Try your luck to sight for any dolphins at Sisters Island

Once upon a time, there were two sisters- Minah and Lina. They were best friends and are just inseparable. One day, Lina was kidnapped by a pirate, who wanted to make the younger sister of the two his wife because of her beauty. Powerless to stop the pirate, Minah decided to swim after the pirate and his ship in a desperate attempt to save her younger sister. Unfortunately, she drowned. Upon seeing that, Lina jumped off the ship in order to save Minah. However, just as she broke into the water, a giant wave crashed and she too, drowned. From the spots where the sisters perished, two islands emerged from underneath and this is how the islands were named.
Sisters island has since developed into a marine park, with guided walks that are conducted free of charge. There have been sightings of wild dolphins roaming around the area since the marine park was commissioned, so do give the park and try!

The system is sound simulated- on fire, a realistic shotgun ‘bang’ is produced and hits are indicated by the sound of breaking clay. If you and your partner has not done this before, do give this a try!
