    Just really poorly organised and executed - there was no health and safety information whatsoever and they plonked us in freezing cold water with barely any preparation whatsoever. There was zero visibility so we couldn't see anything anyway and then there was no blankets on the boat to keep us warm. Staff were very unhelpful and seemed more interested in 'ticking off' the itinerary and getting involved in the banter rather than imparting any knowledge or experience on the group. Basically paid 100 dollars to get put in freezing cold water.

    Swimming with a seal and with a pod of wild dolphins as well as snorkelling above many beautiful, small and colourful fish near Browns Beach was a very special experience. Our guide for the two hour experience, Elijah, worked hard to maximise our experience whilst always ensuring our safety and comfort. All this was combined with a thrilling and informative boat ride.

    Amazing trip with Elijah today...very respectful he skippered the boat to the dolphins and seals and all we had to do was to float over to them...we had seals all around us. Made us feel alive. 2 hours of an immersive experience and live the small group. 5 stars from us.

    We had a fantastic time with Elijah on our ocean safari snorkel. We had a truly exceptional experience with a large pod of dolphins, and were perhaps lucky to be in a small group. This was really special, unforgettable to be circled by dolphins beneath us! We were out of luck with the sea lions this day, but in luck to get a wonderful view of a white bellied sea eagle. The water is COLD in this location (and we were in winter) and to be honest hoods should definitely be provided. As it happens, time in water might be limited by the wildlife, but thicker wetsuits and hoods would improve the experience. The boat is absolutely fantastic, the scenery is great. We do recommend...but please add hoods.

    It was an awesome trip led by the super-friendly Elija. The kids loved riding over the small swell and watching the wedge tailed eagles. We swam with seals in a couple of spots. In one spot they were so playful - incredible to get that close for so long. It was July, so 15.8 in the water - definitely need the wind jacket they provide to put on over the steamer once back on board! We didn’t see any dolphins, which was a little disappointing. I’d had that experience several times before, so seals were the priority. I loved it, family loved it and the backdrop of the spectacular coast made made it a real highlight of the trip!

    Wonderful experience. Elijah looked after us so well taking us to the best spots. Saw lots of seals and loved seeing the snorkeling group swim with them. Scenery was amazing. Elijah was knowledgeable about the birds, seals, dolphins and the geology of the Island.

    This was definitely the highlight of our 4 days on Kangaroo Island! Elijah was really skilled and friendly, we were lucky as we were the only ones brave enough to go snorkelling on that freezing cold day, so it was as personalised as it gets. It actually wasn't too cold with the wetsuit though. The seals and dolphins were abundant, one very cheeky seal kept jumping in to play with us. We also got to see the KI geology we would never have seen had we not gone on the Safari. We would highly recommend this tour!

    1. ensure participants are strong swimmers - or wearing lifejackets (I did indicate I was average) 2. participants need to advised before embarking, they will pulled along, the water is likely to be bit choppy 3.At very least a crew member should be in the water when participants are either being towed or swimming. 4. The directions given prior to taking to the water were clear 5. Staff were friendly. 6. recommend for very strong confident swimmers only
