We had three days on Kangaroo Island as part of our Australia holiday and the Sealink crossing was booked for us in advance. After an early coach pick up in Adelaide we were dropped at the ferry terminal for a morning crossing. Staff were efficient, there were plenty of seats and everything ran on time. The small cafeteria soon attracted... More

The reliability of travel and excellence in customer service from booking - on or off line - to arrival at terminal, boarding with or without vehicle and cafe refreshments is unrivalled in more than 16 years of travelling to or from the Island.

We joined the one day Kangaroo Island Experience tour at Cape Jervis for the ferry ride to Penneshaw on Kangaroo Island. It is possible to be picked up by coach from Adelaide if you wish. From Penneshaw our coach driver and tour guide Jacqueline provided us with a tour of a lifetime with an excellent commentary. The sites visited included... More

We were on a great ocean trip from Sydney to Adelaide so we had a 3 night stop on the island, the ferry was pretty straightforward as they go all very efficient with no issues both ways and good seats to boot. The island itself by its name you'd expect to see loads of animals!! Well we did see quite... More

This one-day tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Australia. We chose the option of taking a flight to the island (and returned at the conclusion of the tour to the mainland via ferry, and were shuttled back to Adelaide by bus). It is a very long day, even with taking the plane in the morning, but... More

We sailed from Cape Jervis, arriving early is beneficial as there are large queues and you have to leave your vehicle to check in. You must know your vehicle make and registration (passengers not allowed to drive on to the ferry with the driver and must walk on separately). Various driving routes around the island available, would seriously recommend driving... More

We had an amazing time during our 2 day trip on Kangaroo Island. Seal Bay and Handson Bay wildlife sanctuary were really great. We saw a lot of seals and koalas nearby. We also went to Flinders chase national park, the remarcable rocks were breathtaking. Sandboarding in Little Sahara was real fun. What really made our trip great was our... More

For a 45 minute ferry ride this is ridiculously overpriced ! Personally I would have opted out but my travel buddy was super keen to visit Kangaroo Island (which I think is over rated) - I was shocked when I phoned to book & got prices - this must be the most expensive Ferry trip in the world (it was...

The boat was perfectly fine, but it cost us $600 for four adults and a car to go on a 45 minute ferry journey. We almost decided not to go to Kangaroo Island because of this huge cost. It's a real shame that one company can put people off the island like this. This is a real example of a... More
