We came for a holiday to Monkey Mia and popped into Shark Bay for a look as we thought about staying next time. The people in town were quite unfriendly from people in IGA to filling up the car. We actually had parked in a spot and a lady came out and complained we weren't parked in the right place... More

Went on 3:5 hrs with the guys, it was well worth it. Great day. We were lucky enough to see the most Dugongs this year, green turtles, sponge nose dolphins.

Shark bay is a beautiful place and it is the only reason why you may may want to go to Denham (except the old shell restaurant, of course). But when you're there, consider that there are few "minor" things you should not miss, so here there are my personal hints: - Little lagoon. It is just outside Denham, north side.... More

The trip on Aristocat 2 to view the dugongs, dolphins, turtles; see the sponge dolphin (apparently the only place in the world where this can be seen) - was so worth the money. The boat is well maintained and clean with the largest on-board toilet I have seen!!. Plenty of places to sit or view or grab a tan. Brendan,... More

Took my kids for a holiday, we saw the dolphins being fed close to shore, also went out on a boat to see the reef & all sorts of marine life. It was really great.

I went up to Shark Bay not knowing what to expect, what I got was a lifetime of memories. I went with 9 others on the best fishing trip that we could have. The skipper, deckhand and i can't forget Cookie, they made the experience one to remember for a lifetime. If you want to go to some of the... More

Denham is a beautiful understated holiday area. It has so much to do there really is no need to travel to Monkey Mia unless the opportunity to be selected to feed the Dolphins is your dream. Monkey Mia is only approx. 20 mins from Denham so be there prior to 07.45. Denham has the opportunity to Whale watch, go 4... More
