  • Description
    • Get into the water and swim with wild dolphins in their natural habitat
    • Cruise the beautiful waterways around Glenelg
    • See dolphin pods playing from the boat

    Swimming with dolphins is cool, but swimming with wild dolphins outside of an enclosure is absolutely incredible. Jumping in the water with a pod of playful dolphins is a thrilling experience that wildlife lovers will find hard to beat. 

    On this 3.5 hour dolphin cruise you’ll have the opportunity to seek out dolphins, watch them from the boat, and swim right alongside them. It’s the ultimate interactive wild dolphin adventure. You’ll board a mighty 58 foot sailing catamaran at Adelaide’s Glenelg Marina at 7:20am, and head out into the picturesque surrounding waterways soon after. One of the expert crew will brief you on what to do, what not to do, and provide a snorkeling demonstration to get you ready for the excitement ahead.  

    This cruise provider boasts an average of over 40 dolphin sightings per trip, with over 200 spotted on some trips. Sometimes you’ll find dolphins frolicking around the boat’s hulls within minutes, and other times it takes a bit longer to find the pods. During the course of your cruise, you can end up swimming with dolphins for over an hour, though that is sometimes spread over multiple swims with different pods of dolphins. That’s the nature of wild animals, and it’s worth the wait to see them up close and underwater. It’s an unforgettable view and an unbeatable experience.

    I loved the cruise and got to see a lot of dolphins while on the boat. The crew were helpful and friendly. (I'd love to know how you get a job going on dolphin cruises every morning!!) Didn't get to see many dolphins while in the water. Hopefully the algae problem will be fixed soon and I would be happy to come back to do it again.

    Loved it! Easy and fast transaction. The people running the dolphin swim were very friendly and great to deal with. I have already recommended this experience to friends and family who are also now very keen. Great job! Keep up the good work!

    Even though it was overcast and a little choppy the crew still found dolphins and made the whole experience a great one.
