At EcoVentures we are focused on providing all our customers with a truly memorable “wildlife encounter”. Voted Best Visitor Attraction in the Highlands and Islands in 2016, we are a small friendly company and our customers are extremely important to us. For us, one of the best parts of the job is welcoming the same familiar faces back year after year and building upon the valued partnerships we have developed over the years. Quite simply we enjoy what we do, where we live and we want to share that with you by giving you the opportunity to visit the wildlife in their natural habitat, on their own terms.
EcoVentures is committed to providing you with the best possible experience while ensuring the long term sustainability of our local marine environment. By minimising our impact on the wildlife around us, we hope that it will continue to thrive and be enjoyed by all for years to come.
In 2015 we were delighted to be awarded a Green Tourism Business Scheme Silver Award. These awards recognise and support businesses that are positively working towards being sustainable and which are both accountable and genuine in approach. We continue to strive to improve and to review and update our Green Action Plan.
We are an accredited operator with the Dolphin Space Programme, a voluntary initiative set up by a number of local organisations to safeguard the welfare of the cetaceans in the Moray Firth. Over the years we have been actively involved in developing best practice guidelines for dolphin watching in this area. All accredited operators within the scheme adhere to a Code of Conduct designed to minimise disturbance to wildlife —this will be explained in much more detail during your trip. We are also WiSe (Master) accredited, a Wild Scotland Member, a Seawatch Recommended Operator and are rated as a top 5 star Visit Scotland Wildlife Experience.
