Not everyone likes swimming or snorkeling. If you prefer stay anchored in the boat, dry with a comfy seat, that's OK. Simply watch the dolphins swim right past up close.

Children and Adults are welcome onboard! We provide snorkels, safety vests and wet suits for passengers of all sizes. The kids LOVE mum and dad for this day out!

Snap the Perfect Photograph

If you bring your camera along, you won't be disappointed. With wild marine and bird life right up close to the boat, you'll snap shots to be the envy of your friends and family.

Morning & Afternoon Tea Provided

While out on a tour, you'll enjoy our fresh baked biscuits and cakes as you settle back with a hot cup of tea or coffee. All included in your tour price.

Your Experience of a Lifetime

Slip into the clear, calm, protected waters Kangaroo Island dolphins call home and enter their amazing world as they swim right up to you to say hello!

If you don’t feel like a swim, enjoy the dolphins' company right alongside the boat while you enjoy a coffee or tea and some home baked delights. As we move around different scenic locations, don’t be surprised if dolphins surf through the wake of our boat behind, jumping and playing … just so you can get some great photos of course! :-)

Over Kangaroo Island Marine Adventures' 13+ years, our local wild dolphins have built up trust in us, so they feel safe to approach our boat. Our vessel is a propellor-free vessel, meaning it's safe for you while you swim, and safe for all our wonderful marine life.  The unique friendship we have built with them ensures you will take home unique memories to last a lifetime … and a heap of photos to share with your friends.

Sea Eagles also often fly overhead as some cheeky seals pop their heads up to have a look. On the way to the Dolphin swim areas, we might pass some giant Sting Rays swimming past. Many months of the year, whales surround Kangaroo Island, so you might well be able to say “hello" to them as well! There is just so much to experience.

You have come to the right place to enjoy a wildlife experience of a lifetime on your Kangaroo Island holiday … Kangaroo Island Marine Adventures!

Today we had an amazing experience with Kangaroo Island Marine Adventures. Andrew the owner of the company was a great guide and told us a lot about the area and the dolphins. The dolphins are wild and happy animals who liked to play with us. Because of the wintertime it was a bit cold but swimming with the dolphins made us forget about that instantly! This is a once time opportunity to see these amazing animals in the wild and to swim with them. It was safe for the dolphins because we had a prope free boat so the dolphins can come really close to the boat without being hurt. This was definitely our best experience at Kangaroo Island! Thanks Andrew for taking us at your boat today.

Highly recommend this experience, have been visiting the Island for 10 years and this has been the best tour so far! Incredible intimate experience swimming up close with wild dolphins. Andrew was an friendly, fun and knowledgable guide who also showed us sea eagles and seals.

One of the most amazing experiences I've ever had ... Truly magical to swim with dolphins in the wild like that. Our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful to make sure we were able to get up close to the dolphins. Highly recommend.
