  • A memorable experience feeding ridgeback dolphins in the wild. Usually around half a dozen dolphins start to arrive after 7am, and feeding starts at 8.Choose whether you prefer to feed or just watch. ...  more »
  • We paid $10 each for entry and feeding. It was absolutely worth it. Fascinating to see wild dolphins could be how to taulich. Everyone came to feed his fish despite large crowds at the series. Great experience in great scenery.

  • Great to see the dolphins. A few of the guides were typical pensioners the came across as being pretty rude before the main event. They are more interested in money than the dolphins well being. There is no need for anyone to go into the water its more like a big ego trip id not recommend
  • Great! Beautiful strory and nice dolphins. So cool to see them playing in the swallow waters. And the coffee there is excellent!
  • What an amazing opportunity to feed wild dolphins if it weren't for the voluntary staff who order you about and can be quite rude. I wanted my partner to film me feeding the dolphin I had been allocated. It was a case of hold the fish like this, now give it to them and hurry up because other people are waiting. Hence I never got my video. My partner barely had time to get into place let alone put the video on. I was very disappointed with the way myself and the rest of the people were rushed.
  • 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.
  • Excellent knowledge of the wild dolphins. Well worth the visit from England . Especially feeding them. 😄
