Hello Spey Bay !

I have been along at the WDC Scottish Dolphin Centre for the last two days doing some training and it was lovely to be back at beautiful Spey Bay – I forget just what a special place it is.

It was great to meet our new team of residential volunteers for 2016 and I hope to see a lot more of them over the coming season. It won’t be too long before they start seeing dolphins hunting for salmon at the entrance to the mighty River Spey and possibly some of the dolphins that I see around Chanonry Point and Cromarty. The Centre is open at weekends in February and March: 10.30am – 4.00pm and then every day from March 25th: 10.30am – 5.00pm. We hope to see you here sometime, keep looking at the website to find out whats on and also have a browse through our our online shop – the profits from the shop go directly to help us help whales and dolphins worldwide.
