What a great place to visit! Seeing the dolphins up close interacting with the rangers was amazing (not being able to feed them after 3 visits to the wharf was a little disappointing, but that's okay, that's life ha ha); the cruise we went on...More

The viewing of the dolphins was a great experience especially for my 4 year old grandson. He went every day for 7 days & couldn’t get enough of them. You see them up close & learn a bit about their habits & personalities.

Dolphins captivate most of us. Magical to see them in these beautiful clear waters where it is usually very calm as well. When you see them swimming in the wild it is great but the chance to see them up close and with information from...More

I’ve rated the viewing and feeding of dolphins at Monkey Mia a two star on the basis it is very commercial and touristy and far from what I expected. In order to protect dolphins, which I agree with, feeding is limited to a max of...More
