Ben & Liam successfully kayak to Kangaroo Island for latest Nova stunt

Adelaide’s Ben & Liam have clocked up yet another ambitious stunt, this time successfully navigating a kayak from the South Australian mainland to Kangaroo Island.

The Nova 919 Breakfast hosts, Ben Harvey and Liam Stapleton, embarked on the journey after broadcasting their show from the Cape Jervis Hotel on Tuesday morning, traversing shark-infested waters in their humble two-man vessel to reach the island.

Paddling through the Backstairs Passage to arrive at Penneshaw, the hosts managed to cross the 11 nautical mile journey in just over four hours.

“We’re both completely cooked,” they said upon making it to land.

“Do we regret it? No. Would we do it again? No. We rode our trusty vessel ‘Salma Kayak’ hard and fast (slow), but we made it and we’re stoked.”

Ben & Liam’s kayak stunt is just the latest in a number of challenges the Breakfast duo have taken part in throughout 2021, with the hosts previously making headlines for spending a week inside a glass box in Rundle Mall to raise $90,000 for Lifeline Adelaide.

The hosts also broadcasted an entire show while being suspended from a billboard in Adelaide’s CBD earlier this year.
