Dolphin Feeding

The highlight of any visit to Tangalooma is the opportunity to hand feed one of the wild bottlenose dolphins that visit the shores each evening at sunset. There are up to 11 of these playful creatures that visit regularly, each with their own distinctive and unique personalities. You can learn more about their quirky ways at our free daily Dolphin Behaviour and Data Collection Presentation in the Marine Education and Conservation Centre.

The wild dolphin feeding program operates to strict guidelines to ensure that the dolphins maintain their natural instincts and independence. The dolphins are only fed between 10 to 20 percent of their daily food requirements to ensure that they also hunt for themselves and do not become reliant on us.

When it comes time to feed the dolphins be prepared to get wet! Feeding the dolphins often requires you to walk into waist-deep water, so wearing shorts or swimwear is ideal. A member of the Dolphin Care Team will be there to guide you through each step of the feeding process.

The wild dolphin feeding experience is included in selected accommodation and day cruise packages booked through Tangalooma.
