What to expect
Your day trip begins with pickup in Adelaide by coach for the drive with your guide across the Fleurieu Peninsula to Cape Jervis, where you catch the ferry for a cruise across Backstairs Passage to Penneshaw on Kangaroo Island. Upon arrival, board another coach for your tour of the island. Then begin your Kangaroo Island experience at Seal Bay Conservation Park to witness Australian sea lions lazing on the beach; take a coastal walk with a National Parks ranger for an up-close look at the colony. Continue to Vivonne Bay for a 2-course lunch at Vivonne Bay Bistro, where picture windows and a deck provide opportunities to watch for koalas and kangaroos in the surrounding bush. After lunch, visit Flinders Chase National Park on the rugged southwest coast of the island to walk among the granite boulders known as the Remarkable Rocks. See the rock archway known as Admirals Arch, admire Cape du Couedic and watch long-nosed fur seals as they play and relax. Throughout your tour, hear about the history of Kangaroo Island and learn interesting facts about the animals from your knowledgeable guide. When your time on the island is up, head back to the ferry landing, watching for more kangaroos along the way, for your ferry ride back to the mainland.

Great 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.

Amazing day trip with fantastic tour guide
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!

Amazing guided tour
Oct. 2020
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.

Rushed but still excellent
Mar. 2020
To be honest, you really need two days to appreciate the beauty of kangaroo island. However, for this like us, who don’t have the luxury of time, one day was all we had. It was rushed. For some people that’s fine, but we like to take our time. So to be honest we should have just scheduled an extra day in for it.

Hi Carla Thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback on our one day tour. We're so glad to made it to Kangaroo Island but yes you are correct. Kangaroo Island is best enjoyed at a relaxed pace and we recommend three days to a week to make your way around. We hope you enjoyed your sneak peak of the island and can find the time to visit again for a little longer. Best regards, The Adelaide Sightseeing Team

Thanks for your feedback on our one day Kangaroo Island Tour Evelyn. The one day tour is great and packs so much in, however, it's great if you have time for a two day tour, or even to stay for a few more days. The island is spread out over such a great distance! We're so glad to hear you enjoyed your day and we hope to welcome you back for another tour one day. Best regards, The Adelaide Sightseeing Team

Great day out from Adelaide, but sadly since we went has been affected by the fires
Nov. 2019
we pre-booked with Viator, and took the morning flight to the island, returning by the ferry in the evening. Its a long day, getting picked up from our hotel at 07.40, and finally getting back around 22.00. The island was fantastic - great coastline, lots to see and much wildlife, especially the sealions at Seal Bay. The tour around the island was by coach, with about 20-30 people on the tour. Due to the numbers there is no flexibility to stop other than the designated places on the tour. Places worth seeing include the Eucalyptus oil store, the Remarkable Rocks, Admiral's Arch, the Brothers islands and the general scenery. We also saw koalas at Hansons Bay wildlife centre. The ferry left just before sunset, and took anout 90minutes, and then a coach takes you back to the hotel; the time on the coach dependent on how many different hotels the driver has to stop at to let people off

Exceptional Day Visit to Kangaroo Island
Dec. 2019
I really enjoyed the day visit to Kangaroo Island. I took the bus from Adelaide, then the ferry and another tour bus when we arrived at Penneshaw. Sure, it was a bit rushed and you do spend a lot of the time travelling but that's to be expected if you're not staying on the Island. Our driver and guide was Hamish and he was a true fount of knowledge on the nature, origins and history of Kangaroo Island. The scenery and views at Remarkable Rocks and Admiral's Arch were spectacular; and we were very fortunate to have the opportunity to see sea lions, seals, wallabies and koalas in their natural habitat (although some are not native to the island). So yes, it is a long day but it's a very worthwhile one and perfectly designed for a single day visit.

Great experience going to kangaroo lsland and across the ferry, good sightseeing and places to see, but the schedule is a little tight but very interesting and worth doing, gifts and merchandise are dearer, but if you want this that's fine,all in all a good day.

Exhausting Day, but Worth It
Dec. 2019
Okay, first of all, if you go to Kangaroo Island, plan on staying at least one night. I couldn't because of timing, and I still had fun, but it was exhausting and there's a lot to see. The bus driver from Adelaide was great with lots of info, which kept the two hour trip down manageable. The crossing was fine and very professional. The tour on KI with Gary was awesome, but again, there's so much to see, you spend a lot of time driving. Then, at 7, you get back on the boat, I was at the hotel by 10:30. That's 6:30 am to 10:30 pm! That's a long day. Still it was worth it because I had no other choice, but if you can plan ahead, I'd try to stay there longer.
