“An Adelaide Must Do”

Popeye Motor Launches

Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
Owner description: There’s really only a couple of ways to see Adelaide from the River Torrens and one of those is on board the magnificent Popeye. Award winning daily tours that travel up and down the Torrens from Elder Park, with commentary of the sights and history of our exciting river precinct. The Popeye can also be hired for a private function, a very special way to have an exclusive evening look at the city lights.

We stumbled on the boats on Good Friday, when not much is open. Took it up to the great Adelaide Zoo and caught it back after we finished. They even made a stop at a little café for people who wanted a coffee.

We recently had the enjoyable experience of taking a trip on the 'Popeye' to the Adelaide Zoo and later the return journey. We are N.Z. Seniors and were very kindly given the discounted rate. It was an interesting trip with an informative commentary on the buildings, scenery and bridges we were passing. Highly recommended.

We did a little trip along the river and back which was great. We were given very interesting information along the way. Wasn't very long but not expensive either
