A wonderful boat trip and a great way to experience the coastal scenery and marine life along the Moray coastline. The skipper of the boat - Eric, has a wealth of local knowledge about the coast and local wildlife, making the tour informative and fun.

No dolphins. Waste of money. Staff know nothing about dolphins. If you really want to see dolpins, this is not the right place.

Went on this boat trip expecting to have a great time like all the other reviews suggested but it ended up being awful! The boat was quite pokey and as it has no roof it was very cold and wet! It would of been nice...More
