Dolphin Sanctuary Kayak Tours


It’s not every day that you get the opportunity to paddle your way through a 10,000 year old mangrove forest, past shipwrecks of relics past and view resident dolphins within close vicinity. It’s a special experience that can’t be replicated.

The sanctuary is home to over 30 resident dolphins and 300 transient dolphins.

Participants don’t need any prior kayaking experience, and we travel at a comfortable pace to accommodate intermediate fitness levels.

Our guides are marine biologists who will guide you through creeks whilst listening to local Aboriginal stories. We view the abundant bird life, marine mammals and other creatures that make up the intricate eco system.

The Sanctuary boasts a 10,000 year-old mangrove forest, which makes the ultimate feeding grounds for dolphins due to the abundance of seagrass, saltmarsh, and the tidal flats and creeks. For those interested in bird watching, the Adelaide International Bird Sanctuary shares a big part of the northern coastal habitat.

This area is also home to numerous shipwrecks dating back to 1856.

This is truly a unique part of Adelaide that you simply must see.
