I’ve rated the viewing and feeding of dolphins at Monkey Mia a two star on the basis it is very commercial and touristy and far from what I expected. In order to protect dolphins, which I agree with, feeding is limited to a max of...More

It was remarkable to see the dolphins swim close to the shore to the wonder and delight of the guests. It was odd that the staff were permitted to enter the water however they warned the guests not to do it. They really are amazing...More

Everytime I return to MM, it seems so much more commercialised and this time wasn't any different. Good updates to the pool area and shop but MM has lost it's way in being a simple, enjoyable location. The entry price is ridiculous. Cost us $35...More

Firstly, upon reading some of the negative reviews on here, I feel we were lucky. The good: We stayed at a beautiful cabin overlooking the beach, which offered a stunning view. The dolphins appeared daily, most days on multiple occasions, alongside pelicans, emus & cormorants....More

We travelled here with our family of four (with two teenagers). We weren't sure how much of the dolphins we would see, but even sitting having breakfast, they started to come in to the beach to visit with their calves. It was great listening to...More

I love people whinging about paying $30 to see a beach. Ha ha. It’s a conservation area and the funds help keep it as it is. For those complaining about the feeding session being too short and only a chosen few feeding the dolphins. It’s...More
