Don’t be too alarmed if a dolphin suddenly leaps out of the water beside you if you are swimming in either the Pumicestone Passage or on the surf side of Bribie Island. Sightings of dolphins frolicking in the water and hunting for fish are common on Bribie Island. The Department of Natural Resources lists the bottlenose and the threatened Indo-Pacific hump-back dolphin as being resident species.

Bribie Island does have dingoes, but they are very shy.
