Winter can be the best time for kayaking is adelaide!!

For those in the know winter is a great time for paddling in Adelaide. Although it might be cool temperature wise winter is the calmest time wind wise. The wind is the biggest issue when kayaking. It makes progress hard and really makes you cold at any time of the year. We will be conducting kayak tours, hire and lessons through to the end of the July school holidays before having a break. We operate from Wednesday to Sunday and bookings for available sessions can be made online at any time. If it turns out to be a wild and windy day we do not operate and can transfer your booking or refund your fee. Don't hide from winter get out and enjoy the adventure of exploring the Adelaide Dolphin Sanctuary and Ships Graveyard by kayak.

“We visited in the school holidays with our family of four, including our boys aged 4 and 6. Our tour guide David did a great job of showing us the boats and putting us at ease, and we were lucky enough to immediately see some dolphins. We had three come really close to our kayak, within a few metres of my four year old son who was very excited. Our 6 year old boy counted 33 dolphins on the tour all up. The mangrove tour was especially cool.We felt really safe, had a great time, and the length of the tour was great for kids. We’d love to come back again.”(telenak2019, May,2021)

 

“Before we got in the Kayak we watched dolphin’s fociking.

Great value, will be this year’s Xmas presents and we intend coming back. Thanks Jane & Geoff” (April,2021) 

 

“Had a great morning with this company. We did the self-guided tour(hire), but the guides/instructors still helped us get set up in our kayaks (as total newbies) and gave advice on where to explore. They also helped us get in and out of the water so we didn’t have to get our shoes wet 🙂 We saw lots of dolphins, paddled into the mangroves, and there were a couple of shipwrecks to look at too. Really good spot for it as the water is quite sheltered between the two islands.” (delta1413, May 2021)
