Moreton Bay is home to approximately 600 bottlenose dolphins and each evening as the sun begins to set across the water, a small pod makes their way to the shores of Tangalooma Island Resort. Since 1992, resort guests have had the opportunity to hand feed the dolphins as part of the Tangalooma wild dolphin feeding program.
Currently up to 11 dolphins frequent the shores of Tangalooma, hunting, surfing and playing with fellow pod members. The jetty at Tangalooma is the perfect platform for viewing and observing these wild dolphins as they continuously entertain all with their inquisitive antics. A dedicated Dolphin Care Team records the dolphins’ behaviour each evening, monitoring growth, behaviour and interactions.
Included in selected accommodation and day cruise packages is the opportunity to wade into the water to feed these playful creatures. Day guests travelling on the Dolphin Adventure Tour also have the chance to participate in this unforgettable experience.
Only official guests of the resort are able to participate in this program.
