Description

Enjoy a day visit or stay longer and enjoy this special part of the Shark Bay World Heritage Area.

Dolphin viewing

The best way to see dolphins is to join one of the morning dolphin viewing experiences. Dolphins visit the beach more frequently in the early morning when they are offered small amounts of fresh fish. They sometimes return in the afternoons to hunt fish in the shallows. Please respect the dolphins by never touching or approaching them.

Swimming and snorkelling

The clear waters of Monkey Mia are suited to swimming and snorkelling but these activities are permitted only outside of the dolphin interaction area.

When swimming, snorkelling or diving:

  • Be aware of dangerous marine life, including sharks.
  • Always swim, dive or snorkel with at least one other person.
  • Be aware of boats in the vicinity.

Tours

Boat charters enabling you to see dolphins, dugongs, manta rays, turtles and other marine species can be booked from Monkey Mia.

Local Indigenous guides offer cultural tours of the reserve.

Boating

A boat ramp is provided for access to the waters of Shark Bay Marine Park. No boating is allowed in the dolphin interaction area. There is a five-knot speed zone 200 metres each side of the jetty and extending 300 metres offshore. Please don’t feed the dolphins.

Trails

Wulyibidi Yaninyina Trail

Named from the Malgana Aboriginal language term for ‘walking Peron’, the trail winds across the coastal sandplain and acacia shrubland. Information along the way provides a good introduction Shark Bay’s World Heritage values and to the European history of the region.

The trail is best experienced early in the day or late in the afternoon when birdlife is more active.

Distance: 4 km or shorter loop. Time: Allow 1-2 hours or 25 minutes for the short loop. Difficulty: Class 2 (moderate to deep sand in places).

Take care, be aware

In this fragile ecosystem, the coastal dunes and sandplain are easily eroded. Please stay on the beach or trails. Please also take all of your rubbish with you. Wear a hat and sunscreen and carry drinking water, especially during the hotter months of the year.

No camping

Camping is not allowed in the Monkey Mia car park. The Monkey Mia Resort has full accommodation facilities.
