“Where you get to interact with these amazing mammals on their turf and their terms.”
The Dolphins of Monkey Mia are famous for their almost daily ritual of swimming to shore to see what the humans are up to. As many as five wild bottlenose dolphins regularly visit the beach, usually in the morning, moving up and down the shoreline within arms reach of the crowd, making Monkey Mia one of the most incredible dolphin watching spots in Australia. A specially trained ranger controls the interaction session, choosing a few lucky onlookers to hand feed the dolphins. While you're sure to see dolphins in the mornings, keep an eye on the bay at other times as dolphins frolic and feed, regularly leaping into the air. At Monkey Mia you learn all about these friendly creatures, including how to gain their trust. Guidelines involve being gentle, not making noise, and especially not touching them. Researchers at the Dolphin Information Centre at Monkey Mia carry out important studies into dolphin interaction and are on hand to tell you about their findings. Monkey Mia in the Shark Bay World Heritage area is half an hour's drive from Denham. Get to Denham in a day's drive from Perth or fly there in two hours.
