WHAT TO EXPECT
Spend half a day in historic Port Adelaide, just 20 minutes from the city centre. The Port is home to heritage-listed buildings, the South Australian Maritime Museum, the South Australian Aviation Museum, the National Railway Museum, and Fishermen's Wharf Market. When you're not wandering along with the historic buildings, pubs, museums, and galleries, check out the Adelaide Dolphin Sanctuary and Ships Graveyard Maritime Heritage Trail on a guided tour.
On this kayak tour, you'll get to explore a different side of Port Adelaide. Hop on a kayak adventure to spot and learn about the local marine wildlife. On this tour, a highly experienced and qualified guide will make sure you get the most out of the experience by helping you get up close to the animals. You'll visit the first known permanent metropolitan dolphin population in the world, home to over 40 resident Bottlenose dolphins.
After the dolphin sanctuary, the tour will visit the Garden Island Ships Graveyard Maritime Heritage Trail, one of the largest and most diverse ship graveyards in the world. Boasting the remains of sailing ships, steamers, motor vessels, ferries, barges, dredgers, and pontoons, the site provides a unique glimpse into Port Adelaide's past. Containing vessels dating from 1856, the graveyard is a haven for birdlife and marine creatures best seen by kayak.
With over 25 shipwrecks in the area, and several almost completely visible, you will get to see these vessels during the kayaking tour. Be sure to ask your guide plenty of questions to learn the history behind these vessels. The tour includes lunch at a local pub, water bottles, safety equipment, and transport back to Adelaide CBD.
