One “must do” every visit to Victor Harbor is to go out on Granite island. A leisurely stroll across the causeway peering down into the channel of water that flows between the island and the coast hoping to spot some marine life of one form or another is mandatory.
I like to wander out onto the jetty on the island as there is a good chance that you could spot a dolphin or six, unfortunately this time we drew a blank however I did manage to get a few good picture of a pair of large Pacific Gulls that were hanging around the jetty. The Pacific Gull is, from a distance, similar to a seagull however closer up you see that it is substantially larger and has a different shaped beak which has red on the end.
The island can be walked around in about 45 minutes, longer if you want to soak in the ocean pounding the rocky shoreline and explore the eroded hiding holes you can find in and around the granite boulders around the island. Heres a gallery of pictures from out and around the island.
