Noosa’s resident Bottlenose Dolphins
Bottlenose dolphins are intelligent, and charismatic creatures with their curved mouths give the appearance of a smile. They have been known to come to the aid of other animals, including humans, in distress.
They live in warm waters around the globe and feed on bottom-dwelling fish, shrimp and squid. They can reach speeds of over 28 km an hour, surfacing every two or three times a minute to breathe.
Bottlenose dolphins are social and travel in groups. They communicate with each other by using squeaks and whistles.
Our resident pod of dolphins are usually found between Laguna Bay & Sunshine Beach. They can recognise underwater landmarks that mark their territory.
