Dolphin watching

Join the crowds and watch the dolphins

What we say: 3.5 stars

A big draw in Lovina is the possibility of watching dolphins in their natural environment. It is a bit of a curiosity really as the relaxed beach atmosphere is arguably more of an asset.

Nevertheless, every man and his dog will be able to set you up for some dolphin watching in Lovina. When you're walking around town, numerous touts will offer you a variety of dolphin watching possibilities.

Rates start at 60,000 rupiah per person with a 50% discount if no dolphins are spotted! Each boat holds up to four people and most trips start at sunrise and lasts for two hours, with the chances of spotting dolphins better than even.

Once a pod of dolphins is spotted, your boat will be competing with others for prime position and it can all seem a bit surreal. If you can ignore the crowds, it's a pleasant morning on the ocean — even if you luck out and don't see a dolphin.

No word on what the dolphins think of all this — that they keep coming back leaves us wondering if they really are as smart as people say.
