We are planning a trip to WA in Easter 2009 and we going to stop at Monkey Mia on our way up to Exmouth and the Ningaloo Reef. I've just been talking to some guys who saw dolphins at Bunbury and really enjoyed it because there weren't too many people around and it didn't seem 'staged' which has to be a good thing. Just for info we'll be travelling with two children who'll be twelve and nine, so the three-hour sea kayaking trip may be a non-starter!
It'd be a real bummer to fly up to Monkey Mia and find that you were just one of a crowd of Japanese tourists on a day trip from Perth pestering one sad lone dolphin (I did once see a Japanese woman poke a sleeping Koala with a (long)stick to get it to move high up in it's tree for their video and vowed to avoid all such tour groups like the plague in future, so I do have my reasons ... and yes I did say something very loudly and yes I'm sure they understood what I said!)
Can anyone help please?
