I must agree, of all the WHC sites that I visited while I was in Australia, this was the most disappointing. The dolphin feeding session is DEFINITELY NOT worth the trip. But as a consolation, some of the beaches there were really beautiful.And if you get a chance, the exciting 4WD adventures around the white sandy "deserts" and sand surfing is really fun!

Travelled to Shark Bay on a 4WD backpackers tour up the west coast of Western Australia from Perth to Coral Bay in April 2002.
The most publicised aspect of Shark Bay is the Dolphin feeding at Monkey Mia however I found it personally dissapointing. The half hour "show" involves three rather domesticated dolphins. Much rather see dolphins in the wild.
Some of the coastline contrasts dry red and ochre cliffs with turquoise blue waters.
A good place to stay is at the camping ground at Nanga on the freycinet Peninsula.
