  • Very friendly staff and exhilarating experience! It was Easter Monday so a lot of people came but there was only one dolphin (Squirt), but everyone got to feed him (one fish pp) and the waiting time wasn't long - the atmosphere was good so that you didn't feel that you were waiting for long. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. A bit pricey ($10 for entry + feeding) considering that we only get to feed one fish but it's worth the money as feeding wild dolphins and being in the same water as them is not something that everyone gets to experience. Even if you're not feeding, you can still get a good view of the dolphins around the area. 10/10 would recommend.
  • Fantastic place to see dolphins close up. The people there clearly love what they do. Price is really cheap and it isn't overcrowded compared to somewhere like Tangalooma.
  • Volunteers are just lovely but too many people so hard tp see and a bit of a shock to have to pay 5 dollars just to watch....10 to feed 1 fish to a dolphin for 5 seconds this equates to the dolphins pulling in 120 dollars per hour...you think they would make this more affordable Get there early or you'll be watching from near the car park
  • The best experience you can do in Tin Can Bay. You are allowed to feed wild dolphins for 5$. Right now there is also a little baby dolphin you can see if you are lucky because the dolphins come whenever they want to and are not forced to come to the beach.
  • A must if you are in the area, knowledgeable staff and reasonable prices to feed the dolphins
