Although there is only one ferry operator that provides ferries to Kangaroo Island, on the Cape Jervis to Penneshaw route, and as there are up to 5 ferries sailing a day, there is not one specific ferry timetable. This is also because ferry sailings can be impacted by a number of factors, such as time of year, and weather conditions, but we will always give you the most relevant information when you are making your booking.
Ferry prices are highly dependent on the circumstances of the ferry and to your specific journey, from what time of year you are travelling, to how you are travelling, such as by car or on foot. Because of this, we recommend checking out our handy fare finder tool, which lets you find the best ferry at the best price for you, and be sure to sign up to our email newsletter to be the first to hear about our latest deals and offers. .
On average, ferries to Kangaroo Island only take around 45 minutes, making it a quick and easy trip to take.
