Things to do Dolphin Spirit

Dolphin Spirit

Choose between a large, comfortable fully accessible Cruiser or a faster Rib trip to travel through several dolphin hotspots in the hope of tracking down our beautiful dolphins with something for everyone.

Dolphin Spirit

The Cruiser, Dolphin Spirit is a comfortable accessible boat and carries up to 65 passengers on 3 decks.

We hope to see not only dolphins but seals, otters and a variety of seabirds during the trip.

Our onboard commentary will keep you fully informed about the animals you might see, along with tales of history and folklore too. The guide can also answer any questions you may have.


The boat leaves at 10 am, 12 noon, 2 pm and 4 pm and the trip lasts approx. 1 hour 15 minutes.

Our new RIB, Dolphin Mischief, is a 12 seater Rigid Inflatable boat and is a much faster vessel. The boat trip lasts 2 hours and travels much further out through Chanonry and beyond to the sandbanks by Whiteness. There is a short stop about halfway through the trip for a hot drink.

Waterproof clothing is provided but we suggest you come ready for the cold with layers, hats and gloves were possible.


Both trips offer unapparelled opportunities to go searching for dolphins directly from Inverness.


Booking can be done online or over the phone. Spaces may be available on the day but book ahead to guarantee your place. Come and see what Dolphin Spirit has to offer and ‘Choose your adventure’!
