Enjoy exploring the calm waters of the Dolphin Sanctuary while experiencing the latest water craft...The amazing Hobie Eclipse. Easy to use and stable peddled SUP board. See the Eclipse in action: click to see in action. It's wider than a paddleboard and its hull and handlebars are optimized for stability. Get ready for an extra-balanced ride. Ride solo or take a pair of Eclipses out. Join forces with a standard SUP-er or kayaker. Got a furry friend? Bring em' along for the ride.

We will have the SUP ready for you at the launch site, will help you set up and supply a map and advice on best spots to explore-you then create your own unique adventure!   

Hire fees are for up to one hours use of the equipment (including setup and briefing) and include the board,  PFD's  as well as a map with suggested sites to visit. 

You will need to bring: 

Clothing to suit the temperature of the day

a shady hat and sunscreen

shoes/sandals that may get wet

insect repellent

drink and snack 

a camera-we can supply a waterproof container

Find us at:   

Garden Island Boat Ramp and Reserve, Lot 204 Garden Island Road, Gillman. This is a public reserve; We are a mobile business and have no office at this location. Look for the Adventure Kayaking vehicles, lots of kayaks/SUP's and happy people! The Port Adelaide Visitor Centre, 66 Commercial Road, Port Adelaide will also supply a map if you call in on the way to kayaking; you can also check out what else is happening in The Port and make a day of it!

Relying on public transport? Unfortunately public transport doesn't travel to Garden Island. There are regular train services to Port Adelaide and we can provide a transfer from the  Port Adelaide train station much cheaper than a taxi! Please indicate this at the time of making your booking. Transfer would be 15 minutes prior to the time of your tour.

Please note

We hire our SUP boards to people who have adequate skills, knowledge and experience to safely complete the activity and are aware of the challenges of physical activity and exploring a natural area that is not supervised/managed.  We limit where you can explore for your own safety and our management. If you do not follow our guidelines and experience difficulty we may not be able to assist in your rescue and as such you are primarily responsible for your own safety and welfare including self rescue. In extreme cases we will contact Emergency Services and supply what information we have to aid in your rescue. 

Our equipment is of highest quality and in great condition and you need the knowledge to look after it and return it in the same condition as supplied, common sense really. Any abnormal damage, or loss of equipment will be charged to the hirer at replacement value (eg. SUPER SUP board is $3500AUS).

A security deposit of a credit card impression(or $200 cash) is required to hire the SUPER SUP. This will be destroyed (refunded) upon satisfactory return of equipment. If the equipment is damaged, in a dirty condition or lost an appropriate fee determined by the AKSA representative on the day will be charged to the credit card.
