Our education team also offers indoor workshops. A member of education team will visit your group to give an interactive workshop. Topics to choose from cover:

  • Introduction to whales and dolphins along the East coast of Scotland
  • The problem of marine litter (try our litter timeline game, look at the threat of plastic and try your hand at upcycling litter)

We do not charge for WDC visits to your group. Donations are welcome.

‘I am writing to thank you and the staff at the Dolphin Centre on behalf of 1st Kintore Scouts. We spent an interesting afternoon at the centre. I feel sure everyone learned something new about the sea life on our coastlines and we were happy to contribute our time to help clean up the beach for the other visitors.’ 1st Kintore Scouts
