Stand Up Paddle Boarding is all the rage.  The calm waters around Garden Island in the sensational Adelaide Dolphin Sanctuary is the best location to try this great activity for the first time or for more experienced paddlers to explore this amazing part of Adelaide. As part of the tour we will introduce you to the basics of Standup Paddle Boarding(SUP), the foundation skills, water safety and awareness that will open a new world of activity and adventure. We then go exploring the sheltered waters of the Dolphin Sanctuary around Garden Island to spend some time with the Port River Dolphins and explore the amazing mangrove creeks.

Exploring this sensational area by SUP is the most environmentally sensitive way to view the incredible Port River Dolphins who usually make an appearance.

This tour is the best way to trial SUP boarding and includes an on water safety and skills lesson lead by one of our friendly and fully qualified instructors. SUP boarding is an easy activity to get into and with the advice of our instructors you will develop the best techniques, avoid bad habits and become aware of critical safety issues. Quality boards, paddles are supplied and selected so that your entry into SUP boarding is easy! Activities focus on individual safety and comfortable paddling in calm water.

I enjoyed all parts of the Cape to Cape. The accomodation was basic but a lot better than camping out. The combination of Sue Hile & Emily & Simon was special. Thanks for the amazing walk.

Yet again I enjoyed every minute of a great Adventurous Women event! Fabulous fun doning the camo gear, smearing my face with more camo colors, then pretending to run around the place shooting at everyone! What an amazing experience - another 1st for me, but won't be the last. The absolutely scrumptious home-made gourmet meal at the end was awesome, washed down with a few drops of bubbly. A great way to get to meet and make peace with some of the other ladies I spent the day shooting at! Definitely looking forward to doing this one again... bring it on!!

Cape To Cape 2012

Having now completed the Cape to Cape journey, a long-time dream of mine, gave me such appreciation for our beautiful landscape, rugged coastline and magnificent oceans that demand our respect. Being given the means and support to do this, at times, challenging walk by Adventurous Women to fulfill this rewarding experience makes me feel so privileged. Sharing the week with such a lovely like-minded group of women up for the challenge was uplifting as we endeavoured, no matter our age, to complete this renowned track.
