Great experience! Definitely worth doing while In KI.
Got to see so many dolphins right next to the boat, swimming and playing along.
Crew were very friendly and entertaining. We could move on the boat, not too crowded.
The boat even got a little speedy on the way back and we got to experience some cool tricks😊
Kids loved it, definitely recommend this one!

The jet boat for our Ocean Safari was pretty impressive and skipper Clem quickly got us around the coast to the pod of about 20 local dolphins so we could really enjoy the experience. There were a number of young calves swimming with or suckling from mum which was pretty special. We only saw one seal and another sea lions but the highlight on our safari was certainly the time spent in the company of the dolphins. Just to give us one last thrill on the way back to the marina, Clem did a couple of doughnuts in the jet boat, yee ha!

Our Ocean Safari exceeded expectations. We saw lots of dolphins which were happily swimming around and near the boat. The captain / guide was really knowledgeable and shared plenty of local history and information about the local geography. We saw one seal and we’re lucky to see a pair of sea eagles nesting on the cliffs. For someone who suffers badly from travel sickness, I found the boat moved very calmly and I didn’t feel sick at all. There was also a roof on the boat which was welcome in the unseasonably cooler weather. Highly recommended this trip for families and all ages.

A superb morning out on the water with Elijah. The weather was sensational and Elijah really knew his stuff. He provided a relaxed commentary and took us to the best spots for viewing wildlife.
We saw 2 seperate pods of bottle nose dolphins who really put on a show, they were amazing to watch. We also saw the endangered sea eagles as well as a seal and many cormorants.
Highly recommended. If you’re on Kangaroo island just do it!

Elijah was awesome - he talked to lots of people and was engaging and thoughtful. When we told them about our interest in birds, they made a special trip to the west to give us an opportunity to see the white-bellied sea eagles.
The boat ride was smooth and the canopy meant we were protected from the cool winds and water spray. They were able to quickly locate the local dolphin pod and ensured that everyone had an opportunity to see them.

From the very start it was a wonderful experience, especially as I had made an error online which they easily corrected for me. From this very helpful booking assistance which included choosing the best day with regards to the weather to the very enthusiastic skipper Elijah, a young man who truly loves his job. The tour itself was amazing, there so many dolphins to see frolicking in the bay and many seals lazing on the rocks. We enjoyed it very much.

We had a fantastic trip with the safari. It was really great hearing an informative commentary that obviously knew what they were talking about. It was funny at the same time, which made it even better. We got to see a dolphin as well as fur seals. Plus the crew took us on an extra joy ride that the kids really enjoyed. Overall, a fantastic trip that we all really enjoyed, thanks.

Brilliant boat trip along the north-eastern side of Kangaroo island between Penneshaw and American Beach. A sizeable pod of dolphins greeted us along the way. As the boat was a 12 person RIB we could get up close and personal. Even got to see a seal basking along some rocks. Our host and boat driver Elijah was very knowledgeable in regards the sea and birdlife in the region and pointed out many of the coastal highlights along the way. He was also rather humorous! My wife and I can thoroughly recommend this trip to any tourists coming to see this wonderful island and its friendly residents.

Elijah was good, he know very well about the area. we went there for Queens birthday weekend, weather was good. He took us to dolphins spot first, couldn't find any. Then we went to the safari along the coast and saw birds and seals. Then again he took us to Dolphins spot again & boom , saw a pod of Dolphins (around 12) swimming and playing. He kept us there for good 20 min, every one loved it. Worth watch & book as a group if you can.
