The Adelaide Dolphin Sanctuary is an area of incredible beauty and a wetland of "national significance." It is one of Adelaide's "secret spots!" The sheltered, tree lined creeks are an ideal environment for a family kayaking adventure. Home to a fascinating array of marine life, birds and the Port River Dolphins, the sanctuary is a perfect place to spend your day.
Travelling by kayak is a unique way to experience an encounter with the dolphins or view the wrecks in the Ship's Graveyard Maritime Heritage Trail.
