This adventure was perfect for a family with young children. We have seen amazing sights and our guide was so friendly, happy and helpful. Not only will we be back again, but our children are asking to come back for birthdays!

Hi we would be able to offer a transfer from Glenelg to the kayaking. After the kayaking we would drop you to the Pt Adelaide Train station where you could catch a train into Adelaide and then tram back to Glenelg
