Monkey Mia Beach & Dolphin Feeding

Day Use Area


Monkey Mia Road, Monkey Mia, Western Australia.


The dolphin experience begins at the Monkey Mia Visitors Centre with a short brief by a local park ranger at 7:45 am. When the dolphins are ready it's time to get in the water you'll wade ankle-deep into the shallows as the dolphins approach, some of them coming as close as a few meters from where you're standing. The ranger will explain how the dolphins are fed. You can volunteer to be able to give a dolphin a fish if you are staying 5 nights or more. Enquire at the discovery centre. Dolphin feedings take place up to three timesbetween 7:45 am and 12:00 pm every day on the beach at Monkey Mia. The dolphins don't have set feeding times, so the exact time they appear varies from day to day. Days when no dolphins appear are extremely rare the reserve has a 99% dolphin attendance rate year-round! The first feeding is the most crowded, so it's recommended you arrive early to get a good view. But don't be discouraged if you sleep in and miss a feeding the dolphins can be fed up to three times per day, so they usually come back for seconds and thirds! Swimming, boating, and fishing are not allowed in the dolphin experience area. This is so that the dolphins can visit the shore without any human disturbances and so that researchers can freely monitor the pod.
