Dolphins Feeding At Tin Can Bay Queensland

Tin Can Bay has long been recognized as one of the best spots to feed the beautiful dolphins in their own habitat. Once you are in Tin Can Bay, you will locate the Norman Point boat ramp where professional handlers feed these majestic creatures daily.

The dolphins are so well trained, that they come in from the deep ocean to the shallow waters for their regular feeding times and to entertain people from right around the world.

Feeding times commence at 8 am daily, but to be assured a good spot for viewing and photographs, it is strongly suggested that you be at the boat ramp somewhere between 7-8 am.

For early arrivals, there is a cafe right near the water where you can grab a coffee or breakfast and sit beside the water’s edge waiting for the dolphin’s arrival.

These dolphins are well known to the Tin Can Bay community and have been named Patch (the female dolphin) and the very playful, well-loved Mystique, who is the male dolphin that loves people and frolicking in the waters daily for everyone’s enjoyment.

Mystique is the elderly dolphin, who has remarkably been coming to the waters edge daily for over 24 years. Some say he is the show-off of them all and clearly loves all the attention that his beauty brings.

Make sure you come prepared for being knee-deep in the waters if you are wishing to touch, feed or take a close-up photograph of these beautiful creatures. Wearing appropriate footwear and clothing is a must. And bring a towel for the kids as most of them get a little wetter then parents expect.
