Dolphin Cruises – Port Adelaide South Australia

Namely they are Dolphin Explorer and Port Princess Dolphin Cruises. (For contact details please read on.)In our cruise Dolphin Explorer took 2 and half hours to take us along the Port river. The ride is comfortable since it is not going to rough sea. On the way you will see big ships which comes into port. Unfortunately on the day we went it started raining so it was bit cold. Since the big boats are having fully covered restaurants no need to worry about the weather.When talking about Dolphins it is bit frustrating since in our cruise we only saw few Dolphins at the start.

Since it costs $18 for an adult with meal I think it is value for money, so we thought to have another go later some day to check out more Dolphi…
