Hand feeding dolphin! Photo

Hi Folks,

We had such a cool morning!
We are in Tin Can Bay, Queensland, Australia and there is a small becah in the town where some Indo Pacific Humpback Dolphins come to be hand fed each morning.

Naturally we were up bright and early!

This one is named Mystique and is 22 years old.

Getting this close to a wild dolphin it truly a wonderful experience!

Fantastic!

But if you can hand feed them then they are not truly wild any longer are they.

I am jealous though!
