Overview
More
An educational, fun boat tour on the largest tour boat on the Moray Firth. Your personal guide will give you insightful commentary about the local wildlife, history, folklore and attractions. While on board you will have the opportunity to possibly see otters, seals, red kites, ospreys, herons and, with a stroke of luck, the resident bottlenose dolphins which all make use of the firth. Tours run at 10am, 12pm, 2pm and 4pm every day, weather permitting. The trip is roughly 1 hour and 20 minutes long, going between the Beauly Firth and Inverness Firth.
