Wildlife

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…

So… You’ve Been to Dolphin Spirit, Now What?

Afternoon Activities So you’ve been and done your Dolphin Spirit/Mischief experience; you’ve had fun cruising the coast and meeting some of the charismatic wildlife that the Moray Firth has to offer… now what? If you’re new to Inverness (like I was once!), you may be quite daunted by that distance between places, or what there…

Hunting Party!

Dolphin Mischief Gatecrashes the Get-Together! It was a cold and blustery day for the best part of the morning and afternoon, but the weather didn’t hold back the Mischief from heading into the wilderness, and they’ll be glad they went out! On arrival to Chanonry Point on the morning trip, Mischief found a lonely Sundance…

Tea For Two

Never the Same Trip Twice! While this is generally the fact of it here at Dolphin Spirit, it was even more true today! With the weather being the main change throughout the day, we honestly couldn’t say one trip to the next what it was going to be like! The morning started off horribly weather-wise,…

The Perfect Day!

Sunshine and Cetaceans All Round! It couldn’t really have been a better day if we tried! The sun poked its head through the clouds during the 10am sailing and stayed for the rest of the day; something our dolphins did too! Every single sailing for both Dolphin Spirit and Mischief encountered our finned friends, who…

Anti-Social Dolphins!

Sun’s Out, Fins… In? After a downright miserable day weather-wise yesterday, it was great to get out onto the water again in glorious sunshine! With bright blue skies and emerald waters for the most part of today, you could have sworn someone had moved our office into the Mediterranean! The Moray Firth was looking her…

Good Things Come in Threes!

Another Triple Dolphin Day! Maybe we were a little quick to discount the good weather we were having! We certainly didn’t enjoy the wind and rain that buffeted the boat this morning and early afternoon! What we did enjoy though, was a day almost completely full of dolphins! We spotted Kesslet, Charlie, and Scoopy first…

Wet, Wild, and Windy!

Spray Everywhere! Between the wind and the waves, I think we ate more of the Moray Firth than we saw of it today! It wasn’t exactly the most comfortable of days out on the water, but one that we made the most of nonetheless. We started our day off the right way, with sightings of…

Sunshine Burnout!

Too Much Good Weather! Only in the UK will you hear such a phrase being uttered unironically! After yesterday’s rainy day, you’d think we’d be just buzzing to get some unexpected sunshine again, but it certainly didn’t seem to be the case! With the return of the sun, I think everyone was too burned out…

Watching in All Weathers

Sightings in Sunshine! The difference in weather in just a mere 24 hours can sometimes be astounding in Inverness; the past couple of days have proven this much. Yesterday, by all accounts, was a fabulous one, with sunshine all day (despite the forecast at the beginning of the week citing cloud and rain) and, even…
