Take part in a small group tour with a maximum of six passengers. Admire the sea lions of Seal Bay and witness the wildlife of the North Coast in this immersive experience.

Visit the Seal Bay Conservation Park and admire sea lions resting on the beach from just a few meters away. Next, visit Duck Lagoon and encounter parrots like the Crimson Rosella and Rainbow Lorikeet. You'll also see eucalyptus flourishes on the shore and spot some koalas. After lunch, continue your tour with a visit to the Emu Bay beach, where you might spot dolphins swimming close to the shore. Enjoy one of the most beautiful and safest swimming locations on the island, with a possible swimming break in summer. Next, head toward Stokes Bay to spot Kangaroos and Wallabies grazing.

At the end of the tour, after seeing Sea Lions, Kangaroos, Koalas, Wallabies and, if you are lucky enough, even an Echidna up close, enjoy drop-off back at your hotel, the airport or ferry port.

What people are saying about Kangaroo Island

A lovely afternoon out on the water. Our guide was brilliant- still not sure how he managed to find us two pods of dolphins in that massive ocean. We got to see both bottle-nosed and common dolphins, as well as seals and sea eagles, all from the comfort of a very clean and new boat. Would highly recommend this.

Our tour guide Elijah was very knowledgeable and tried his best to find the dolphins and seals for us, which there were plenty! We loved it, he was very experienced and friendly. Thank you for a great time, we'll definitely recommending the tour to our friends.

Good adventure led by a fun group. We got to see and do all we wanted. We would do it all again.

Thank you guides Elija and Steve. You were great fun and had expert knowledge.

Very Informative,great friendly staff, fun and felt safe on the boat
