We went to the Barnacles Cafe to feed the dolphins at 7am - maybe a little over kill as they don’t feed till 8am. The dolphins were absolutely gorgeous. They are so friendly for Wild dolphins and ever so gentle when feeding. This is a...More
What a magical experience. You turn up at 7am to the cafe, it cost £5 for a fish per person, which after an educated talk about the dolphins you’d be given the opportunity, in a small group, to feed the dolphins one by one. Our...More

We absolutely loved feeding the Dolphins! The staff were excellent and in control of all the public making sure that the Dolphins were protected while we all had our turn to feed these wonderful creatures! Highly recommended! Then we had a great large breakfast at...More
