Dolphin and Marine Wildlife Boat Trips from Inverness Marina

Attention All Mischief Makers and Spirited Sailors

We can’t shout about it enough; 2017 is going to be the biggest and best year yet for Dolphin Spirit! Don't get us wrong, 2016 was a brilliant year; our 5-star quality assurance rating from Visit Scotland was the icing on a delicious cake made up of tremendous sightings, a whole load of new experiences, and of course, visits from our fantastic passengers! It's hard to believe 2017 is only going to be our third year!


With all that success in 2016, we are aiming for the stars with our new vessel Dolphin Mischief (I’m sure you’ve heard about it by now!). A longer experience at 2 hours a trip, Mischief is set to be a fast-paced, adrenaline-fuelled race to Chanonry Point and beyond. For those who have already been aboard Dolphin Spirit, or for those looking to get their blood pumping, this is the perfect experience to see a little bit more of the glorious Moray Firth landscape, and hopefully a little more of the wildlife on offer too! Tickets for Mischief are available to book now from £32.


The Dolphin Spirit herself has had a bit of a facelift too, with a new paint job and some touch-ups to her graphics on the outside, and a furniture fix on the inside. In addition to all the big, fancy works, Dolphin Spirit now carries 5 languages on board with her new language sheets! All you need to know about the safety drills, the wildlife and the scenery is now available in English, German, French, Italian and Spanish for the new season! School groups are in for a treat too; education packs are also now available in primary and secondary levels to help make the trip a more school-friendly and educational experience. Tickets for Spirit are available to book now from £18; larger groups should contact us directly by phone or email for discounts and information on private charter.


But that’s not all! The reception area is receiving a bit of an upgrade as well! We are currently working on a project which will see the reception area equipped with new display stands for our gift shop products, as well as an upgraded snack section! Along with our hot drinks and biscuits, we are planning to also have various sandwiches and cold drinks and snacks available in our new display fridge. A lovely new slideshow will also play on the reception’s (formerly) redundant big-screen, featuring footage from our sailings from guests and guides alike.


We’ve been working really hard this winter to make 2017 really special for all our passengers, new and returning, so we hope you’re all as excited about it as we are! Meanwhile, locals Charlie and Kesslet have been enjoying their winter around the Moray Firth, poking their noses into the Beauly Firth to see us now and again. Kesslet and her brand new calf were also recently spotted in Scrabster, near Thurso, where they seemed to be enjoying some alone time on a short break! This impromptu trip is the furthest north Kesslet has ever been; talk about sightseeing!

Our season starts on the 1st of April this year, so book now and get yourself into the #DolphinSpirit or into #DolphinMischief!

Charlie

Our first sailing today has been an incredible success! Although Kesslet made an appearance in the distance it was Charlie who stole the show. Some fantastic photos and videos were captured by our guide of today, Krystyna.

Seals were also spotted by our lucky visitors today; we're keeping an eye out for the harbour seal pup that was born outside Caley Stadium on Friday!

Head over to our Facebook- Dolphin Discovery Inverness- for more images.

 

Close Encounter

A beautiful photo sent in by a customer who attended our midday sailing aboard the Dolphin Spirit on Saturday the 27th of June.

They were lucky enough to have a close encounter with some of the largest bottlenose dolphins in the world. Despite the dull weather our guests had a fantastic time thanks to our resident dolphins Kesslet and her son Charlie!

Don't let the weather stop you from having an experience like this, our purpose built vessel provides warmth due to its heated indoor cabin, as well as a top deck for some of you who are unphased by those cooler days!

Dolphin Spirit

The Moray Firth Dolphin Boat

Thought you might be interested to see a picture of Dolphin Spirit at her berth in Inverness Marina.

We've tried to make access easy for as many visitors as possible.  There are no steps to climb.  You'll walk to the boat along the gently inclined ramp access used for the marina itself.

When you get to the boat you'll find it's a simple step from the jetty onto the deck, all at the same level.  No awkward gangplanks, regardless of the tide and weather conditions.
