The Dolphin Sanctuary Mangroves Tour is 90 minutes of fun exploring the Dolphin Sanctuary one of Adelaide's "secret spots". Located just 30 minutes from the Adelaide CBD it is an area of surpassing beauty. The sheltered mangrove lined creeks are home to a fascinating array of marine life, birds and the Port River Dolphins.
It's an amazing adventure for all ages 8 years and over, and kayaking is the most environmentally sensitive way to explore and interact with the dolphins. The tour is very easy paced with plenty of time for photos, storytelling by your guide, and searches for the Port River Dolphins. When the Port River Dolphins come to play it is a memory you will treasure for ever!
If you have never kayaked before this is the best way to give it a try...you will want to come back for more!
