Watching dolphins living free in the wild is of course the prime attraction of Kiluan Bay. Small boats can be rented from local fishermen for 250,000 – 300,000 IDR, so you can get a closer look at the tens or sometimes even hundreds of dolphins leaping across the waters in seeming unison. The dolphins are a highly intelligent species, and are also exceptionally friendly. Seeing a boat, they love to swim and jump around close by in the surrounding waters. Some will even let you touch them. Aside from the dolphins, Sea Turtles can also be seen gliding beneath the surface of the water.
As a nesting ground for turtles, depending on the time of year, visitors can observe the turtles climbing the beach at night to lay their eggs, or watch as the tiny hatchlings make the journey back to the ocean.
