That’s right, if you book direct with us we are so confident that you will have a fantastic experience with us that we guarantee it!

We GUARANTEE that you will have an Adventure with us on Kangaroo Island instead of just a holiday.

You will have experiences to talk about for years to come and memories that will last you forever.

In the unlikely event that you are not completely satisfied with the tour, you may simply fill in one of our feedback forms describing why you are disappointed, (so we can improve your experience and our product) return it to us within thirty days, and we will issue a full refund for what you paid. We want you to have the absolute best experience possible!

2. We Can Train You To Ride Safely GUARANTEED!

Your safety is our first priority. We adhere to strict safety standards on all of our tours.

Over 90% of our guests have never ridden a quad before they come to Kangaroo Island Outdoor Action.

All quads for children and inexperienced riders are either fully automatic or semi automatic.

All safety equipment such as helmets and goggles is provided and meets Australian Safety Standards.

We have trained thousands of first time riders on our purpose built practice tracks complete with safety barriers.

We guarantee we can train you to ride safely on our practice track or you choose one of the following:
(a) Go as a passenger with the guide and come back later and try again for FREE (Yes, you get a voucher to return and try again for free)
(b) Get your money back (yes, a full refund, no questions asked)

While you are on tour with our experienced guides, you only ever have to ride as fast as you feel safe and comfortable, there is never any pressure to keep up to the guide or other riders.

All tours are adapted to the abilities of the riders and you only stop learning when the tour is finished.

At any time during the tour, if you no longer feel safe or comfortable riding, you can complete the tour as a passenger with the guide on one of our specialised multi-seat ATV’s.


At any time during the tour, if you, or your child, or our highly trained guides, feel that your child has had enough, that their concentration is slipping, or they are no longer riding safely, they can complete the tour as a passenger with the guide on one of our specialised multi-seat ATVs.

(And yes, they also get a voucher to return and try the whole tour again for free)

Experienced Riders:

If you are an experienced rider please let us know when booking so that we can recommend the right tour for you.

You also have the option of the Sports Upgrade, a more powerful sports quad with gears (only available for riders aged 16yrs and older) that can be used on any tour.

As soon as all riders have demonstrated that they can ride in a competent and controlled way on the practice track, the tour can begin.

As always, the tours are adapted to the abilities of the riders so as long as you are riding safely, your tour will go further and travel quicker. Don’t let ambition exceed ability!

As a member of the Support Group for the development of Activity Safety Guidelines (ASG) for Quad Bike Tourism, Brenton has been working with TIANZ (Tourism Industry Association New Zealand) towards the implementation of improved safety standards for the industry.

You are safe in the knowledge that you are touring with the industry leader and that Kangaroo Island Outdoor Action is a Quality Accredited business with the Australian Tourism Accreditation Program.

3. Environmental Sustainability GUARANTEED!

This means that you can enjoy your adventure safe in the knowledge that we are protecting this unique natural area for future generations to appreciate and enjoy.

4. All Tours Operate In All Weather - We’ve Got The Gear For You To Stay Dry GUARANTEED!

Tours are operated in all weather conditions (unless the safety of guests and guides is at risk, eg when there is thunder and lightning directly overhead or there is catastrophic fire danger conditions.)

The weather can be completely different on one side of Kangaroo Island to the other and is constantly changing. There is a saying among the locals that “If you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes.”

Because we are located at Vivonne Bay, on the south coast of Kangaroo Island, the average rainfall is a lot lower than further inland. Even on rainy days we often only have scattered showers and since the quads can travel both faster than the clouds and in different directions, it is easy to stay out of the rain.

“There’s no such thing as bad weather, just bad choices of clothing”

Your tour equipment includes optional wet weather gear which utilises the latest technology in waterproof and breathable fabrics to make sure you stay dry and comfortable no matter what the conditions.

On days that are forecast to be very hot, the early morning and evening Quad Tours are the ones to choose.

Cool, southerly, sea breezes are common at Vivonne Bay during the summer, and occur nearly every evening which can make it the perfect place to spend the last part of the day.

Always feel free to call our office to take advantage of our local knowledge and get an on the spot weather report.

5. You Can See Australian Native Animals In Their Natural Environment - Wildlife Viewing GUARANTEED!

We guarantee that we can show you Australian Native animals in their natural environment during your quad tour.

Animals that are commonly seen on tour include Kangaroos, Tammar Wallabies, Koalas, Rosenberg Goannas, Short Beaked Echidnas and Wedge-Tailed Eagles.

With many Australian native animals being nocturnal (active at night), it can be difficult to see them during your stay. Different animals can be found at varied times of the day and the longer your tour, the better chance you have of seeing more animals.

At Kangaroo Island Outdoor Action, your guide knows the places where you are most likely to see native animals during the day, take advantage of their local knowledge.

We guarantee you will see the Kangaroo Island Kangaroos up close in their natural environment when you choose the Sunset Kangaroo Safari and ride on the last quad tour of the day.

If observing the wildlife is your priority, please let us know during booking so that we can recommend the right tour for you.

6. No Minimum Numbers – We Will Run A Tour Just for You GUARANTEED!

You could have your very own tour, personalised just for you.

While you could join a small group for your chosen quad tour, particularly when it is busy, if no-one else is booked in for your tour, you are guaranteed your tour will go.

We just love going for a ride too, and will be glad that you want to join us.

You will get to experience the absolute best possible tour as it will be totally tailored to your skills and interests.

8. Small Client to Guide Ratio GUARANTEED!

All of our tours maintain a small client to guide ratio. There are no minimum numbers for any of our tours.

Safety is the first priority at Kangaroo Island Outdoor Action and we are focussed on maintaining high industry standards.

The client to guide ratio depends on the experience level of the guide and the clients. It is usually less than 6:1 and never exceeds 8:1.

Extra guides, assistant guides or guides under instruction can also assist the lead guide on your tour.

All of our guides are qualified in first aid, and carry an extensive first aid kits and phones/radios for emergency communications.

Smaller groups on tour allow for a more personalized trip and lead to a better experience.

Small groups generally take less time to put on their safety gear such as helmets, goggles and gloves and also require less time on the practice track than large teams.

This means you spend less time waiting for others, spend more time riding your quad on your tour, and have more time to spare at the end of the day, relishing your accomplishments.

Small groups also have more inherent flexibility to accommodate different levels of skill within your group.

If you have a larger group, we will provide more guides. This is subject to availability and pre-booking a large group is essential.

For the absolute premium Quad Tour experience, consider the Private Tour Upgrade for your group. The tour then comprises just you, your family or friends, and the guide. This guarantees the tour will be tailored to your abilities, interests and requirements and ensures that your group will have the best possible experience.
