See dolphins in Inverness on this comfortable and family-friendly dolphin tour with easy access to the inner Moray Firth. The guide will tell you all about dolphins and other wildlife!
The Largest Dolphin Boat On The Moray Firth
“Dolphin Spirit” is the boat to take you onto the waters of the Inner Moray Firth to see the dolphin pods. She is classified as a “Motor Passenger Ferry”, which means she is specifically designed to carry people in comfort. Up to 70 people in fact. This is important from a conservation point of view. It means that there is the minimum possible disruption for the dolphins: There’s only one hull in the water, with only one set of propellers. The engines were selected for their low emissions and are connected to a specially configured low vibration drive train.
From the dolphins’ point of view, this is a quiet boat. At 12.89 metres long and just over 5 metres of the beam, she’s a decent size, which means comfort for you and your party.
The spacious cabin is fully carpeted and has upholstered seats. You’ll find the centre seats are raised to ensure the best visibility from within the craft. Which means everyone has a view, no matter where you choose to sit. The cabin windows are double glazed to guard against condensation. The outside spaces on the main and upper decks give you the opportunity for great views.
The Newest Dolphin Boat On The Moray Firth
Dolphin Mischief took to the waters of the Moray Firth in April 2017 and was immediately popular.
She offers a very different experience to her sister, Dolphin Spirit. She goes further, faster, and offers a lot more excitement packed into each 2-hour sailing (whilst still observing wildlife-safe boat handling of course).
Dolphin Mischief is a 9 meter RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat) equipped with two powerful Yamaha outboard motors. She is capable of taking the more intrepid Dolphin-watcher beyond the confines of the Inner Moray Firth. She’ll take you through the narrows between Chanonry Point lighthouse and Fort George and out into the waters off Ardersier. Then back to Inverness.
