Island Explorer Tours

Ask Karla, our helpful concierge, about the stunning island explorer tour. Enjoy a marine wildlife experience along the stunning North Coast of Kangaroo Island. See seals, sea eagles and osprey and view ancient fossil beds.

A successful dolphin swim is something that cannot be rushed, which is why a 3 hour tour is recommended. This allows you the time to interact with wild dolphins at a pace that is comfortable for you and the dolphins.

Take the opportunity to swim with wild bottlenose dolphins in shallow and protected waters in an experience that will take your breath away. Relax with morning tea and home-made treats at a remote beach location.


ISLAND dining

Dining on Kangaroo Island can best be described as local, seasonal, boutique, artisan and always close to its source. Start your gastronomic journey at Dudley Wines while relaxing on the deck with fantastic coastal views while enjoying Dudley's locally grown and produced award-winning wines. Indulge in one of their gourmet Kangaroo Island pizzas or a platter.

Visit Sunset Food and Wine: a modern bistro-style restaurant focusing on seafood and fabulous local wine. Devour oysters, marron, abalone and King George whiting at American River's Oyster Farm Shop, washing it down with award-winning local gins at KI Spirits.

Swim in Crystal clear waters of Stokes Bay and then enjoy something scrumptious from what the island and the sea has to offer at Rockpool Cafe.
