Start your tour in the late afternoon relaxing with a welcome drink and a selection of finger food. Learn about the island’s history of dolphin feeding and education program which started back in the 1970’s at the Tangalooma resort Marine Education Centre. To this day, the family of dolphins return each evening. Then, prepare and get into the water to hand feed the island’s most popular visitors. This is a once-in-a-lifetime, never to be forgotten experience.
Be sure to bring your camera as the photo opportunities are endless, although flash photography is not permitted from the beach. Alternatively a photo service is available at an additional charge.
Enjoy a welcome drinks and finger food.
You may get wet up to your waist whilst feeding the dolphins so please bring a change of clothes and a towel ashore with you. The Wild Dolphin Feeding relies on dolphins arriving in the shallows naturally therefore dolphin feeding will commence as we welcome the dolphins close to shore.
If you prefer to stay dry whilst feeding the dolphins waders can be hired for a fee of $10.00 per person.
Dolphin feeding is not suitable for pregnant women. Not suitable for wheelchair bound guests. Children 17 years and under must be accompanied by an adult who also holds a Wild Dolphin Discovery ticket.
In the event of adverse weather conditions where guest safety may be compromised, guests may have to feed from the jetty instead of the beach.
Important information to ensure the best possible dolphin care:
* Flash photography is not permitted from the beach
* Please do not wear insect repellants, perfumes, deodorants or sunscreens into the water
* If you have a cold, flu or respiratory illness you are not permitted to feed the dolphins
* Wear something you do not mind getting wet. Remove any sharp or large hand jewellery
* Disinfect your hands in the bucket provided before handling the fish
