A number of operators offer short coastal cruises in the hope of spotting dolphins, but, as sightings not guaranteed, it’s probably worth looking at those that have more to offer such as cliffs and bird colonies.  We have no knowledge of any of these operators or of those offering trips on Loch Ness, but a friend has recommend the Jacobite trips.
