Other dates/times may be available for groups and private tours. BOOKINGS ESSENTIAL. Call us or book on-line
The Sanctuary is home to 30 or more bottle nosed dolphins and thanks to the works of researcher Mike Bossley they are being given increased protection. Mike was drawn to the area by a story about a young dolphin swimming with a race horse at Port Adelaide...
