The dolphin feeding was very contrived and the most exciting thing we saw was an emu stealing a scone from someone in the cafe.

A fantastic 4 hours aboard with 2 fantastic crew making sure we were able to take part and enjoy everything. They were very informative about the area and sealife pointing out all seen by them from their advantageous positions. First stop was the Pearl Farm at sea where a very informative chat was received followed by the ability to purchase... More

My Wife & I went across to Monkey Mia for 730 to feed the Dolphins. We didnt get to feed them but you still get fairly close regardless and can get some good photos. The Rangers are very knowledgeable. My lower rating was due tonthe group size. With everyone pushing and shoving to get tonthe front there are some too... More

This part of the jetty is still within the feeding... More

This cruise was one of the best experience we've had at Monkey Mia. It was suppose to be a 2.5h trip but it lasted 3h. We saw dugongs, eagle rays, dolphins, baby dolphins, sea turtles. The skipper was very enthusiastic and would answer any questions you had. The morning trip also included a pearl farm stopover which was very educational... More

We are from Scotland, despite some warnings about the length of the drive etc we found it to be a good trek but no problem if committed, not that different from say Aberdeen to South of England. Kids liked the drive. The sea... More

I went on a 3 1/2 hour cruise on the Aristocat 2 from Monkey Mia on November 19th . It cost $86 (AUD) per person and was simply fantastic. Our skipper Greg and crew Brendan was outstanding hosts. We boarded at Monkey Mia, had a comprehensive and entertaining safety briefing and then set off. Shortly afterwards we saw Nicki and... More
