      Quad bike adventure
      We had a great time; we experienced several types of terrain (just wish we could have gone a little faster:)) through the lovely landscape. It ended all too soon, we wish we had chosen the longer tour. 😊 We recommend this activity to all the young at heart. Our guide was very good, well suited to the role.

      Amazing, educational and very relaxing
      It was beautiful and educational. Jordan was able to tell us so much about the bird and plant life and teach us so much about the river.

      An excellent morning!
      The teaching was excellent from the time we arrived. We were up to speed very quickly and graduated through the levels quickly. Jeremy's knowledge of the Australian fauna was outstanding and we saw three koalas in the wild.

      Great Quad Adventure
      I was on a a quad adventure with my 6 year old daughter. The guide was very nice and the tracks were fun to drive. Maybe a bit to challenging for some kids.

      Amazing quad bike tour
      We had an incredible experience last Sunday in the quad bike adventure on Kangaroo Island. Thanks to Candice, our tour guide, her humour, wit, and professionalism, made the experience truly memorable. Candice's expertise and friendly demeanour definitely deserve a 5 out of 5 stars. Highly recommend this adventure for an unforgettable time on Kangaroo Island!🥰

      An incredible experience
      We went kayaking with Kangaroo Island Outdoor Action and loved the amazing scenery, the incredible wildlife and a relaxing and enjoyable day. The team were so flexible and helpful, particularly when a couple of our group members were unwell and unable to join us. I would thoroughly recommend!

      A delightful Harriet River kayak meander
      A perfect 9am tour with Jeremie. Our friendly and knowledgeable guide knew exactly where to take us to see koalas in the bushes near the water.Great to see swans, shags, herons and to be aware of so many bream in the river. A very safe, comfortable, relaxing tour with plenty of interesting conversation. Highly recommended.

      Great fun even though I had never riden quads before
      Great fun even though I was a beginner and worried about being able to do it. My partner was very experienced and we both had a great day. The guide knew his stuff and was really knowledgeable about all things KI. We even got to see a koala. It was a great experience and I would definitely recommend to everyone.

      Quad bike 115min tour
      Booking was easy, tour guide was fantastic, engaging and very attentive. We thought the 115mins was too long since our 13yo was not very enthusiastic about the activity but turns out it was a tad short, since she enjoyed it very much. The tracks were great for first timers and bikes were easy to control. Towards the end of the tour we just wanted to speed away 😁

      Totally fun adventure activities
      Had a fabulous time on the ATV quad bike tour just only wished it went for longer as our guide Candice was an absolute hoot and energy bunny. We returned the following day for the kayaking which was sublimely tranquil along the Harriet River and also encountered a supercute Koala clinging to a tree on the riverbank.

    I experienced this tour solo with Sam as my guide so I was lucky enough to get a VIP experience but either way it was an awesome, action-packed adventure! We gave the bikes a great run, getting up some heart-pumping speed and it was awesome taking corners through the bush tracks. Sam is very knowledgeable across all aspects of the tour so I would highly recommend this professional company. You'll feel safe and well looked after the whole time and won't forget the experience anytime soon! Cheers

    Great time on the quad bikes with Sophie.
    We were lucky enough to see a koala, wallaby and echidna. Highly recommend do the quad bike first then head over to Little Sahara Desert and see Lauren for tobboganing or the dashboards great fun.

    Sam was fantastic, especially with our 6 year old who was learning to ride a quad bike for the first time. He encouraged him, showed him the key features and ensured he understood before moving on. The result was a 6 year old who loved every minute of his adventure and went well outside his comfort zone. Sam was inclusive of all of us, 2 adults + 6 yr old + 4 yr old and made sure we not only enjoyed our adventure but that we also learnt about hos the island is recovering from the recent bushfires.

    Cannot recommend the Kangaroo Island Quad Bike Tour or Kangaroo Island Outdoor Action enough, made for an amazing and thoroughly enjoyable afternoon.

    This is seriously the most fun thing you can do while on Kangaroo Island. Dani took out our group of inexperienced quad bikers, including two children and she was the most patient and encouraging guide ever. 9yo decided riding a quad bike was a bit too much and that was fine, she became Dani’s “wildlife spotter” passenger and was made to feel very special. We did the two hour Sunset Safari and saw wallabies & an echidna up close. Dani was very informative about the local flora & fauna. I want to do this all over again it was so much fun.

    .....It was way better!!

    Both Charlie & Dani who were our lead rider & sweep rider went above & beyond.
    I was expecting a Quad bike ride on old outdated, worn out machinery around a paddock or two. What we experienced was simply brilliant. Stunning scenery, new 250cc Semi automatic quad bikes, and stops along the way to photograph koalas, Kangaroos and even a wild bee hive in a rock.

    Just when we thought it was over we rode up some pretty gnarly tricky tracks to the highest point of the adventure. We got off the bikes & climbed a sturdy scaffold to take in the 360 degree view of Vivonne Bay & surrounds right on sunset. Simply stunning.

    So if you are considering this as one of your adventures, my wife & I can highly recommend it. Charlie & Dani were very patient, explained everything in detail, as well as having a thorough understanding of the flora & fauna.

    One of the best tours we went on whilst on a week long tour of Kangaroo Island.

    Seriously, it’s worth making the trip to Vivonne Bay! The quad bike tour was the highlight for the kids, so much so, my 9 year old wanted to go again using his pocket money the very next day. Kayaking was also fun, although we didn’t spend too much time out there as we were pretty tired after the quad biking. We visited little Sahara a few days later to do our sand boarding and tobogganing and the kids had fun although it got very hot out there even though it was only 25 degrees. My partner went on a personalised fat bike tour while we went on the dunes and said it was more fun than the quad biking (although more of an exertion). Over the course of a few days, Lachie looked after us all - friendly, professional, informative, and flexible., even running a one-on-one fat bike tour at the last minute! Check out the local beach if you can as well, take your time exploring this beautiful part of the world and get to know some very knowledgeable local guides.

    We had our experience after the devastating bush fires to hit Kangaroo Island in January of 2020. The company are very much up and running and the diverse trails allowed for an amazing look at how the area was affected by the fires. Parts of the trail have been burnt by the fires and others are completely untouched. The stark contrast is a sight to see and the regeneration of the area is already beginning. The fires have in no way hindered the experience. If anything, they have added to it.

    We did the sunset quad biking and the sand boarding. Both incredible value for money with two hours of quad biking and unlimited sand boarding.

    The quad biking experience was amazing from the beginning as Sophie made us feel as ease as she trained us up on how to use the quad bikes safely and confidently. The trails were diverse and allowed for all ability levels to enjoy. We saw several koalas and kangaroos and were even lucky enough to see an echidna! Sophie and Dani had an amazing and in depth knowledge of the local flora and fauna. The bikes were easy to ride and trail well looked after.

    Our sand boarding experience was equally impressive, with friendly staff and a simple process that allows you to get the most out of your time on the dunes.

    Thank you for a great day, we loved it!!

    The forecast was rain and wind but we were told that would just make it more fun which it sure did. We went for the 3 hours tour which meant we got to see so much and experience so many varied terrains and tracks. All wet weather gear supplies including goggles and gloves. A huge shout out to Lachie! An exceptional guide and made the whole trip great. Make this a must when visiting KI. Definitely one of KI’s bucket list items.

    What can we say about Sam this morning!! He was soooo FANTASTIC!!! We have twin 12 year old girls who are anxious and very cautious. Sam was amazing with them...he was calm, reassuring and very kind. Our girls thrived under Sams clear and concise instructions. We all had an absolute ball. Sam taught us all about the area that we were traveling through as well as continuously encouraging our 2 girls with positive reinforcement. Even when Sam needed to remind us to stay a safe distance when traveling he did so in a respectful considerate way..something that our girls responded very well to. We all felt safe with Sam and we will be highly recommending him, as well as Outdoor Adventures Kangaroo Island to all of our friends and family. Thank you so much for an amazing experience today.

    Had a fantastic day with the family! Standout was the quad bike tour with our guide Sam. Safety conscious and absolutely amazing with the boys, 6 and 8. So patient, calm and clear with the instructions about how to handle the bikes, not just in the “learning stage” at the beginning but the entire tour. Clearly had a lot of passion and knowledge about KI, making for an amazing tour. Would absolutely recommend the extra 1/2 hour (we had the 2 hour tour), particularly with any novice riders. Tobogganing was also a lot of fun!
