This is another experience on Kangaroo Island which isn't anything spectacular for someone who has seen similar things in other places. There's some history or background on the pelicans, but I'm not so sure it's worth the time for a veteran traveler.

We enjoyed the hosts dry sense of humour. He has a great rapport with the pelicans. Lots of families and children enjoyed the feeding.

5pm in Kingscote people head to the wharf to hear a short talk by John and see him feed 30 or more pelicans (and lots of seagulls scrounging too!) An interesting and fun experience for the family

Very commercialisd, but quick way to see pelicans up close. It is a donation charge to see, but he won't let you out without making the donation.

I liked this show, even though it was freezing in June. Its a funny show with a small $5 fee, good for the whole family. Lots of photo ops and a lovely sunset.

My daughter enjoyed it very much while the my mother and I were quite put off by the presenter's rudeness and the way he handled the birds.

An eye opener for us, as it's the first time we come so close to the pelicans. It's an interesting sight, seeing them snatching food from each other when the pelican man fed them.
