Our Ferries

SeaLink operates two large, fast and comfortable ocean-going catamaran ferries between Cape Jervis on the South Australian mainland and Penneshaw on Kangaroo Island.

Feel the excitement mount as Kangaroo Island comes into view on your 45-minute crossing by SeaLink ferry from Cape Jervis to Penneshaw.  It’s a great way to start to your holiday.

Both ferries feature licensed cafes, airline and café style seating and lounges, TV/video monitors and a dolphin-viewing deck. Services operate an average of four times per day and up to 12 services per day during peak periods.
