Full description

Take the opportunity to swim with wild dolphins or among the seals, and snorkel some of Kangaroo Island's stunning coastline. It's an amazing wildlife encounter, with wetsuits, masks, snorkel, and fins provided. Arrive at The Visitor Information Centre in Penneshaw (Howard drive) where you will be fitted into a wetsuit, mask, snorkel, and flippers and provided with a safety brief. Then, jump on board a 12-seater or 26-seater vessel in search of the marine life that inhabits the incredible coastline. Spot the cheeky seals lounging on the rocks and playing in the water and dive in! These curious seals can be quite interactive and playful and provide a fun snorkeling experience.

Our guide Elijah was great explaining everything well. Fantastic experience with a seal claiming my daughter and I by repeatedly swimming around and beneath us and looking us in the eyes. Absolutely surreal ! Many seals watching us from the rocks and 1 sea lion lazing there too. Our boat captured the attention of a pod of dolphins that circled, jumped and dived under at close range.

While the skipper and his crewman were very obliging, they really didn't explain very well how the swimming being towed behind the boat whilst holding a rope was going to work. It was very challenging using mask and goggles that were fogging up to enjoy the experience. Overall we felt like we had been through a ship wreck when we finally made it back to shore wet and cold.

Jason and Elijah were excellent tour guides! Kept us entertained the whole time while telling us interesting stories and facts about beautiful KI, the seals and dolphins. We were able to get so close to the seals and the dolphins, definitely an experience we will be doing again! 100% worth it
