Monkey Mia is a small resort at the northern tip of the Peron Peninsula, which has been made famous by its frequent visits from the lovely Bottlenose Dolphins. There is a wonderful Dolphin Information Centre Ph: 9948 1366 which has loads of information about the dolphins and some interesting displays.
The major attraction in Monkey Mia is when the dolphins swim upto the shore for the dolphin feeding. They arrive several times a day, and if you are lucky you will get pulled out of the crowd to hand feed one of the dolphins yourself.
Another great way to see the dolphins and the other sea creatures around Monkey Mia, is to join one of the cruises around Shark Bay. Both the Aristocat II and the Shotover leave from the jetty in Monkey Mia and travel around the bay in search of various animals and things to see.
The only accommodation in Monkey Mia is within the Monkey Mia Dolphin Resort, which offers a full range of accommodation styles. Prices vary greatly, although there is something to suit every budget.
