What You Can Expect

Dolphin Cruise from Adelaide with Optional Dolphin Swim

Dolphin-Watching and Swimming Cruise

Make your own way to the seaside resort of Glenelg on the shores of Holdfast Bay, 6 miles (10 km) from central Adelaide. An easy way to travel there is by tram, running every 15 minutes from Adelaide; the trip takes about 20 minutes (own expense).

When you arrive, board the catamaran at the Marina Pier, just in front of the Oyster Bar, and head off to see dolphins playing in the bay. The wild dolphins love swimming around the boat, so you can be sure of a close-up encounter, whether you’re watching from the boat or swimming in the water.

If you choose the swim with dolphins upgrade, you can spend up to an hour in the water with different pods of dolphins, witnessing their grace underwater and hearing their playful whistles. Holdfast Bay is home to thousands of dolphins, and you have a 100% success rate of spotting them.

Fabulous way to spend the morning! Lots of Dolphins

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2013

The dolphin excursion was fantastic. The dolphins were so close to the boat it was amazing. The actual swimming with the dolphin I found to be difficult. It was hard to hang onto the rope while being towed by the boat, listen to the crew tell you which side to look not then look for dolphins, and swim and breathe at the same time. The day we went the water was a bit chilly, so that was another factor for me. So I bailed and went back up on the boat to view them. That was the best part for me. The dolphins actually raced the boat on our way back and it was a large pod. Great experience! I definitely recommend this tour!
