Just 30 minutes from the Adelaide CBD, join Leonie our Adventurous Women ® Host exploring the Dolphin Sanctuary and Ships Graveyard Maritime Heritage Trail by kayak.

Discover one of Adelaide's "secret spots" amongst sheltered timeless mangrove lined creeks, home to a fascinating array of marine life, birds and With luck, we might catch a glimpse of the friendly Port River Dolphins. Kayaking is the most environmentally sensitive way to explore and interact with the dolphins in the area and also allows you to truly enjoy the beauty of the area, the bird life and peace and quiet.

The Ships Graveyard is a unique feature, it has over 20 ship wrecks in the area, which make up the maritime heritage trail. On our tour, we will be visiting at least 2 of them.

Our kayak tour is approximately three hours of fun with a professional, experienced guide who will lead us on an easy paced, unforgettable adventure allowing plenty of time for photos. We might have a chance to sport the Port River Dolphins come to play it is a memory you will treasure forever!  

This tour is suitable for all levels of fitness and experience and includes basic tuition in safe kayaking.
On our return we will enjoy lunch, treats and a glass of bubbly (or something soft), and some time to chat in the Garden Island reserve. 

We depart and return to the Angus Inlet Boat Club where there is a club house, private toilets, private beach and ramps as well as secure lock up parking while we are out on our tour.

Please meet our guide, who will be wearing a bright orange AW cap outside the club gates and ensure you arrive early so we can be paired up, safety gear fitted and our training completed  for the start time.
