Tin Can Bay Local Area
Dolphin Feeding every morning, year round at Norman Point, next to the boat ramp between 7.00 – 8.30 am. Bookings are not required, however, it's a 'first in - first served' basis in regard to the feeding, so we suggest that you arrive there around 7:00am to ensure you secure your entry for feeding time. Feeding tickets are $10 per person or to simply observe, it's only $5. This is a once in a lifetime experience to interact with this beautiful sea mammal. We are fortunate to be able to visit with the dolphins in the wild. Please abide by all instructions of the supervising personnel as they are entrusted with the care of these magnificent creatures.
At Norman Point you will be able to fish from the pontoon, swim at the public swimming pool and there is a playground and public barbeques. Try your hand at beach fishing in the channels and you can take lunch at the Yacht Club Wednesday to Sunday 12.00 to 2.00 pm and dinner Friday and Saturday 6.00 to 8.00 pm.
Hire a Dinghy and explore Snapper Creek for crabs and fish in secluded inlets. Hire a tinnie from Barnacles or Tin Can Bay Houseboats. If you need tackle and bait there are various outlets in Tin Can Bay for all of your needs
Explore the Environmental Walkway commencing at the library with a history of Tin Can Bay. Follow the pathway through the playground noting points of interest on clearly marked signs as you wander through pockets of natural forest glades and over a bridge where mangroves grow to towering gums holding whistling Kite nests high above. You can continue to Crab Creek and a short walk back to Tin Can Bay Motel.
