After months of delays a second Kangaroo Island ferry starts services this afternoon.
Fares on the KI Connect start at $25 one-way compared to $49 on SeaLink.
They're promising a faster trip just once a day to start, with the hope of adding a second crossing.
The 25m catamaran will be berthed at American River and run to Penneshaw then across to Cape Jervis.
But they won't transport vehicles.
SeaLink operates 12 services a day and six in winter.
