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.

    Absolutely amazing experience, we had a 7yr old who had never ridden before, Dave was absolutely phenomenal in teaching and talking to him. He is hands down the best guide we have ever experienced. The way he is with children in regard to making sure he has their full attention and understanding is beyond words. Dave made the whole experience so enjoyable. Highly recommend Kangaroo Island Outdoor Action!

    The Kangaroo Island is a wonder itself but Luca really helped us discover it. We booked the nocturnal tour with him and saw in less than 2h kangaroos, wallabes, koalas, penguins, pelicans and opossums. The following day we booked the full day with him and experienced the encounter with the seals/sea lions, a very close one with koalas, a nice barbaque and wonderful beaches.
    Luca is a great guide, he really made the experience on the island spectacular!

    Candice our buggy tour driver was very friendly and pleasant. She explained things very well and managed to grab the kids interest from our 4yo, 11, 12, and 13yo children. Ask for Candice and you won’t be disappointed!

    We really enjoyed the adventure with Andrew to visit the dolphins today! We went on his
    open jet boat with two other family groups ( no propellers to endanger wildlife or swimmers) . Andrew was entertaining and knowledgeable about the local wildlife - we saw eagles and seals as well as dolphins. It was just amazing to swim with the curious dolphins who seemed to enjoy the the visit from the boat, checking us out as soon as we arrived in the bay and enjoying a surf on the bow wave as we left. There were young calves and maybe as many as 30 dolphins during the morning. It was a bit chilly today but there were wet suits for use and snorkels/ masks. You need to be reasonably confident slipping into the water and climbing back on to the boat- there’s a ladder. We loved it, and our fellow swimmers did too. Andrew is great fun and offers an exciting opportunity to experience dolphins in their own environment choosing to interact with visitors.

    We all love this very new deep sea fishing experience very much! Gavin and Alex are so wonderful and professional in finding great spot for us to fish. It was a bit hard in the beginning but Gavin and Alex was managed to find a group of hungery fish so everyone was so excited to see so many fish bite! By the end of the day, we had a big esky half full and we still had those fish frozen in the freezer now, too much to eat! Highly recommended~

    The park is located on the western side of Kangaroo Island and takes a while to get to but well worth it. Start early and visit the Admirals Arch, and the Remarkable Rocks in 1 days. (many tours do Seal Bay also but we did that separately with the south and central part of the island). The park is a must do when visiting the island. We took a picnic lunch too. There are koalas living in the eucalyptus trees right outside the visitor center so we watched them for awhile.

    Getting up close and learning about those beautiful birds of prey was a delightful experience. I had second thoughts about going but I'm so pleased I did. Watching the birds soar and in flight was magical esp the glossy black cockatoo. The owl and eagle (pretty heavy) hold was well worth the experience.

    Thank you for an excellent day of fishing Sean and Connor! Emu Bay Fishing Charters was a highlight of our Kangaroo Island holiday.

    The crew’s professionalism, fishing expertise and great humor made for an enjoyable day. The boat was adequate for all and had everything we needed, equipment and bait supplied.

    Luckily, the fish were on and we caught a variety of species, including whiting, trevally and even a shark.

    We highly recommend this adventure!
