You will be picked up from the Port Lincoln Visitor Information Centre at 9:30am and once everyone is on board we’ll start our day heading to Coffin Bay National Park, which features some of the most scenic coastline in South Australia. Take your shoes and walk on the footprint free Almonta Beach and later have morning tea overlooking Coffin Bay National Park with spectacular 360-degree views.
Next its time for the tour highlight boarding the boat and travelling with Pure Coffin Bay Oysters out to their oyster lease, learning about the industry, how to shuck your own oysters and then tasting them. Then you’ll understand why Coffin Bay Oysters are recognised throughout the world, grown in the wild, just as nature intended.
We’ll take a town tour from the boat before we sit down for lunch at iconic seafood restaurant - 1802 Oyster Bar, to sample more fresh Coffin Bay seafood including King George Whiting, a favourite fish of the region. If you are not a seafood lover fear not, there are lots of other options.
After a shared feast of local produce, we jump back onto the bus and on the way back into Port Lincoln visit the oldest standing structure in Port Lincoln - The Old Mill. Built in 1846 as part of a flour mill complex, it was never used for that purpose however now its fully restored and a lookout tower with amazing views over the city and Boston Bay.
Our final destination is the Eyre Peninsula’s only craft brewery – Beer Garden Brewing, to taste their signature Beer, Eyre Peninsula Ale. Not a beer drinker, that’s OK as the venue champions other great Eyre Peninsula products including food, cider, wine and coffee.
At the completion of the tour we will drop you back at the wharf in time to re-join the other passengers and tell them what an incredible day they have just missed!.
