One of the top moments of our holiday in Avoch. Skipper very respectful of the dolphins' space, but frequently the dolphins chose to come to us.

We (2 adults + 3 children) enjoyed a great trip out this afternoon. We all enjoyed the fast, bouncy boat ride to and from the area the dolphins were feeding. Saw loads of dolphins, some close to the boat. Impressed with the skippers respect for...More
