We did the single day guided tour which ended up being one of the highlights of our honeymoon. We were very lucky to have had a warm, sunny day which made the trip even more memorable.
We were staying in Adelaide city, so it was an early (6:30am) start. We were picked up in the city by a large coach and driven down to Cape Jervis which was air-conditioned and the seats were comfortable. The trip from the city to Cape Jervis is roughly 2hrs, once we arrived we were ushered into the SeaLink Ferry Terminal and the staff there were helpful providing our tickets and some directions on where to find our guide once we arrived at Penneshaw. The ferry trip over to Kangaroo Island takes approx 50min.
Back on dry land at Penneshaw, we were greeted by our guide Kate and ushered into a smaller tour bus with about 18 others. The island is quite large, so there is a fair amount of driving to be done to get to each location, but Kate was very knowledgeable and provided the group with some incredible facts, stories and history of Kangaroo Island while we were on the road. Kate was very easy to get along with and really made the trip enjoyable.
Our first stop was Seal Bay, we were taken by Park Rangers down a hill onto a viewing platform and then down some stairs onto the sand to see sea lions in their natural habitat. Again we were quite lucky with the weather as there were a lot of seals out on the beach sunning themselves which was a great photo opportunity. The Rangers provided some great information about the seals and their conservation efforts.
Our next stop was the Parndana Hotel for lunch, we had the chicken schnitzel which was delicious!
Next was the Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park where we were able to see a large range of Australian animals as well as hand feed KI Kangaroos, a species endemic to the island.
Our next stop was Admiral's Arch within the Flinders Chase National park, this was a short walk down a boardwalk to an amazing rock arch formation with plenty of seals playing in the water and sunning themselves on the rocky surfaces below. Fantastic photo opportunities with great views here.
Our final stop was Remarkable Rocks, still within the national park. Again another incredible rock formation on the cliffs above the water. Although quite windy at the time, the weather was fantastic and we were able to get some incredible photos at this location.

The Kangaroo Island in a day tour from Adelaide was amazing. The drive through the countryside from Adelaide to the ferry port was beautiful and we saw dolphins and a whale on the ferry trip. Dave gave us a warm welcome on the island and was an amazing tour guide throughout the day, keeping us entertained with information and great vibes on the coach. We hit all the highlights of Kangaroo Island with the wildlife park being a particular highlight feeding kangaroos and being able to stroke the koalas. Very nice 2 course lunch and smooth running throughout the entire itinerary from start to finish. My best day in South Australia by far!

We had a pleasant tour of the island with the very nice commentary from our tour guide cum bus driver. The bus ride was comfortable and there was enough time to enjoy the sights and scenery of Kangaroo Island. Lunch was good and served quickly by friendly staff. The ferry ride to and from the island was pleasant but I recommend to take sea sick medication if you suffer from motion sickness. It was a long day which started from hotel pickup at 6:10 am and we got back to our hotel at 10pm. Tiring but worth it.

We had an absolutely brilliant tour of Kangaroo Island. As we only had a few days in Adelaide we chose the one day tour to really just get a taste of the island and get an idea of what's there, with a view to maybe coming back in the future for a longer trip. From the minute we were picked up in Adelaide CBD we were well looked after by the Sealink staff. However, our driver and tour guide for the day - Dani - was just incredible. She was remarkably knowledgeable about the island, was friendly and professional, and took amazing care of us all as we went around the various activities. They really pack in the sight seeing on the day trip and I think it's great value for money, there is plenty to see and the tour on the bus makes it really interesting and engaging. I would highly recommend! And we'll definitely be back to Kangaroo Island for a longer stay!

The day is very full and we were returned to the ferry port at 6.40pm with a 7.30pm sailing time with nothing open to buy dinner. The ferry terminal cafe was closed. There was no hot food available on the boat. The ferry trip took 40 mins then a 2 hour bus trip back to Adelaide meant no dinner at all. Totally disappointing way to end the day .

Kangaroo Island is an amazing place to visit. It is diverse and everything about it - the animals & scenery, I loved it all. The only places of interest to me that we didn't visit was the Honey Farm and the Eucalyptus Distillery. If I had chose the 2 day tour that would have been included.

Hamish our Tour Guide & Driver was excellent, he is so knowledgeable about the Island and very passionate in preserving it's native and natural wonders. Kangaroo Island was the highlight of my 2 week tour.

Very seamless day with the door to door coach service.

Our first driver was friendly but mostly silent on the long drive down to Cape Jervis which was disappointing as I wanted to learn about SA and Adelaide. He only mentioned the name of things if someone specifically asked. Then kind of just dropped us at the ferry and didn’t really explain how to get our tickets.

Our next driver at KI was amazing. Gary was friendly, funny, warm, and knowledgeable. We sometimes had a hard time hearing him from the back of the bus but we got most of it. Would’ve liked to stop at the visitor centre but I gathered it was still being rebuilt. The seals were so cute and the kangaroos were so friendly and had their paws resting on my hands whilst they ate out of it like my puppy. Was so sweet. Have also never seen koalas this close. Usually at zoos they are higher up but this enclosure was very good for up close viewing.

Lunch was okay. Delicious chicken with salad and a cheesecake. Would’ve been nice to have a quick dinner but understand there is no time. The ferry cafe was stocked well enough.

Being in Adelaide, we decided to jump on a tour to get onto KI. An amazing place with many aspects to look at. The pickup was all good and near out CBD accommodation. Normally I would have hired a car and dome this myself (with friends). The bus trip was more relaxing, the driver was very knowledgeable and threw in some good old dry humour along the way! In fact, there was heaps more, so really a couple of days may be even better! Do your self a favour and get over to KI!

What a great reintroduction to Kangaroo Island. I had been there more than twenty years ago but wanted to see it after the fires. The island is ready for tourists and actually looking at the regeneration is a highlight. Of course the natural beauty of the coast line and the fauna is a major aspect and you be intrigued as to how the fires actually had a positive impact. The tour is long at 16 hours but really you don't realise it until the coach trip in the large coach that you realise it but you just drop off to sleep. All parts of the tour is highly professional. The guide, Hamish, was superb and you can tell he likes his job and Kangaroo Island. Kangaroo Island is a must visit even if it is for one day

This was a magnificent tour, great to see so much of the island in a day. But it is a really really long day (around 16hrs) with a lot of time spent on the bus. It the sites were worth it if you’re time poor and cannot spend more than a day visiting. Our tour guide was lovely and very funny, keep the mood high even when tiredness was setting in.
