Explore Adelaide’s own Dolphin Sanctuary and shipwreck heritage trail around Garden Island by sea kayak. On this kayak tour it is rare that we don’t see the resident dolphins swimming and playing in the waters. At times they will even socialise with us making it a non forgettable experience when they do. We also paddle through wonderful mangrove lined creeks and see a wealth of bird life and sea creatures along with shipwrecks. There are over 25 wrecks scattered around this area. Some were grand sailing ships others were tugs or barges, each with its own unique history. We will get up close with one of the very first iron built ships ever made in the world – the Santiago. A grand full sail ship that was built in Glasgow in Scotland back in the 1840’s. It had nearly a one hundred years of severs, which is absolutely remarkable for a ship.
This trip is ideal for families and people who just want to relax and soak up the heritage this area has to offer. The lush forest of Grey Mangroves provides a haven for extensive bird and sea life. Located only 25minutes from Adelaide CBD at Garden Island it makes it easy access for a day which is out of the ordinary. Oh don’t be put of by the dull scenery on the drive there, this spot is an oasis just a stones throw from Port Adelaide.
