Adelaide Granite Island Discovery Package - Island In-Sea Aquarium Swim & Seafood Tasting Platter

 

Victor Harbor, South Australia

South Australia enjoys some of the cleanest and most pristine oceans in the world, hosting a greater diversity of marine life than the Great Barrier Reef. South Australia's ocean waters are home to 7500 different species of plants and animals - and over 80% of them are found nowhere else in the world.

Victor Harbor is just under 1.5 hours scenic drive south of Adelaide and is the perfect day's trip from the city. Equally, a restful stopover on the Melbourne to Adelaide self-drive journey.

Imagine the adrenalin rush … a Southern Bluefin Tuna whipping past you like a freight train in the pristine waters of Victor Harbor, gently plucking a pilchard from your fingers on its way through. Or the tranquillity that comes from swimming lazily with hundreds of sea creatures or watching them shimmy past the windows of an underwater observatory.

Imagine no longer - join this tour for the experience of a lifetime at the in-sea aquarium at Victor Harbor, just one hour's drive south of Adelaide on the spectacular Fleurieu Peninsula.

Get in the water and get up close and personal with magnificent Southern Bluefin Tuna - one of the fastest fish in the sea! Or settle in to the undersea observatory and enjoy the spectacle of Australia's marine life - all in the safety of a purpose built enclosure in the lee of uninhabited Granite Island.

 

The Tour

This is a world class marine ecotourism company based in a marine park in the waters of Encounter Bay in South Australia. Located on Granite Island, just off Victor Harbor, on the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula. Granite Island is connected to the mainland by a historic jetty.

Granite Island is a 15-minute walk from Victor Harbor's esplanade, or take a walk back in time and catch the century old horse drawn tram.

Join the of team of marine scientists and ocean lovers as you begin the journey out to the famous in sea aquarium via the luxury catamaran. Guests are transferred on to the floating platform and fitted with warm wetsuits, gloves, booties and masks. Enjoy the 2 hours experience of swimming, feeding & interacting with the magnificent Southern Bluefin Tuna, the Ferraris of the Ocean.

Enter the inner aquarium and experience a variety of marine species indigenous to the marine park including the gorgeous Port Jackson Sharks who love a cuddle and are referred to as the puppy dogs of the sea! "Little people" and "Bigger people" can enjoy getting up close and personal with creatures in the touch tanks. For those who prefer to stay dry, venture into the underwater observatory and view life beneath the waves.

This is the ultimate inclusive experience for the entire family, young and old. The adventure seeker, the adrenaline junkie, and those passionate to learn about the amazing oceans and the creatures that inhabit it from the resident marine scientists and ocean lovers here.

Be thrilled by the excitement of swimming with one of the fastest fish in the seas or be enchanted by the shimmery passing of schools of fish. This experience provides a safe but exhilarating marine environment for those who would never have a chance to experience this fascinating and diverse world, and to hopefully inspire the next generation to appreciate and respect her ecosystems.
