

And Then There Were None… It is with great joy that was can report the eventual departure of the pilot whales from the Inner Moray Firth. After their travels out towards Cromarty last night, the pod didn’t hang around, leaving the Sutors as quickly as they’d arrived, heading back out to sea. There have been…

Drama in the Inner Moray Firth

Crisis NOT Averted… When we waved the pilot whales goodbye out of the Kessock Channel yesterday afternoon we were cautiously optimistic that they would head out after their big adventure inland. Shortly after the writing of our last blog, messages started to ping through about the pod returning, waiting around the mouth of Munlochy Bay…

Whale, whale, whale…

Unexpected Visitors! It would turn into a day of many heightened emotions out on the Moray Firth, but started off just like any other day. Krystyna sat quayside prior to the 10am trip (after arriving to her post nice and early at 8am!), and spotted Charlie and Kesslet making their way into the Beauly Firth….

Fish Frenzy!

Wouldn’t Want to be a Salmon… It was a very varied day sightings-wise aboard Dolphin Spirit, but one in which all the animals spotted had something in common; the migratory fish were their primary target! In the morning, we were alerted to Kesslet and Scoopy being in the Kessock Channel, hunting for fish. We rushed…

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…

Not a Good Day For Fish!

A Feast to Be Had! It was a glorious day to be out on the Moray Firth today… for the most part! As our 4 pm passengers found out, the sunshine and calm waters wouldn’t last all day, but we had a barrel of laughs riding the waves in the later part of the afternoon…

The Rise of the Falling Tide

The Gruesome Twosome Strike Back! A rather strange day all in all aboard Dolphin Spirit, but one which saw the return of Kesslet and Charlie to the Kessock Channel twice! We first spotted them in the early morning, just as we came down the Beauly Firth heading towards the Kessock Bridge. They seemed to be…

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…

Family Fortunes

The Original Pair Return! After an exciting day yesterday, things got back to normal in the Inner Firth today; and not just back to normal with Kesslet and Scoopy, but 2016 normal with Kesslet and Charlie! After a quiet morning with the seals, Kesslet and Charlie put on a right show for our 12pm passengers,…
