  • Where else in the world do you get to feed dolphins in their native habitat....amazing experience that the family will never forget.  more »
  • Generous servings good breakfast at reasonable prices very busy place with dolphin viewing between 7 and 9 am. Be early if you want to feed the dolphins.  more »
  • Arrived at at 7.10am after an hour drive from Noosa-with a huge line! Sold out! Paid the $5 each to see 3 injured dolphins and 1 baby. Very depressing experience- as the dolphins had obviously been in...  more »

  • This is a great experience for a reasonable price. You're taught something about dolphins and can stand in the water near them and take lots of photos. For an extra cost, you can also feed them a fish. It's fantastic for kids and adults alike.
  • Great experience :) $10 to feed the dolphins and stand right next to them. The staff were fantastic with the dolphins and dolphin facts. The food is also really reasonably priced at the restaurant and nice for breakfast.
  • This is great value for any visitor, especially a family with kids. All volunteer run, the staff are here for their love of the dolphins and to allow us the privilege of experiencing wild dolphins up close. $10 a head is exceptional value. There is an establishment south of Brisbane that charges $400 for a dolphin encounter, which is not as good as the Barnacles experience according to our family opinion. Got there at 7, had a leisurely family breakfast ( which was just the ticket on a chilly morning!) and a decent coffee, a bit of banter with some local characters, then enjoyed spending time in the water with the Dolphins before feeding. Feeding was at 8. Lots of knowledge to absorb from the guides.
  • Excellent place to visit,informative for adults and children alike an inexpensive and informative and barnacles cafe has great food as well as good live music
  • 🐬AMAZING 🐬 It was a very informative and wonderful experience. Highly recommended 🐬 Thank you to the terrific staff
