What people are saying about Kangaroo Island

This is a great tour, the guides were so friendly and knowledgeable and the scenery was beautiful. It was incredible to get in the water with the seals and see them in their own environment and while we couldn’t get in with the dolphins, the guides made sure we got to see them up close. I’d highly recommend this to anyone!

Had a great time. No guarantees of seeing seals or dolphins but due to persistence of our guides we managed to swim with the seals on the second attempt and saw dolphins as we returned to the dock. Were willing to get us back a little late just to achieve this, well done guys!! Loved it!

We were lucky enough to swim with a couple of seals. Got up close to them as they play around in the water. Unfortunately didn't get to see any dolphins but getting to swim with the seals made up for it.

Great experience! We were expecting to swim with dolphins and do some snorkelling. But we were lucky enough to actually swimm with a couple of seals...an amazing experience!!!!

Lovely informative staff. We were lucky enough to have perfect weather and see two pods of dolphins and swim with two different seals. Fantastic day.
