Stories from RADKI Guests
Best marine tour company on Kangaroo Island with a great team of people, I would highly recommend.
If you're looking for a unique adventure, showing you the best of the wildlife and wild coast of Kangaroo Island, then I could not recommend Ro & Phil more highly. With so much experience and passion, it's an unforgettable experience with the chance to see so many amazing animals, but also to learn about them and maybe even contribute to research that will help protect them. Get out there and get exploring on Radikal!!
