Great way to spend an afternoon. Dolphin Explorer Cruises are great value and very fun. We saw many dolphins on our cruise. These cruises are also a good way to see ships in port.

21/2 hours on a comfortable ferry, a fascinating commentary and lots of dolphins seen on our cruise from Port Adelaide. Absolutely amazing value for $8!! Food and drinks available on board if required and are reasonably priced. Highly recommended.
