Dolphin Cruise from Adelaide with Optional Dolphin Swim

    What to Expect
    At Marina Pier in Glenelg, just 6 miles (10 km) south of Adelaide, hop aboard your catamaran for your dolphin-watching cruise on Holdfast Bay. (One easy way to get to Glenelg is by tram, a 20-minute ride that operates regularly from the city.)

    As you depart the marina and set off across the water, watch for the wild dolphins who love to swim around the boat. Thousands of dolphins call Holdfast Bay home, so you are extremely likely to see them. If you select the swimming upgrade when booking, you’ll spend up to one hour in the water with different dolphin pods. A wetsuit, snorkel and mask are provided so you can dip under the water to watch them swim and play.

    Your cruise ends with return to the marina in Glenelg.

    It was wonderful seeing the wild dolphins in the open sea. We did not swim with them but it was just as exciting watching them from the boat. Just be prepared to wait in between as the crew tries to spot the dolphins as they brought the boat around. They definitely seemed to

    the staff are all fully-qualified marine biologists dedicated to caring for dolphins and I commend them. I only went in for a swim once because I had horrendous sea sickness but the staff were so kind and friendly I couldn’t fault them!
