WDC Scottish Dolphin Centre temporary closure

Scottish Dolphin Centre

Due to the ongoing situation with Covid 19 and our concern for the safety and welfare of our visitors, staff and volunteers the Centre is now CLOSED for 12 WEEKS.

We hope to re-open in June, but we will continue to reassess our situation as things develop, based on the guidance from the Scottish government and relevant advisory bodies.

We are deeply sorry to disappoint visitors, but we would encourage you to enjoy the natural beauty of Spey Bay, you can still look out for the amazing bottlenose dolphins from the shoreline and on Shorewatch Hill, just in front of the icehouse.

At this challenging time in our lives, it is even more important for our mental health and wellbeing to connect with Mother Nature and all she has to offer.

Thank you so much for your patience, understanding and support at this time. You can still catch up on all things WDC and whale and dolphin via our website and social media feeds, or sign up to our newsletter – all at
