What to Expect

This 3 hour guided kayak tour offers fun for the whole family, exploring Adelaide's Dolphin Sanctuary and Ships' Graveyard Maritime Heritage Trail, which is just 30 minutes from the Adelaide CBD.


One of Adelaide's secret spots and full of surprising beauty, these sheltered mangrove-lined creeks are home to a fascinating array of marine life, birds, and the Port River dolphins.


The Ship's Graveyard is a unique feature of the area with spectacular relics from the past, which have been abandoned in the river and left to be explored.


With kayaking is the most environmentally sensitive way to explore and interact with the dolphins, there's a feel-good factor to this family friendly experience, and when the Port River dolphins come to play, memories are sure to be made by all.
