The crystal waters of the reserve--teaming with wildlife--attract nearly 100,000 visitors each year, who come for the opportunity to interact with bottlenose dolphins. A guided tour of the Shark Bay Marine Park offers a glimpse of other marine species as well, including dugongs, manta rays, and turtles. For an insight into the area's cultural history, take a 1.5 km (1 mi) loop walk across dunes. Put Monkey Mia Reserve at the forefront of your travel plans using our Monkey Mia trip itinerary site .
