You’ll be in good hands with a team of experienced professionals who prioritise your safety while providing a unique and unforgettable experience.



If you’re looking for a serene and intimate sailing experience along SA’s  picturesque coastline, Temptation Sailing is an excellent choice. This 58-foot sailing catamaran is located only 15 minutes away from Adelaide’s bustling CBD, yet it offers a tranquil escape from the city’s hustle and bustle.

Temptation Sailing offers various sailing tours, including Twilight Cruises and Afternoon Tea Cruises, that allow you to relax and take in the stunning scenery. The spacious vessel can accommodate up to 50 passengers and features a licensed bar, a furnished cabin, and a 360-degree front viewing deck, making it perfect for a comfortable and leisurely sail.

One of the highlights of Temptation Sailing is its Wild Dolphin Swim/Watch Tours.

During the tour, you’ll have the opportunity to swim with or watch the dolphins in their natural habitat, creating an unforgettable and magical experience.

Whether you’re an experienced sailor or a novice looking for a unique adventure, step aboard and let the sea breeze and tranquil scenery take you on a journey you’ll never forget.
