My partner and I did a road trip with 2 friends and monkey Mia was a stop over. We stayed in Denham which is a 30min drive from Monkey Mia which we didn’t mind as the accommodation is a lot cheaper than staying in the...More

Whilst it is not guaranteed that you will see dolphins it is rare for a complete no show. Don't expect lots though as there are only 5 females in the feeding programme and they don't all necessarily turn up for each session. It's best to...More

A wonderful experience for both young and old. A very informative activity well managed and organized. Small entry fee applies and specific times are applicable - look up before you go.

It is a beautiful spot and very peaceful too. We found the introduction to the first dolphin feeding in the morning too long winded. The second one went far smoother and much more enjoyable.

We visited Monkey Mia this morning. Absolutely recommend this experience of dolphin feeding. Whilst it was a cold morning with a bitterly cold wind it was still an amazing experience.

Monkey Mia is a long way off the beaten track, but the media hype suggested a visit worth while. I knew I would not see the dolphins, as I understand they only show for about 15 minutes in the morning. While the beech and camping...More
