This is without a doubt, the uk's number 1 spot for seeing the dolphins. As a rule, it's a good idea to get local knowledge of tide times. Ideally, you need to arrive about 1 hour before low tide, and be prepared to stick it out for a good 5-6 hours. I see too many people, have a 10 mins wonder, and then give up. If a high volume of fish travel up the firth, then normally a large number of dolphins will arrive, putting on a great display. Again, there is no guarantee, as you have to appreciate these are wild animals. Don't get me wrong, it's great when they show. But i'd rather take a trip to cromarty, and go on the ecoventures speed boat trip. You just can't beat having them right up close to the boat, whilst actually being in the water with them. The skipper Sarah, is fantastic, putting her heart and soul in trying to find them for you. Being closer to the boat, i find increases chances of nice pics. I have been on ecoventures numerous times now. Good luck!
