The Monkey Mia Dolphin Experience is truly amazing and for most a once in a lifetime experience. There are a few negative and I think unjustified comments on this and other sites that come from people having unrealistic expectations and a lack of understanding of...More

Yea, it was informative, professional and unique. Overall I was disappointed, the rangers spend 40 minutes telling the history behind the 'experience', before letting about 3 people feed a dolphin. I get why this is done, (so as not to damage the dolphins), but it...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.

Went to see the dolphins which were great at 7.45 am. Great fun watching them and also a Pelican trying to steal food! Great brekki afterwards. Then an emu walked through the park

Unfortunately when we went here the resort was under massive re-construction so the experience was not so good. We went in the morning and there wasn't too many people there. Only a couple of dolphins lolling about in the water.

Stayed at monkey Mia for 3 days. Would recommend staying at the resort for a few days so you can get a handle on the place and to increase your dolphin viewing time. Staying in Denham can be a bit inconvenient. The resort is a...More
