What people are saying about Kangaroo Island

Brilliant Dolphin cruise with a sensational skipper, Illija! He was great with his enthusiastic and informative commentary, and took us straight to a pod of 30 Bottle Nosed Dolphins with babies which came up right to the boat! Then he took us to watch some NZ Fur Seals sun baking and also found 2 nests with Wedge Tailed Eagles in them. The weather was superb and the cruise even better!

Our guide Elijah was great explaining everything well. Fantastic experience with a seal claiming my daughter and I by repeatedly swimming around and beneath us and looking us in the eyes. Absolutely surreal ! Many seals watching us from the rocks and 1 sea lion lazing there too. Our boat captured the attention of a pod of dolphins that circled, jumped and dived under at close range.

It was thrilling! Rode a quad bike for the very first time and over different terrain. Thank you Lee and Sanne for a wonderful experience and very informative tour of the island's native plants/vegetation and animals.

Nice trip along the island with dolphins, rare birds, seals and good explanations from the friendly and competent crew.

Thank you Lee and Sanne. Wonderful first time kayaking experience.
