Monkey Mia dolphin

At Monkey Mia there is a wonderful chance to interact with these beautiful animals. The dolphins are completely wild and choose to come in to the shallows to interact with rangers and excited observers.


No one is allowed to touch the dolphins, not even the rangers. The dolphins, however, do choose to rub their snouts against the rangers' legs and respond to their voices.


It was lovely to watch completely natural behaviour rather than the circus tricks put on in Aquariums.
