We did the one day tour of Kangaroo Island leaving from Adelaide city in the morning returning in the evening.

Our driver was Greg, he was fantastic! Very knowledgable and an all-around great guy!

Kangaroo Island is a must! So much great wildlife and great scenery to see!

The only downsides were it was very rushed. I know we were doing everything in one day but we got very little time at every stop. The lunch especially was far too rushed! There wasn’t enough time to enjoy it. Nearly all our time was taken up with travelling, picking up extra people and dropping people off at the airport. Also our group was huge...over 50 people...you had to take pictures over the crowd of heads...not great!

All in all it was a great day, despite being very long. I can’t help feeling however, we paid an excessive amount to spend very little time doing things on the island...which was supposed to be the point of the tour!

Hi Simon

Thanks for taking the time to provide feedback from your one day tour. Kangaroo Island is quite large and we highly recommend a few days to get around to all the main attractions, whilst taking the time to relax. However, for travellers who only have one day, the tour covers a lot of ground and gets around to all the attractions the island is so famous for. We are sorry to hear you found the day to be rushed. A strict timeline needs to be followed to ensure you get around the island to see as much as possible.

Thanks for the great feedback about our Tour Guide Greg. We are very lucky to have such knowledgeable and friendly Guides. They really make the experience! We hope to see you back on Kangaroo Island again one day with a few extra days to relax into island time.

Kind regards,
The Team at SeaLink

We enjoyed our trip to KI.

We arrived at Cape Jervis early and got on the earlier ferry on stand by. Crew did a great job directing my car on to the tight ferry.

The trip was smooth on this nice Spring day. Trip took only 45 minutes and the ship plays videos about KI on the way over.

Ferry was on time and the unload process was also smooth.

Whether you are a passenger or are taking a car, this is a great way to go.

Note: There is almost nothing in or near Cape Jervis.

There is some basic food and coffee in terminal in Cape Jervis and on the ferry.

When we bought the tickets we considered doing ourselves but glad we spent the money. Long day fully packed but well worth every penny you pay particularly knowing you don’t have to drive home after. Pick up and drop off from hotel. Ferry ride not too long. Tour bus driver on the island was a passionate local and you wanted to fall in love with kangaroo island as much as them. The sights and places you drop into was good albeit short but had to be in order to fit everything in. The different foliage and scenery were different from one side of the island to the other. Lots of kangaroos koalas seals and the bus driver even stopped to let an echidna cross the road. Amazing!!

2 days packed full of tours throughout the Island. Kevin was an exceptional guide. Highlights for us were the Remarkable Rocks and seeing so much local fauna and flora both in sanctuaries (easier to get close-ups) and in the wild. Highly recommend this tour!
