Arrived at 11am and 4 dolphins were playing close to ramp, it was a cold day in June but no rain or wind, didn't take long to warm up. Very tranquil spot, the mangroves, ships graveyard and highlight - the dolphins. Oh and of course...More

Hi we would be able to offer a transfer from Glenelg to the kayaking. After the kayaking we would drop you to the Pt Adelaide Train station where you could catch a train into Adelaide and then tram back to Glenelg
