Although we had heard of the Pelican Feeding, we happened to come along just as it was about to begin at 05:00 PM. The fellow feeding the pelicans gives a short informative talk while he dishes out fish to the gathered flock. In is interesting to see how patient and polite the pelicans act as they get their daily feed.... More

We loved this experience—the feeder was funny, informative, and entertaining, and the birds themselves were incredible to watch. You are able to get really close to them and observe how they interact with each other (and with the feeder!).

What an entertaining finish to an all day tour. These birds are an amazing sight to see, especially when they are all trying to get food at the same time. A comical performance. If only they knew they were famous! Jude Murray for Scottsdale Tours NZ

If you are in the area, check out the feeding times - good fun to watch and the Pelicans are quite spectacular. - See if you can do it without ducking!

Compared to some attractions on KI, this is one of the best priced - $5 per adult, $3 per child. But that is not widely or well published so you may be already sitting down and watching when this news is delivered. The birds are marvellous. However the person (John) feeding them seems to have some of his facts wrong,... More

Had a cold wet but fun time. My only comment - have the right money, he doesn't offer change. No problem with paying towards to costs and I had a small note fortunately but it was more expensive than I expected.

Great event to take the kids to. The Pelicans are very comfortable and knowledgeable about what is going on. They were hilarious and also intriguing to watch. The 'show' is short but very enjoyable and considering the chap only asks a small donation I thought it was well worth it.
