A school camp had arrived on the day of our feeding experience so we were concerned with how long it will take considering we had a 5, 2 & 1 year old however they were so efficient and organised. Their care for the dolphins are paramount and we were fortunate to feed Tinkerbell as a family without needing to be separated (we held our little two in our arms). It was a wonderful experience and certainly one our 5 year old will never forget

Hopefully the dolphin feeding is included in your package because it is good to do.
Great experience, there didn’t seem to be as many people as usual so we were given multiple fish to feed the dolphins. We feed Rani :-)

This event came as part of our accommodation package and despite there being a huge crowd the organisation and the experience was fantastic. This resort is really focussed on eco tourism and does a great job educating Aussies and foreign tourists on responsible travelling. A special shout out to James - one of the eco rangers who was such a great help - he knew so much and shared it so eloquently.

Though there were many people lined up to feed the dolphins it was still worth the money. I didn't notice the amount of people around us when we were with the dolphin. All staff were informative and friendly

My hubby is 72 and wasn't real keen to experience the Dolphin feeding but our daughter got him a beach wheelchair and got him to the water. It was hysterical watching her pull off his shoes and socks as he was very reluctant to get wet haha. But the look on his face in the photo proves he was amazed by this experience of a lifetime. And I actually didn't mind getting wet either!
