$190 per adult

Island Explorer Tour (3 hours)

Travel the North Coast of Kangaroo Island and witness some amazing coastal formations and learn from our highly skilled guides and skipper about the ecology of the north coast and its features. We get the chance to view dolphins in their natural environment as we pass through their relaxation areas. 

The Dolphins are very welcoming to us as we respect their need for privacy with pod sizes up to 25 bottle nosedolphins, wild & free.  The dolphins are very curious and will swim up alongside the vessel to take a closer look. For those that want a closer look, use our snorkel gear and wetsuits and jump into the dolphins’ environment for a swim! You are completely free to swim around, no ropes, no boundaries! Or for those that don’t want to get wet, sit back and enjoy the view. Visit a seal colony and watch their antics as they frolic in sea, they’re also very inquisitive and often swim by to take a closer look. Long-nosed Fur Seals and Australian sea lions live side by side in these locations. 

Be captivated by the ability of the White Bellied Sea Eagles as he soars high above then with deadly precision he plucks his dinner from the sea. Ospreys are also seen on the tours as well as a huge variety of coastal sea birds including Cormorants, Pacific Gulls, Albatross, Gannets, Terns, Eagles, Falcons and Giant Petrels. Visit a burgess soft shale fossil site dated at 540 million years old. Enjoy afternoon tea with home-made biscuits at one of several private beach locations.  View Southern Right Whales and Humpback Whales as they pass through our waters on their way to calf in warmer waters (June-Oct). It’s more than just a boat ride, it’s an experience!
