Add to calendar

The east coast of Scotland has a resident population of bottlenose dolphins who are very at home in the cold North Sea. These dolphins are the largest of their kind in the world and are regular visitors to Aberdeen Harbour. From a well-chosen high vantage point, join us to take in panoramic views and witness an area bustling with wildlife, close to the heart of Aberdeen city centre. If making a special trip, please call ahead of visiting to ensure something hasn't taken us elsewhere on the day.
