Swim with wild dolphins in South Australia

dolphinsDolphins are one of the Earth’s most fascinating and curious creatures. We offer you this once in a lifetime encounter in which you will be touched forever. Temptation is the first vessel in South Australia to be given a licence to swim with and study these magnificent mammals. This is possibly the only cruise of its type, where we don’t go to the dolphins, they come to us – something that has taken many cruises to achieve.


Because this gulf is home to over a thousand common and bottlenose dolphins, we are able to offer a money-back guarantee. If you do not get into the water to swim with the dolphins for whatever reason, we will refund the difference between the watch and the swim.

The Boat

temptation‘Temptation’ is a 58ft x 32 ft aluminium high-performance sailing catamaran, which was built by the owner/operator in South Australia. Temptation is not designed as a commercial vessel but a passenger charter vessel. She is twice as wide as most vessels her size, this means greater stability and is designed to cut through the water, rather than bouncing over them, all this adds up to a smoother cruise. She has only small engines (2 x 37.5hp) and uses her sails on most cruises, this limits the diesel fumes. Temptation also uses Biodiesel fuel, limiting one of the main reasons for sea-sickness – Diesel fumes. She is survey registered to hold 50-day passengers or sleep 19 overnight and can travel anywhere in the world, making her an extremely stable vessel in SA waters. Berthed at Adelaide’s favourite beach resort, Glenelg, where a wide range of cafes and restaurants are just steps from the boarding berth. A perfect site for special occasions and leaving for magical experiences with one of nature’s most intelligent creatures, the dolphin. Operating short cruises from the new Holdfast Shores Marina, Glenelg, sailing has never been this accessible in South Australia.
