Swim with Dolphins at Glenelg Beach, South Australia

When most people think of Adelaide they might think of Rundle Mall, a tram or churches but it’s a little less likely that that’d think of a pristine beach where you can swim with dolphins

Take the short tram ride from Rundle Mall (see what we did there?) to Glenelg and you’ll be greeted by all the delights of a historic seaside town before you’ve even alighted.  Glenelg was the site upon which the province of South Australia was claimed in 1836 after the first British settlers sailed to South Australia.

Glenelg has always had an affinity with entertainment and recreation seeing the development of Luna Park on the foreshore in 1930, only to then see it close in 1934 and be relocated to Sydney , where it still stands today.

Nowadays, Glenelg is known for its stunning beach and the dolphin inhabitants of Holdfast bay. Take a short boat tour into the bay and you can choose from swimming with or watching the dolphins at play.  There are a range of tour operators on offer with prices starting from just $68.00.

Stay around into the evening and see the magnificent sunset over the water, walk the esplanade or enjoy any one of the excellent dining options along the foreshore.
