The Moray Firth is famous for being home to several playful pods of bottle-nose dolphins who just love to show-off in the sunshine. You can often spot the dolphins from the beach, as they leap and play while hunting Atlantic Salmon in the Firth, though we also recommend a visit to the dolphin viewing area at Chanonry Point on the opposite side of the Moray Firth, a pleasant 40 minute drive away. A boat trip will get you even closer to the dolphins and other sealife.

Phoenix Sea Adventures offer fun chartered trips from Nairn Harbour, in a 10.5 metre jet-powered cabin rib. Your guides will have extensive knowledge of the waters and the best times and places to find the dolphins, giving you the best chance possible of an unforgettable wildlife experience. You may also spot seals and porpoises on your trip, as well as the occasional minke whale and basking shark, so keep your eyes peeled.
