Rated 5 out of 5 by Skip68 Excellent experience
All the planned aspects of the activity certainly delivered, especially the dolphin experience. to be able to be so close not in a high, noisy boat but a low, quiet kayak, right there with the dolphins !
Was absolutely magic.

Great to have a go at kayaking. Guide was supportive and informative. Great weather. Saw dolphins at fairly close range. Good workout for arms and shoulders

Rated 5 out of 5 by Topher A very enjoyable morning.
This was a well organised experience. Our guide, Rowan, carefully presented both safety issues and kayaking skill techniques in a relaxed, but still serious way.
Our time on the water was most enjoyable with the weather turning up trumps. Kayaking thru the mangroves was great, with lots of birdlife, plus the need not to run ashore or decapitate oneself on the low branches.
Then we paddled round two wrecks of sailing ships, with Rowan giving us some of their history.
I think everyone had a very enjoyable excursion, with lots of laughter when the kayaks seemed to have a mind of their own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LindAL249 Great way to discover another pocket of Adelaide
Unique experience, great way to unwind and enjoy the waters. Also provides you with the opportunity to get up close to some of the shipwrecks in the area. Particularly enjoyed paddling through the mangroves, very relaxing just don't forget the aeroguard. I would recommend that everyone gives kayaking a go and this was a fantastic first experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Maxi A fun experience!
The kayaks were all ready and the instructor was well-organised and prepared. The trip around Garden Is and the shipwrecks was amazing. Peaceful, serene, interesting and stimulating too. Made me want to buy my own kayak! Really, really loved being visited by lots of dolphins - up close and personal! Would have loved a longer trip but my arms would have given out! Just long enough for a beginner but gave a taste for more!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by George158 Interesting but hard work
The timing of the tour could be better such that all the claimed highlights can be experienced and not restricted by the tides.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Katrina74 fantastic opportunity to explore a side of Adelaide that most don't know about!
This tour was excellent. The guide was friendly and helpful and the sights we got to see were excellent. There weren't too many dolphins, but plenty of shipwrecks, and a little side trip up a canal that reminded me of kayaking the mangroves in Vietnam. I think this is a great trip to do for visitors to Adelaide and for locals too if you don't know this part of the world. Finished off with a good pub meal in Port Adelaide near the Wharf markets - what a great day.
My only caution is to make sure you have good instructions to get to the starting point as it can be a little diffcult to find.
