      Expensive
      Trip was fine and boarding with pets was easy. We were on a self drive visit to the Island. Only downside is the extreme expense of such a short ferry ride.

      It is so good to be able to get to and from Kangaroo Island so easily
      The shorter sea crossing is so much easier, the crew are very efficient and tuck the vehicles on safely, the captain knows how to pick a route to maximise passenger comfort and the price is very reasonable.

      A very good service
      This service is excellent. We took our car both ways to and from Kangaroo Island. The service from booking to travel was seamless and efficient. Booking on line is easy, on arrival at Port it's clear what you have to do, loading the car great, check in staff friendly and helpful and the boat is comfortable. A very good service which is recommended.

      A terrible experience on one of the most expensive Car Ferry trips in the world.
      Appalling customer relations from the disgusting manner commencing in which way the car parking operators talk to drivers to the cafe staff. It is akin to a Faulty Towers episode ie ‘this ferry would be a lot easier to operate if there weren’t any cars or passengers!’ . Japanese visitors were co fused, frustrated and talked down to - racism at its worst. I strongly suggest those staff dealing with passengers be much better trained. In summary, a terrible way to commence a holiday on K.I. Never again thanks.

      AMAZING Kangaroo Island Day Trip
      It was a seamless trip to Kangaroo Island that was booked through Sealink. The lady who made changes to the pick up, by advising of the parkade closest to the bus depot, was pleasant, helpful and efficient. The air conditioned bus departed punctually and the bus driver courteously explained what we were to expect on the trip to Cape Jervis. We boarded the ferry and departed on time for Kangaroo Island. The cafe on board sells coffee and light meals. It is good to take snacks. The ferry trip was very smooth. The Sealink bus left for Seal Bay Conservation Park. We were able to see the seals quite close up. The guide was very knowledgeable and outlined the dangers to us and the seals if their environment was not respected. We stopped for lunch that was included in the booking. The bistro was functional and the staff pleasant. The meal of a warm chicken salad and cheesecake was ample and tasty. Tea and coffee was provided and cold drinks can be purchased. We were then taken to Remarkable Rocks which are truly well-named. It is one of the most beautiful places in the world. There was plenty of time to take photographs. Admirals Arch was the next stop and has accessible boardwalks to the bottom. The last place to visit was the Wildlife Conservation Park. We saw koalas, penguins, chickens, echidna, parrots and kangaroos. The most endearing were the kangaroos. They could be fed and the kangaroos eating from your hands is unforgettable. The ferry trip back saw dolphins chasing the ferry. The bus driver, Will, had a wealth of knowledge on the local flora and fauna and amiably answered every question asked. He stopped to give everyone photo opportunities at magnificent parts of the Island. The Sealink day trip is really well organised. I would recommend the trip as we got to see so many sights in a day which would be exhausting if done on your own. I uploaded a short video of my trip on my YouTube channel LaraLise life & crafts

      Long day on a coach to visit Kangaroo Island
      Very long day. Pick up 6.30am, return 10.30pm. In that time spent 11 hours on the coach, 2 hours on the ferry, and only 3 hours at the 4 attractions, plus lunch. Far too much travel, only 30 minutes allowed at each attraction until we spent another 2 hours driving to the next one. Not a worthwhile use of my holiday time. Far too expensive to look at seals, rocks and kangaroos for 2 hours

      Smooth sailing all the way on the Ferry.
      Easy computer booking process, then easy boarding and sailing on the days of our visit. Only the driver is allowed to take the car on the boat, anyone else in the car needs to board via the gangway. Everything ran smoothly, a great way to come to fabulous KI.

      Full day event
      This was an excellent tour but be prepared for the full 17 hours. With so much to do this is not to be missed. Though its an early start and late finish its the traveling that is long rather than the actual events.

      Great service on this notoriously rough crossing
      The Ferry crossing to Kangaroo Island is extremely efficient and well managed by Sealink. The staff are very friendly and there are plenty of amenities at both sides of the crossing . Toilets cafe good coffee etc . Also lots of brochures I fully recommend getting the KI one with map if you don’t already have one . We were not on a guided tour we drive our own hire car . Note only some hire companies will let you take your vehicle to KI we used East Coast cars who were great . The crossing itself is notoriously rough even in summer, it’s all to do with prevailing winds and currents .the Sealink s service is the only one you can take to KI but despite the monopoly they are efficient very clean boats. But don’t expect a calm sea !!

      Thank you Scott, our fun bus driver
      The bus tour was the highlight. The itinerary covered a wide variety of spectacular sights and experiences, lunch was an unexpected delight with tasty fresh chicken salad and cheesecake dessert, and the good humour, extensive knowledge and entertaining banter of Scott, the bus driver, made the day for me. It was great to surrender the car and allow SeaLink to provide a fabulous day out. The ferry crossing was a bit rough but the staff took care of us and advised us how to ensure minimum seasickness so the uneventful experience of swells was a fun part of a great and memorable day.

      Too much time on the bus, not enough time at each stop.
      This was a 16 hour day, which sounds like good value, but we spent 10 or 11 hours on the bus. Whilst the scenery is lovely, there is virtually no wildlife to see along the way. We were staying in Glenelg, so had to get up at 5am to get a taxi into Adelaide centre to get on the bus. The ferry crossing was quite rough and the ferry was late arriving onto the island. We then headed to Seal Bay only to find that, because we were late, we were not able to go down onto the beach because they had other groups booked. We did walk along the boardwalk to look across at the sea lions, but no close encounters. They were all a long way off. Very disappointing. There was absolutely no leeway, so if sea lions are your passion, you may be disappointed. Lunch was included and was very nice, but no choice in what we had. The afternoon was filled with lots of driving and short stops at each destination. We were only given 30 minutes to see the fur seals at Admirals Arch, another 30 minutes at Remarkable Rocks and a very brief photo opportunity to see the views across the bay on the way back. We did have 50 minutes at the wildlife park where the guide rushed us through feeding the kangaroos, seeing the koalas and pelicans and talking very fast about the other animals they have there. Some people went off to hold a koala, but they did not get to see the kangaroos because there was not time to do both. All in all, each stop was very good, just not enough time. The Island is big and spread out, so it is difficult to see and do everything in one day and will always involve lots of driving. In hindsight I wish we had spent a couple of days on the island and not tried to squeeze everything into one day. After getting off the ferry on the way home, the bus driver very kindly did a short detour to drop us in Glenelg, which saved us a half hour taxi ride back from Adelaide centre. We got back to our hotel just after 10 pm.

      High praise for Sealink staff
      Sealink is an understanding company. We are a couple of grey nomads and I completely stuffed up the booking by not telling them that I was pulling a trailer. Even though there ferries were pretty booked up, they did manage to find a place for our rig. This involved waiting for one or two ferries to come and go, but they very kindly reversed the rig onto the ferry for us. On the return journey, I had a grey moment and completely forgot that we were supposed to be at the ferry at 10:30 and I turned up at 12. They could have rescinded my fair, but instead they rescheduled us for the first ferry the following morning. I have nothing but praise for the excellent service demonstrated by Sealink.

    Highly recommend this activity. All the planning has been done for you, taking you to the major tourist destinations. The tour guide (Adam) was brilliant, he was very knowledgeable and made sure we kept on time. The lunch was absolutely delicious. The fact that you can sit back and enjoy the views without worrying about where you are driving is a BIG plus. Please ensure you take this tour when you visit KI.

    The coach driver was a last minute replacement. His driving skills were excellent and I certainly always felt safe.

    This tour would greatly benefit from a recorded travelogue, giving information and background to the wonderful sights and plants and animals on KI.

    The International tourists sitting near me were wanting to know the impact of the 2019 bushfires and information on how the community worked together etc.

    Recorded information would take pressure off the driver and greatly enhance the experience.

    We did the full day tour visiting Seal Bay, Flinders Chase NP, a wildlife sanctuary and many other sites. It was a long day with a lot of driving because the island is 155km x 50km. Our coach driver and tour guide Adam was entertaining, knowledgeable and personable. He made the day extremely enjoyable. The aftermath of the bushfires are still noticeable however the vegetation & wildlife are coming back. Well worth it.

    We stayed at Kingscote and were collected at our hotel and driven to a meeting point to join fellow passengers on this day trip. This was the first of two full day trips we did on Kangaroo Island with our friendly informative guide/driver Adam. We started at Seal Bay with a guided beach walk along the beach with the seals, then off to Flinders Chase National Park to the amazing Remarkable Rocks to get some great photos. We checked the incredible Admirals Arch and the many seals swimming around. We had a very nice lunch at Vivionne Bay and last stop for the day was the Wildlife Park to check out all the animals and meet some of the Koalas rescued from the bush fires. Highly recommend this trip.

Some of the scenery was absolutely breathtaking and we were fortunate to see lots of the animals in the wild and also at the fauna sanctuary.

    My friend and I enjoyed the one day tour tour with an extremely knowledgeable guide Nikki Redman and very capable driver Zen
    Nikki kept us entertained with lots of stories about the flora and fauna of the island, which she obviously loves, as we drove from the ferry to Seal Rocks, then to The Remarkable Rock and The Arch and then on to The Wildlife Park.
    It was great to see how KI is recovering from the recent bushfires.
