For an adventure on the wild Scottish sea and a chance to discover the rich marine life that Britain has to offer, you can travel up to Moray Firth on the north coast of Scotland to get a look at one of just three populations of bottle-nose dolphins around the UK.

The trips are run by the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society (WDCS) and give you a chance to get out to sea to look at the Dolphins, as well as observing them from the shore, which they play within one or two metres of. You’ll get to learn about the Dolphins and their habitat from WDCS’ field officers and you’ll also spend a day at the WDCS conservation centre which is right next door to a wildlife reserve home to otters, seals and osprey. The trip includes nature walks, plenty of quality time in search of Dolphins and also accommodation in an 18th century brewery next to the sea. Budding photographers will be given the chance to get up close and personal with the coastal environment and can spend one afternoon getting tips from a professional photographer on how best to capture the natural environment.
