New Kangaroo Island Ferry
Kangaroo Island Connect (kic) has started a new high speed Kangaroo Island ferry running between Penneshaw and Cape Jervis in 30 minutes. The ferry is half the price and is a passengers only ferry and Kangaroo Island Connect also has a cheap car hire service on Kangaroo Island. See our Kangaroo Island Ferry Prices and Kangaroo Island Ferry Times.
The ferry is named ‘James Cowell’. James Cowell, farmed on Kangaroo Island for over 40 years. He opposed the monopoly rights over the fairway at Cape Jervis which prevented competition on the route for over 20 years.
kic provides a passenger ferry to Kangaroo Island which is cheaper, faster, luxury and more convenient than ever before.
The ferry is highly seaworthy. Passengers are seated in luxury touring coach type seating, as far aft (back of the ferry) as possible. This reduces the likelihood of seasickness. There are three cabins; a fun kids’ cabin, snoozers’ cabin or quiet area for exhausted travelers and the main cabin for chatterers. Learn more about the travel classes. The idea is to add some fun to the crossing.
