Due to overwhelming demand from passengers, SeaLink have a launched a new fully escorted tour, the 6 day/5-night Ultimate Kangaroo Island tour, departing 24 February 2017.
The tour will be escorted by well-known South Australian Tour Escort, Shirley Tamm, who has over 35 years' experience in the travel industry and will explore Kangaroo Island's fascinating wildlife, spectacular coastal scenery, stunning landscapes, pristine beaches and unique local wines and produce.
"I'm so excited to be offering this new Kangaroo Island tour. The 4-night Kangaroo Island tour has been so popular for the past 2 years, but feedback from passengers was that they wanted even longer on Kangaroo Island so I've put together a fantastic 6 days/5-night option.
This new tour is a combination of everyone's favourite places like Seal Bay and Flinders Chase National Park, the Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch plus exciting new places like Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park, Stokes Bay and Rob's Shearing and Sheep Dogs to name just a few." Shirley Tamm explains.
"I really believe this tour shows off just how beautiful the island is, the breathtaking sights and wildlife and how much the island has to offer." Continues Shirley.
Like all of Shirley's escorted tours, she will host the group across the entire six days.
"I pride myself on really looking after my guests. I'm with them all day every day and ensure they have a wonderful time." Ms Tamm continues.
