This is a fun and entertaining dolphin Kayak Tour adventure. Enjoy a 3-hour kayak tour with a friendly local guide and head out to see the beautiful wildlife of Adelaide.

“The Ship’s Graveyard is a unique feature with over 20 “wrecks” to view. All this makes for a sensational adventure and kayaking is the most environmentally sensitive way to explore.”

Bottle nose dolphins – Port River, Adelaide

You’ll see beautiful mangrove creeks, teeming with life and ancient shipwrecks that provide incredible photo opportunities. Be amazed at the array of seabirds and you have the maximum chance of seeing the playful river dolphins who will come right up to the kayak.

It’s easy paced with plenty of time for photos. When the Port River Dolphins come to play it is a memory you will treasure forever! The sanctuary (part of South Australia’s largest port) has a rich Aboriginal and European cultural background and a number of noteworthy landmarks to explore.

“We visited in the school holidays with our family of four, including our boys aged 4 and 6. Our tour guide David did a great job of showing us the boats and putting us at ease, and we were lucky enough to immediately see some dolphins.

We had three come really close to our kayak, within a few metres of my four year old son who was very excited.

Our 6 year old boy counted 33 dolphins on the tour all up! The mangrove tour was especially cool. We felt really safe, had a great time, and the length of the tour was great for kids. We’d love to come back again.”
