Wild Dolphin Feeding Experience
The daily wild dolphin feeding experience is included with the price of every Tangalooma Resort accommodation purchase (except the ‘Run of the House’ package). It includes hand feeding one of the wild bottlenose dolphins that visit the resort’s shore every evening.
The Dolphin Care Team facilities the unique wild dolphin feeding experience and only gives the wild bottlenose dolphins about 10-20% of their daily food allowance so that they do not become reliant on the Tangalooma team and still hunt for themselves.
The dolphins that come to shore do so of their own free will. You might notice that the same dolphins don’t visit every night. Some of them are just too busy playing out in the bay.
The ones that do visit though are part of two family pods of dolphins.
Tangalooma Resort Activities
Besides dolphins, there are also Kookaburra and Pelican feeding experiences onsite. As well as a plethora of other land and water-based activities.
Some Tangalooma Resort guest favorite activities include the boat and kayak hires, snorkeling and scuba diving tours, and various cruises.
Land based tours largely consist of getting off the beaten track and exploring the third largest sand island via 4wd. However, if relaxing by the pool is more your style then you are in luck since Tangalooma Resort has a few of those too.
