Plan your visit and book tours

The Centre is now open as a takeaway cafe facility, exhibition and gift shop. Our opening hours are 10:30am to 4pm EVERY DAY throughout July and August.

The WDC Scottish Dolphin Centre is situated at the mouth of the River Spey and is a haven for wildlife including bottlenose dolphins, ospreys, grey and common seals, the occasional otter and many coastal birds. The Centre is based in an 18th Century salmon fishing station and has a fascinating history. Our passionate staff and volunteers will be on hand to tell you more and answer any questions.

Entry to the Scottish Dolphin Centre is FREE.

We are now operating differently to keep our visitors and staff safe. You can visit our shop, takeaway cafe and exhibition but please be aware you may have to queue as we limit numbers. Unless you are exempt, please wear a mask in the Centre buildings and follow our social distancing measures. Read more here.

Land-based dolphin watching

Go up on Icehouse hill to try to spot the largest bottlenose dolphins in the world! Look out for splashes, birds overhead and discontinuities in the water. You can also follow us on Twitter @dolphinsighting.

Unguided walks

Join the Speyside Way at the Centre to walk along the River Spey on a well maintained, flat footpath. Why not walk one mile along the path up to the old iron railway bridge, now a cycle and footpath that offers brilliant views down the the Spey? Great for dogs, cyclists and walkers.
