In the afternoon, the “Discover the World of Dolphins” presentation at the Marine Education Centre will give you a full understanding of these enchanting creatures and prep you for the highlight of the day – the dolphin feeding. At sunset, be in awe as the local family of dolphins comes ashore ready for a nightly feed. You’ll watch the dolphins come to feed in the shallow waters of the beach from the perfect viewing point of the nearby jetty. To take part in the magical experience of hand feeding a dolphin, book the Dolphin Feeding upgrade to reserve your spot.
