Really enjoyed our trip out on the boat. We got to see bottle nose dolphins as well as sea bird colonies. Sarah who took us out was knowledgable and friendly. It was great fun, although a bit chilly. The hot chocolate half way through was very welcome! Would definitely go out again.

Travelled to Cromarty especially for this experience (a long way from London by car) and the wildlife didn't let us down. We were very fortunate to see many dolphins on our trip out on the rib boat (which is great fun in itself, so if you aren't lucky enough to see the dolphins then you'll still enjoy the trip). The...

Been to ecoventures several times now, handy as I live just across the water, absolutely could not recommend it high enough, the staff are all absolutely fantastic, very knowledgeable and exceptionally friendly. A few times out I've seen the dolphins and other times we weren't so lucky, but you can always be guaranteed a fantastic trip. Sailing along the cliffs... More

Me and my friend traveled down to Cromaty to go to ecoventures after seeing it online. And it did not disappoint! The views were amazing and seeing up to 20 dolphins and 2 baby's made my birthday suprise worth the visit down.

Thanks again, great company great trips. Have been out a few times in a few different places. As always full of interesting facts about the area and its wild life. This time Dolphins everywhere. Some great sea birds diving for fish and some rather stunning oil rigs in the bay. Thanks great day out.

We were told before buying the tickets that there was no guaranty for seeing Dolphins during the trip, and the group that returned when we were waiting to board didn't see any. They were however still very enthusiastic. After making the 2 hour trip we can only say that even without seeing the Dolphins, this tour is worth making. We... More

I visit Moray with my family every year and always hope to see dolphins. This year I decided to make a concerted effort to find dolphins and was very pleased when I discovered the EcoVentures website.
