Commited to caring for our envrionement
At Kangaroo Island Marine Adventures, we are committed to sustainable tourism practices. Pioneers of marine tourism on Kangaroo Island, we have been operating for 17 years, and have over 35+ years experience in the industry. We believe that it is our responsibility to care for the environment and to protect the delicate ecosystems that we visit on our tours. We take great care to minimise our impact on the island, and we work hard to educate our guests about the importance of marine conservation. We operate prop-free-tours, using safe boat jets that provide a sympathetic acoustic pattern our resident dolphins in the Kangaroo Island dolphin habitat known as the 'Dolphins lounge room' love. Our goal is to ensure that Kangaroo Island remains a beautiful and pristine environment for generations to come.
It is through this commitment Kangaroo island Marine Adventures has been approved as a Green Travel Leader by Eco Tourism Australia for the past 10 years. Kangaroo Island Marine Adventures also operates in a Mission Blue Hope Spot, and have been working with Dolphin Watch for the past 17 years to work with them to add to their study programmes monitoring the wellbeing and habitat of our local whales and dolphin pods.

Kangaroo Island Marine Adventures have been chosen by Dolphin Watch to work with them to add to their study programmes monitoring the wellbeing and habitat of our local whales and dolphin pods. For over 10 years, we have fed back information to the Dolphin Watch team and run regular surveys allowing local volunteers the opportunity to get out and study these amazing animals.
