What people are saying about Adelaide

Brilliant trip and excellently organised. We arrived and the equipment was all laid out, clean and ready to use. We got lifejackets and a lesson on how to kayak (totally suitable for beginners as we proved). We then went out on the river and saw 2 shipwrecks up close, even kayaking over one of them which was an amazing experience. We then were lucky enough to be greeted by 4 dolphins which came right by the kayak, amazing experience. Then onto an easier kayak through calm mangroves. The guidance was spot on and really was an incredible way to spend the day. Highly recommend.

It was a great adventure & the guides have plenty of experience & knowledge of the area. I would highly recommend this to people travelling sole or in a group. Head to Port Adelaide after for a cold beverage and the Museums/ history of the area.

whether novice or experienced kayaker this is worth the effort. Knowledgable guides introduce the mariteme and natural history of the largest mangrove forest in the Southern hemisphere.

Beautiful day, easy to use kayak. Tyler and James were kind, informative and helpful. We saw 6 dolphins and I loved the Amazon mangroves. Thankyou for a fantastic morning.

Michael, our tour guide was a wealth of information. City tour was cancelled due to not enough attending.
