If you're visiting Adelaide and looking to interact with the amazing sea life and creatures, then embark on a Southern Ocean adventure with the Adelaide Wildlife and Whale Discovery Tour.

The coveted Duck Ship departs from the Granite Island Causeway and motors its way to the northern side of Granite island, revealing exceptional views of the Victor Harbour shoreline. The next point of interest is Seal Rock, where passengers can watch the New Zealand Fur Seals and Australian Sea Lions basking in the sunshine as they flip and flop into the ocean - don't be surprised if their friendly demeanour inclines them to swim up to the boat for a quick hello.

While continuing towards Wright Island and the Bluff, your tour-guide will provide exceptional commentary on the whaling history of the area.

Past the Bluff is West Island, home to a conservation park where resides a series of unique Seabirds such as the Cormorant, Shearwater, and Petrel. While motoring past the West Island, keep your eyes peeled for the Common and Bottlenose dolphins dipping and diving into the ocean.

After 90-minutes, the Big Duck returns to the Granite Island Causeway terminus after viewing the spectacular cliffs of Kings Beach and Waitpinga.

The Wildlife and Whale Discovery Tour is a must-do experience when visiting Adelaide.

Very friendly crew
Aihua Gao 2 years ago

Very friendly crew. We saw seals and lots of birds and had company from some common dolphins during the journey. Enjoyed it. Although my two and half-year-old boy slept through most of the trip. Turned out it is a big rocking cot for him! At least he saw the dolphins too.

Took 2 grand-kids along for the 1.5-hour cruise out from Victor Harbour and they were totally rapt
Bruce Hornsey 3 years ago

Took 2 grand-kids along for the 1.5-hour cruise out from Victor Harbour and they were totally rapt. Great boat, friendly crew and magnificent scenery with abundant dolphins, seals and birds to be seen. Very considerate with those wanting to photograph or just look. The boat is powerful, well equipped, rides well on the open sea and you feel at all times that you are in competent hands. The full throttle circle work at the end topped the thrills off and the spontaneous applause was well earned. Thank you!

My family had a great time on this tour
Claire 3 years ago

My family had a great time on this tour. It was great fun speeding along - wildlife sightings were an added bonus! We loved it!

Both tour packages are offered all year round and depart at 1pm and 2pm. Routes can be dependent on weather conditions. Bring a hat and wear sunscreen for protection while you are out in the sunshine.
