Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The experience was great from the start to the finish. The gracious hospitality of Gavin and Alex was another highlight of the trip. They both helped, chatted and remained happily interactive at all times. The boat and facilities were great and the fishing results were even better. These guys are a professional outfit and ensured I'll return before too long. Next time with my kids.

I had an great day with Kangaroo Island fishing Adventures.

Gavin and Alex run an excellent operation and are very friendly with the customers which made for a very relaxed atmosphere on the boat.

I would have no problem recommending people to use KI Fishing Adventures if you are looking for a day out on the water at Kangaroo Island.

Outstanding Fishing Charter!! I took my 80 year old father and my two sons, 19 and 14 for a day charter. Gavin Solly, the skipper, has outstanding knowledge of the Investigator Strait and the waters beyond and promptly located plenty of fish for all on board. Alex who was the deckhand and fixer of all problems, was so knowledgeable and happy to assist with fishing tips and baiting up hooks. We bagged out on nannygai and then went on to target king George whiting. So good was the charter we booked again the next day.
The second days charter saw us again bag out on the nanny’s, bag three sharks and Gavin also managed to get my 80 year a large Samson!
This charter is easily the best, friendliest and most accomodating charter I have been out on.
I would recommend staying at the KI Fishing Adventure cottages which are 10 mins from the marina - these are the best after a massive day on the water, to relax and have a couple of beers and tell some tall stories….
Thanks Gav and Alex for the wonderful experience and looking after dad and the three generations of his family….we’ll see you again soon.

This fishing charter ticked all the boxes. Gav and Alex are brilliant hosts with unbelievable knowledge and friendliness, the area is absolutely stunning and of course we caught so many fishes. I went with my family and we loved it. I am a novice at fishing and it could not have been more fun! Cannot recommend this charter enough. Thanks guys!

Couldn’t have picked better hosts. Gav and Alex made the charter experience unbelievable even for beginners, they were so helpful and easy to talk too. It was an awesome day on the water full of laughs and some unreal fishing.

I went out in early February with a group of 9 other people who had chartered the boat. The first cast whilst motoring out caught a HUGE tuna! A great omen as on my first cast, I caught two nannygais!

All in all, a great day with over several species caught including nannygai, tuna, mackerel, harlequin trout, whiting, and even one eel! And we had a dolphin parade following us as we came in from the day.

Alex and Gavin know their trade, their boat and fishing off KI. They were helpful but not pushy at all, provided help when asked and otherwise let us do our thing.

Couldn’t recommend this charter and experience with Gavin and Alex enough! Great service and knowledge, plus bagged out fishing.
Stayed at one of the cabins and was extremely convenient and of high quality, with a filleting shed on-site.
They are amazing hosts and it really added extra value to the whole experience.

We were able to join a fishing charter at very short notice and were treated to a day of full on fishing and took home an esky full of fish for Christmas. Alex and Gavin are great hosts and know all the best fishing spots! They are also good at teaching beginners to fish. If you love fishing or want to try it out I highly recommend going out with these guys!
