A Guided Tour

Your Skipper on the day will also be your cruise guide. Sit back, relax and enjoy the views as your guide talks you through the local history, famous ships and iconic locations you are cruising through

A Rich Maritime History

The Port Adelaide River is steeped in a rich maritime history that you will discover as you cruise along its length, seeing famous ships and locations. Your cruise guide will point out interesting landmarks and vessels, and we provide a PowerPoint display with additional information for the duration of the cruise.

The Ships Graveyard

Don’t miss out! For the first time you are able to enter Port Adelaide's completely unique Ships Graveyard on a guided cruise. Be amazed as you cruise past giant wrecks, half-submerged in the hidden backwaters of the Port River and learn their history.

Adelaide Dolphin Sanctuary

Enjoy cruising through the Adelaide Dolphin Sanctuary searching for local dolphins, one of the only wild dolphin populations living within a city. Keep an eye out for some of the famous local residents and, during the warmer months, newborn calves! Please note - we do not guarantee a dolphin sighting as these are wild animals and come and go as they please.

International Bird Sanctuary

Travel towards the bird sanctuary where there's an opportunity to see migra­to­ry shore­birds, includ­ing threat­ened species such as Curlew sand­piper as well as well-known Aussie favourites like the Australian Pelican and Pied Cormorant.
