For a 45 minute ferry ride this is ridiculously overpriced ! Personally I would have opted out but my travel buddy was super keen to visit Kangaroo Island (which I think is over rated) - I was shocked when I phoned to book & got prices - this must be the most expensive Ferry trip in the world (it was...

Disgusting. Lady hit by car coming off ferry laying on ramp with serious head shoulder and leg injuries. Staff just sat by and watched. No offer of assistance. They continued off loading cars and trucks putting people assisting her in serious danger of being run over. I am appaulded.

Thank you for your comments. This incident was reported last Friday and has been fully investigated. A SeaLink employee was part of the group that was assisting this lady. He was our Chinese speaking driver/guide and he conversed with the lady who had fallen out of her car when the driver had driven forward prior to her being safely in... More

The boat was perfectly fine, but it cost us $600 for four adults and a car to go on a 45 minute ferry journey. We almost decided not to go to Kangaroo Island because of this huge cost. It's a real shame that one company can put people off the island like this. This is a real example of a... More

Overall, the trek from our Adelaide hotel to Kangaroo Island and back was outstanding. But be forewarned that the day begins and ends with a long bus and ferry ride; this is a full 17-hour day. On our particular day, the ferry ride was a bit rocky. The tour was well-coordinated, especially considering all the pieces involved and the number... More

We did this tour as part of a 3 week trip round Australia for our honeymoon. I cannot recommend this tour more highly. Yes you do have two quite long days. However this is more than compensated for by some of the best wildlife and stunning scenery I have ever seen. The highlights were seeing the sea lions at Hanson... More

We booked the one day tour and basically enjoyed the main contents of the tour. While the guide was funny and informative, it turned out to be a distraction that we had to pick up (or offload) other passenger during the tour. At the end of the day, we had spent more hours in the bus than on the main... More
