If you are coming to Denham Shark Bay to visit the Dolphins at Monkey Mia, Denham is a great place to base yourself.
We are just a short 30 minute drive to Monkey Mia, the advantage of staying in Denham is you have all the amenities here including fuel, restaurants, cafes, supermarkets, newsagent, chemist, tours and great fishing off the jetty which is right in town.
The feeding time for the Dolphins is from 7.45am to 12 noon, they are allowed to feed the Dolphins 3 times a day within these times. They feed 5 dolphins only and it is up to the dolphins if they come in or not.
Some days you get really lucky and you can see around 20 dolphins come in and then they really party as the photograph above shows you.
The dolphins visit nearly everyday but it does pay to plan you trip and leave yourself an extra day just incase you miss them on your first day.
Be rest assured there is a lot to do in Shark Bay to fill in a few days, you will go away wishing you had allowed more time in this most unique and fantastic place.
Denham is the main town in the Shark Bay World Heritage listed area and is the gateway for all the fun and excitement that happens here.
So if you want to go to Dirk Hartog Island, Francis Peron National Park, Blue Lagoon Pearl Farm or anyone of the many tours available, Denham is the place to be.
