I liked this show, even though it was freezing in June. Its a funny show with a small $5 fee, good for the whole family. Lots of photo ops and a lovely sunset.

My daughter enjoyed it very much while the my mother and I were quite put off by the presenter's rudeness and the way he handled the birds.

An eye opener for us, as it's the first time we come so close to the pelicans. It's an interesting sight, seeing them snatching food from each other when the pelican man fed them.

My husband and I enjoyed it very much and although the charge is $5 voluntary donation (which we were more than happy to give) some People refused and I thought that was very rude of them. 5 stars from us :)

The show itself was quite goid but oresebter was quitecrude to people who were not part of show. This is a bad reflection on the island and its people as the island is beautiful.

The Pelican feeding is just near the Kingscote Wharf at 5 p.m every day. There is a voluntary donation of $5.00 an adult. Get there early to get a good seat. It is loads of fun for any age group., I would say it was one of the best things to do on the Island. A must if you have... More

We almost didn't go, but the experience was well-worth the voluntary donation to pay for fish. Incredible pelicans and lots of action. Get there by 5:30, or else!
