  • Description
    Explore Adelaide’s own Dolphin Sanctuary and shipwreck heritage trail around Garden Island by sea kayak. On this sea kayak tour you will paddle through wonderful mangrove lined creeks and see a wealth of bird life and sea creatures along with shipwrecks.

    There are over 25 shipwrecks scattered around this area. Some were grand sailing ships others were tugs or barges each with its own unique history including one of the very first iron built ships in the world.

    This trip is ideal for families and people who just want to relax and soak up the heritage this area has to offer. The lush forest of Grey Mangroves provides a haven for extensive bird and sea life.

    Located at Garden Island, only 25 minutes from Adelaide CBD, it makes it easy access for a day which is out of the ordinary. Tours run spring to late autumn and are conducted in double sea kayaks, which are easy to paddle, stable and very comfortable.
