  • Description
    • See dolphins playing in their natural environment
    • Cruise around the picturesque waterways off the coast of Glenelg
    • Interact with dolphins while the crew keeps you informed and safe

    Seeing dolphins in the wild is every bit as magical as you might expect it to be, and nothing can compare to getting up close and personal with a pod of the playful creatures. So if you’re keen to see them for yourself, head out on a dolphin watching cruise and you and the crew can track them down together.

    Starting from Adelaide’s Glenelg Marina nice and early, you’ll set out into the beautiful surrounding coastal waterways and start searching. Enjoy cruising around on a mighty 58 foot sailing catamaran with a friendly crew there to give you a briefing about the day and informative commentary as you go. Sometimes you spot dolphins within minutes of leaving the marina, and other times it takes a little longer to seek them out, but that’s the nature of wild animals and it’s completely worth the wait. 

    As a ‘watcher’ you’ll have an ideal view of any dolphin encounters just by the boat, so you won’t miss a moment of the magic. You’ll cruise around through beautiful scenery from about 7:45am to 11:30am. This cruise provider boasts an average of over 40 dolphin sightings per trip, with some trips seeing over 200. So get out there and get excited to see the grace and playfulness of wild dolphins for yourself.

    The staff knew a lot and you could tell it was just a job to them, it is a passion. The way they handled people who were seasick was amazing too, id be grossed out by that but they were very caring

    We thoroughly enjoyed our outing! We decided to take this excursion because we had a day with no winery visits planned, and we booked it in an off the cuff manner as a time filler -- not expecting too much. We were more than pleasantly surprised! The boat was beautiful, the coastline and views just stunning. This turned out to be a highlight of our trip to South Australia! Our photos were just exceptional. The dolphin cruise followed by lunch, some shopping, and an afternoon on the beach made for a perfect day. We would highly recommend to others!

    Loved the fresh sea air, the wonderful dolphins in their natural habitat, and viewing the suburbs along the coastline. Would loved to have had a hot coffee and muffin while on board!
