Moray Firth Dolphin Boat Trips

Dolphin Boat trips on the Moray Firth give you a wonderful chance to see dolphins and other sealife up close. With at least 12 dolphin and wildlife watching boats and cruises operating all around the Moray Firth, there should be one or two near your holiday location.

Dolphin and wildlife watching trips sail from  quite a few places around the Moray Firth including Inverness, Nairn, Avoch (pronounced Och), Findhorn and Macduff. Remember, dolphins are wild animals so none of the boat trip operators can guarantee sightings.

Boats can disrupt the natural behaviour of dolphins and other sealife. Dolphin Boat Trip operators in the Moray Firth can commit to codes of conduct operated by the Dolphin Space Programme (and) or the WiSe scheme (Wildlife Safe) - Accredited Wildlife Safe Operator Scheme. These schemes can give a good level of assurance that your dolphin Boat trip has minimal impact on dolphins and other sealife in the Moray Firth so please look out for this accreditation.
