Kangaroo Island Ocean Safari explores the magnificent coastlineand views marine animals including • DOLPHINS • SEALS • BIRD LIFE • WHALES

Kangaroo Island Ocean Safari departs daily from the Christmas Cove Marina in Penneshaw ‘Kangaroo Island’s gateway’.

Christmas Cove is one of Australia’s Geological Monuments cut out by glacial movement 240 million years ago and it offers the perfect access to board the 7.5-metre vessel, a Gemini Waverider that carries up to 12 passengers.

In 1802 Matthew Flinders discovered Kangaroo Island on his world expedition. See the landing places where he and his crew arrived and where French explorer Nicolas Baudin came ashore and inscribed his details into Frenchman’s rock in Hog bay.

Kangaroo Island Ocean Safari takes you on an awesome 75 minute coastal and wildlife tour around the coastline of Kangaroo Island visiting places like Dolphin Cove, Cuttlefish Bay, Kangaroo Head, and Snapper Point.

Encounter pods of Bottle Nose and Common Dolphins that can be seen up close and you can enjoy them in their natural environment swimming up alongside the boat, with numbers sometimes in the dozens and often with their baby calves.

Colonies of New Zealand Fur Seals and Australian Sea Lions inhabit the coast that surrounds Kangaroo Island and these seals gather along the rocks enjoying the warm sun, resting after fishing for days on end and show off their agile swimming ability right before your eyes.

Witness Southern Right Whales (seasonal) as they pass through these waters on their annual migration to the Great Australian Bight.

Look in awe at these giant majestic creatures, often with their new calves who have swum so far from the Great Southern Ocean to give birth in the warmer safer waters of Kangaroo Island.

There are many varieties of sea birds on the Safari including the unforgettable encounters with the mighty Osprey or sometimes known as the Sea Hawk.

Opportunities arise on this wildlife Safari to marvel at the Osprey diving into the ocean to grasp fish with their powerful talons.

Cormorants and Gulls are abundant along the coast.

Put Kangaroo Island Ocean Safari on your ‘must-do’ list – this is a Safari not to be missed on your visit to Kangaroo Island.
