Nice boat, would be nice if they had cleaned the front windows though. Only one shop onboard with unhealthy food but the trip was only 50mins to Kangaroo Island.

The day tour to Kangaroo Island is very good, but the fee charged is well beyond what most people would regard as reasonable. It's what the economists call 'cost-plus pricing'. If the South Australian tourism industry is to prosper the state government really should pull these guys into line.

Car ferry prices are typical of an uncontrolled monopoly. Disgraceful and must negatively impact the economy of kangaroo island. Long time since I have been ripped off like this.

Very expensive considering transit time. In addition company is based overseas consequently international fee charged on credit card transactions. Difficult and unwieldy roll on-roll of procedures. Cannot recommend.

It was in January... but back in 2012, so I apologize. To catch the ferry ride, you have to travel roughly 1 hour from the CBD, but it was well worth it! The ferry ride only takes 30-45 mins, but you see quite a bit! When you get on the bus, you're then sent to many locations to enjoy and... More

Our driver/ guide, Greg, was teriffic......he is a local 'Islander' who has an obvious passion for his home! The tour was informative and we were... More

This would have to be the longest Day Tour ever! Pick up is around 6.30am and we only return about 10.40pm. However the tour is well planned and efficient. It is about a 2 Hr coach trip from the CBD to the ferry at Cape Jervois. There are several attractions on the island and tour includes lunch and stops at... More

Sealink Ferry to Kangaroo Island is fantastic. As a paraplegic the service was fantastic. The crew even drove our vehicle onto the ferry for us. They also moved me from the wharf to my front row seat on the deck using a motorised chair. I would highly recommend this service to any one with limited mobility.

An extremely good way to see the major areas around Kangaroo Island. We had Alvin as our tour guide and what luck. He was extremely knowledgeable and gave a great on board dialog as he drove us around the various sites. We stayed the night at the Aurora Ozone. A well kept hotel right on the front and offering a... More

Excellent, excellent experience from start to finish. Jackie the tour guide and bus driver made the experience over the TOP!! Tons of wildlife, great commentary and beautiful views. So worth it. Take this trip solo, couples or group; cannot recommend enough. Thank you so much for an experience of a lifetime. Fits nearly any Budget.
