“Excellent Dolphin Tour”

Dolphin Trips Avoch
Ranked #1 of 2 things to do in Avoch
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

This dolphin tour was wonderful, and we got to learn a bit about the area in which we were sailing, as well as the dolphins themselves. The captain was very kind and welcoming, and we loved being able to get up close with the dolphins - a pod of 5-6 were visible that day! As an added bonus, the captain brought along his adorable dog, Spud, who was an excellent first mate!

Overall, this was an excellent trip and I highly recommend it!

I would definitely recommend this trip, it was great to see dolphins and seals in their natural habitat rather than at the zoo. We were up in the highlands for a weeks holiday and thought it would be a a bit of an Adventure for our 7 year old daughter and 3 year son however were a little apprehensive as neither of them had been on a proper boat trip before. They had a great time seeing both a seal and a dolphin. It is also a very interesting trip for adults as the captain took us past fort George and shared information about the different firths etc, the scenery is also fantastic, it was a little overcast the day we were there but that’s to be expected in Scotland. Once we got back from the trip it was around dinner time, the owner recommended the allangrange arms in nearby munlochy which was also great, food excellent and a nice atmosphere. We will be back for another trip hopefully in the next couple of years.

Had a fantastic time going out to see the dolphins , and we saw dolphins , lots of dolphins ! The captain was very good and very interesting with his knowledge of the area . A previous coment about the boat being old , and carrying no lifejackets , all I can say we must have been on another boat , modern 220Hp water jet propeled was our one .The highlight was definitely the dolphin sightings in the company of Spud the collie who kept an eye out for the Dolphins.

What a magical experience and one that my two daughters and I will remember for many years to come! We felt so lucky to see so many dolphins and it was fascinating learning about the area from Gwyn. All in all a very special boat trip. Thank you!
