Well run operation with emphasis on ensuring that everyone enjoyed the experience safely. Sadly, on this occasion, we did not see any dolphins or whales but large number of marine bird life on view. A good opportunity for those interested in photography.

Iris was really great and knowledgeable about the wildlife and landscape of Moray Firth. We were lucky with the weather and saw lots of dolphins. They have a Facebook page and they post updates there.
