Next, move along to Dolphin Lagoon where you can watch the pink dolphins playing with eachother and demonstrating their natural abilities. While you are here take the rare opportunity to swim with the Indo-Pacific Humbacked dolphins. Learn how to give them simple hand cues, whistle and feed them. Sessions happen daily (except Wednesdays) at 9.45am and cost $150 per person.
