Then we are travelling along the historic Port River on a relaxing boat cruise where we will see dolphins, historic sites and mangroves. The Port River is special, it’s part of the Adelaide Dolphin Sanctuary and is the only place in the world where wild dolphins live within a city. It is home to more than 30 frequently observed Indo- Pacific Bottlenose Dolphins, most of which have been identified and named.
