Temptation Sailing Wild Dolphin Tour | Summer School Holidays

Temptation Sailing invites you to swim alongside or watch wild dolphins in their natural habitat.

Dolphins are one of the Earth’s most fascinating, curious and interactive species. The Advanced Eco Certified Wild Dolphin Tours are hosted by an amazing team of Marine Biologists who will educate and assist you throughout the tour. An incredible experience you will never forget!

Temptation is the first vessel in South Australia to be given a licence to swim with these magnificent mammals and has been operating successful dolphin swim and watch tours from Glenelg since 2002.

They offer two different swim experiences during their Wild Dolphin Swim, a Front Swim Experience and a Back Swim Experience. On a typical day, swimmers get the opportunity to try both swim experiences, however, some days swimmers may only get to try one. Their goal is to provide all swimmers an interaction with a dolphin underwater and their friendly staff will do their best to ensure the best quality experience possible for you and your group.

Wetsuits, masks and snorkels are provided. Please wear your swimwear underneath your clothing and dress appropriately for the weather!
