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. Once your adventure comes to an end, you will be taken back to the marina. Spend some time checking out the many restaurants and shops that grace the shoreline.

We had a wonderful experience. The weather was perfect and the water was clear and we saw so many dolphins. Being in the water with them was a surreal experience. We could also see them very clearly from the boat deck. The crew were very informative and friendly and I would recommend this activity.

Fantastic afternoon on the water. Great value for money . Saw and swam with multiple pods of dolphins . Only suggestion is to do the morning cruise as the lunchtime one you get the morning used /wet wetsuits which are a challenge to put on - and very limited space to get them on and not a nice feeling to be sitting in a wet wetsuit for around 50 minutes . Overall though was great - staff engaging and knowledgeable

A great morning out sailing. Swimming with the dolphins was amazing they were so close. Trip was very professional and well organised. They also didn’t coerce the dolphins at all and treated them as wild animals which was great to see. Highlight of our trip to Adelaide.
