Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This day trip offers three transport options—boat, plane, or both—to suit all budgets.
When booking this Kangaroo Island tour, you have four choices for transportation to suit your interest and budget. You can travel both to and from the island by ferry, travel to and from the island by plane, or mix it up to enjoy both experiences with one way by ferry and the other by plane, or vice versa.

If you’re starting by ferry, your day trip begins with pickup in Adelaide by coach for the 90-minute drive with your guide across the Fleurieu Peninsula to Cape Jervis, where you’ll catch the ferry for a 45-minute cruise across Backstairs Passage to Penneshaw on Kangaroo Island. Upon arrival, board another coach for your tour of the island. If you’re starting by plane, land at the island’s Kingscote Airport, where you’ll be met by the coach.

Then begin your Kangaroo Island experience at Seal Bay Conservation Park to witness Australian sea lions lazing on the beach; take a coastal walk with a National Parks ranger for an up-close look at the colony. Continue to Vivonne Bay for a 2-course lunch at Vivonne Bay Bistro, where picture windows and a deck provide opportunities to watch for koalas and kangaroos in the surrounding bush.

After lunch, visit Hanson Bay Wildlife Sanctuary, where kangaroos, wallabies and echidnas roam free and koalas stay lazy in their eucalyptus groves, and then head to Flinders Chase National Park on the rugged southwest coast of the island to walk among the granite boulders known as the Remarkable Rocks. See the rock archway known as Admirals Arch, admire Cape du Couedic and watch long-nosed fur seals as they play and relax.

Throughout your tour, hear about the history of Kangaroo Island and learn interesting facts about the animals from your knowledgeable guide. When your time on the island is up, head back to the ferry landing or the airport, watching for more kangaroos along the way, for your ferry ride or flight back to the mainland.

It was worth paying the extra to fly back. Large groups rarely result in a good tour.

Long day, but well worth it.Sights were amazing, driver/tour guide was great, even lunch was far better than I expected especially as I have a gluten intolerance and a dairy allergy. Overall, an fabulous day. I would highly recommend taking a flight back though, as day was long and tiring and so the extra cost was well worth it!

Great place and passionate guides made this trip excellent. The day was very intense with a lot of diverse places visited if you have more time, two days may be a better option to really explore all the gems on the island, but this trip still managed to leave us satisfied that we seen a lot

This could have been a great tour exempt for the long travel between places in the island. The tour guide was very good and did his best to keep us entertained and to the schedule, we saw many animals sea lions, koalas, kangaroos from the distance even an echidna. many of the places were quite spectacular and provide opportunities for great pictures.
If you don't mind been on a Bus for a long day then you will enjoy the tour

I really enjoyed being able to see so much in one day. Hanson's and Admiral's Arch were high points for me. It was very hot in late February. Even though they had water available on the side of the coach, only tiny cups were provided. I felt dehydrated all day. If we had been given larger cups or bottles to refill, that could have been avoided. The guide, Mr Wilson, was fantastic and interesting to listen to.

An excellent day, we did the coach and ferry out and the flight back totally recommend doing that as a very long day otherwise.
Our tour guide was excellent everything timed to perfection. We saw Kangaroos, koalas, Sea lions and seals all in the wild and amazing scenery a day well worth doing.

Wonderful tour. We saw so many animals that were spectacular. The seals at Seal Bay were awesome. Just walking around everywhere. You can't get close to them to pet, but close enough to take wonderful pictures. Our tour guide, Jackqueline was great too. She told us so much information. Also saw the fur seals from New Zealand that were laying around on the rocks. Saw kangaroos from a distance. You won't be disappointed, so sign up to take this tour. Just so much fun.

This is a very tiring if interesting day out as it involves a lot of driving between places of interest and you get back to your hotel very late if you opt for the return ferry. You do get to see koalas and Australian sea lions close up and New Zealand fur seals and their young on the rocks, the lunch stop provides appetising food in a pleasant environment and the guide tries to point our other wildlife of interest, but do be prepared to spend a lot of time on the coach.

The tour was too long 06:15 to 22:40 approx..... OK I knew that before the start, but hoped that the experience would be more than worth it. The experience of standing on the beach watching the seals was great, but the whole tour was rush, rush, rush! The driver/ was constantly reminding us that we need to be back on the coach 30 minutes after stopping except the lunch stop where we were allowed 40 minutes! How can you possibly enjoy and appreciate sights and experiences if you are only allowed a ridiculously short time? Certainly didn't feel all that welcome on the trip, in fact I felt the driver felt we were an inconvenience!
