Send us your sightings

Your sightings are important to us. Each record we receive provides valuable information about the distribution and occurrence of the numerous cetacean species found in Scottish waters.

If you have been lucky enough to spot a whale, dolphin or porpoise, please send us your report by completing the online sightings form below. For help with identification, you can refer to our Species Identification Key or Cetacean Fact Files. For stranded animals, however, please refer to our Rescue pages for full reporting protocols.
