I have travelled to a lot of other countries. Backpacked through Asia, Europe, The Middle East and South America. I have never experienced something so amazing as my dolphin experience at Tin Can Bay. We arrived around 7am and spent approx. an hour in the water with the dolphins who were swimming closely by. We saw them roll onto their backs putting their flippers up in the Air, jump into the air doing somersaults, talk to us etc etc. To finish a most perfect morning we fed the dolphins. Just amazing!!! Can I say the staff at Barnacles and the volunteers were absolutely amazing. The imformation they provided us with in regards to the dolphins was extremely informative. To any previous negative comments made regarding this adventure yes you can only go knee deep in the water, no you are not allowed flashes from your camera, and no you are not allowed to touch or pat the dolphins as this is their territory. As the volunteers explain this is the dolphins territory not ours and we need to respect that. The volunteers here are absolutely beautiful. Very happy, informative and patient people. Yes one of the volunteers raised her voice because one of the people viewing the Delphins tried to pat the dolphin not once after a warning but twice....totally disrespectful and worthy of a raised volunteers voice. If you dont want to abide by the rules to protect these beautiful creatures then don't go. There are rules at the Tin can Bay viewing to protect these most beautiful mammals. Today was one of the most beautiful days of my life. It has certainly made me appreciate theses most beautiful and vulnerable creatures and made me feel extremely protective of them. Thank you Barnacles for an amazing experience. Oh and to pay $5 for the experience of being able to Feed these beautiful creatures who can complain??? If you don't want to donate your $5 to look after such a great animal then to view the dolphins is free!!! Try doing that for free elsewhere??? Not likely! I cannot thank the volunteers and Barnacles enough.
