    Dolphin Discovery Centre

    by Kathrin_E Written May 12, 2009
    Koombana Bay without a single dolphin fin

    Koombana Bay is inhabited by many dolphins. The Dolphin Discovery Centre was opened in 1994 to give visitors an opportunity to see and interact with the wild dolphins of Koombana Bay. There is an interaction zone at the beach where people can stand in the water and get close to them. The centre also offers boat tours and swimming tours. Unfortunately we did not have enough time to join the boat cruise.

    These two websites have all the details and lots of photos (no need to repeat everything here):
    http://dolphins.mysouthwest.com.au/

    However: The dolphins come to visit when, and only when, they decide to. You never know when and for how long. They do not come every day. According to what I read on the board where the recent visits were listed, they come about two or three times per week. You need good luck to see them. So plan enough time to wait. Chances are said to be best in the morning but you never know.
    We were not lucky. We only saw one dolphin patrolling the beach from afar in the evening before.

    And absolute must do in Bunbury is to watch the sun setting into the Indian Ocean. Any where along Ocean Drive is perfect for enjoying the change from day to night.
