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.

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!

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.

Unforgetable We had the pleasure to meet the best guide in town Andrew who accompanied un through the morning for an unforgettable experience. This was the only tour to be 100% positive to see dolphins and much more. Thanks to him we had the opportunity to see and even to swim with wild dolphins! We then enjoyed a cup of tea/coffee while watching at a seal colony and raptor sea birds... Andrew's happiness made this moment amazing! All in all this tour is definitely worth it!

An incredible experience, I've been on a few dolphin swims and this was by far more superior than the others. We saw plenty of dolphins up close and personal. You get the boat to an area known to have dolphins then in small groups you take turns in the water. Each group gets about 2-3 turns for about 10 minutes each.
