Full description
Spend your vacation doing something unique and unforgettable on an excursion that takes you out into the waters, and swim alongside wild dolphins. On this 3.5-hour tour, you are guaranteed to see dolphins, which are one of the Earth’s most fascinating and curious creatures. Meet at the Holdfast Shores Marina in Glenelg, a mere 15 minutes outside of Adelaide. From there, board the 'Temptation', a 58-foot colossal sailing catamaran. As the boat cruises, experience the beauty of Australia's southern coastline. Eventually, come to rest in the waters where the wild dolphins will come to greet you and play in the waters. Don your wetsuit, mask, and snorkel, and take the plunge into the waters. Experience the breathtaking moment when you see dolphins underwater for the first time. Watch and listen; their grace and playfulness is stunning and the sounds of their whistles and echo location noises are mesmerizing.

It's hard to put into words how incredible this experience was. We got to get in the water along with pods of wild dolphins, some of which were so close you could almost touch them as they showed off their beautiful nature. So amazing to witness the creatures in their natural habitat. It it was honestly one of the most enjoyable moments of my life. We had an exceptional and knowledgeable crew to guide us through the day and I could not recommend this trip enough!

It was such an amazing and unique experience. Staff was very helpful and made us comfortable. They gave important information and answered all questions clearly. It was not bumpy at all so it was a pleasant sailing. Nevertheless, you may consider taking ginger pills 30mins before the trip. Dolphins tended to swim near to the front deck most of the time. If you have a large group of people on board, you will get 1-2 chances at max to swim under the front deck. If you love sea life as me, this won’t be enough for you. On the other hand, I am fully satisfied what I’ve experienced. Thanks.
