3. Adelaide: 3.5-Hour Guaranteed Wild Dolphin Watching Cruise

Enjoy a half-day cruise looking for some of the world’s most delightful creatures, departing from Marina Pier, Holdfast Shores, Glenelg. Dolphins are among the earth’s most curious mammals and you will get up-close-and-personal with the beautiful beasts from the decks of the Temptation catamaran. You will be welcomed on board the 58-foot sailing vessel by an enthusiastic crew. Sometimes you will see your first dolphins within minutes of cruising. They seem to come out of nowhere to play around Temptation’s hulls. But be assured they are not coaxed in any way. These are wild dolphins that simply know the vessel, and know that they are not in any danger. As the gulf is home to over 1,000 common and bottlenose dolphins, the cruise comes with a money-back guarantee of sightings. The dolphins are only just out of reaching distance from the deck, enabling you to capture their playful displays on film.

What people are saying about Glenelg

It was such an amazing and unique experience. Staff was very helpful and made us comfortable. They gave important information and answered all questions clearly. It was not bumpy at all so it was a pleasant sailing. Nevertheless, you may consider taking ginger pills 30mins before the trip. Dolphins tended to swim near to the front deck most of the time. If you have a large group of people on board, you will get 1-2 chances at max to swim under the front deck. If you love sea life as me, this won’t be enough for you. On the other hand, I am fully satisfied what I’ve experienced. Thanks.

very excellent crew. Will, Zach and Izzy very professional Watched Zach coach a hesitant swimmer get into the water. He was so kind and understanding towards her it took my notice. In the end she finally got in and the look on her face getting out was unbelievable. Thank you Zach for giving this lady a lifetime experience which she would not have had without Zachs encouragement.
