We had a wonderful trip to celebrate our wedding anniversary, plenty of seabirds and of course dolphins and a calf! And even a sunny day - brilliant.

“Never fails to please”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

We had done this trip four or five times before, this year however the weather was to bad and the trip was cancelled. The girls had tried to contact us but there is no signal where we stay, so they left three messages on different days advising about the weather conditions and warning us there could be a cancellation. This proved to be very helpfull because as we picked up a signal the messages came through which meant we could change our plans without travelling all the way to Cromarty. That is just one of the things they do to make your trip with them hassle free. Every one we have taken with us on the trip have loved it, and want to go back for more. I would recomend this ti anyone, because on the odd occassions you dont see Dolphins it is still worthwhile and thoroughly enjoyable.

I would thoroughly recommend this trip, it's worth going out of your way to get here. Sarah and Rachel are delightful, very helpful, friendly and so keen that you have a fab trip. We were so lucky because we saw lots of dolphins including young ones. It was truly a fabulous experience.

“Amazing experience! Basking Sharks galore.”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

We were blessed with a very calm sea, like glass, which for me was a bonus as I suffer with sea sickness. The saw numerous basking sharks with them swimming right up to the rig and even passing underneath us - it was breath-taking. There were eight of them around the boat and several more in the distance. We also saw dolphins, porpoises and numerous sea birds. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this trip to anyone, any age, I had a little trouble getting my leg over the seat but once in it is very comfortable. Thank you EcoVentures, it was amazing. Check out the underwater video of the basking sharks on their FaceBook page.
