Went on the swim with the dolphins tour with host Andrew . As with any water based activity the weather dictates what can be achieved. Andrew's enthusiasm , passion and flexibility resulted, for me, in some one off personal experiences when opportunities to swim with dolphins in the wild occurred. Came away with lifetime memories.

What an amazing way to spend a Sunday morning! Awesome boat and a great skipper (Andrew) Very imformative, funny anedotes and truly amazing wild dolphins swimming around the boat. My daughter (13) jumped in and swam freely while my husband & I were just in awe of the experience. Thank you for the wonderful experience. ;)

This was an amazing experience as the dolphins were completely in their natural environment. Would thoroughly recommend the experience but be sure to know how to use snorkelling equipment as this makes the under water experience even more incredible.

Thank you to KI Marine Adventures for an excellent time! 2 pods of dolphins, with up to 60 dolphins swimming around the boat in crystal-clear shallow water! It was a 'wow' moment!! Unsurpassed dolphin experience anywhere! Can't wait to return to swim with them! Just to top it off, we viewed Osprey and watched a small colony of fur seals... More

We went on the short tour with our four children. It's an experience that we will all treasure. Saw dozens of dolphins leaping, slapping the water with their tails, circling the boat and bobbing out of the water. We wished we could have done the full dolphin experience, but sometimes children can limit your options. This tour was certainly the... More

This was a really cool trip on a jet boat (max. speed up to 25 knots) out on the bay to see marine wildlife such as dolphins, seals, ospreys, sea eagles etc. The guide was excellent, he knows the bay as the back of his hands and shared a lot of information not only about the wildlife but also about...

This was so fun! Our two kids (ages 5 and 8) and my husband and I all swam with two separate pods of wild dolphins - over 30 all together. My husband also swam with a colony of fur seals. This is an incredible experience that I can't recommend highly enough. Wonderful staff, really helpful and smart. Lots of knowledge... More

Absolutely amazing!!!! Swimming with dolphins and seals!. Our hosts were most welcoming, and the crew knew a lot about the marine life. The schedule is very flexible and everyone was at ease. The best thing I have done since I arrived in Australia 5 months ago!!

We spent an amazing morning with David on his very comfortable boat last week, discovering the North Coast of Kangaroo Island by sea. Very friendly welcome, animals more than we had dreamed of (pelicans, cormorans, eagles, seals.....), together with the swim with a "family" of dolphins!! David really took his time to find them, and gave us more tonfullybenjoybthe experience(and... More
