Xplore Eyre launch 1 Day Coffin Bay Tour from Port Lincoln

Hassie and the team at Xplore Eyre are excited to announce the launch of a new 1 Day Coffin Bay Tour which will be departing from Port Lincoln twice a week from September. Combining the best local produce, meet the maker experiences, stunning coastal scenery and wildlife, this Coffin Bay Tour will give visitors to the region a real taste of Australia’s premier oyster growing destination.  

A Taste of Coffin Bay

The new 1 Day Coffin Bay Tour includes highlights such as the Coffin Bay National Park, a ‘Pure Coffin Bay Oysters’ personalised Oyster Lease Tour and Tastings, a delicious fresh seafood lunch at 1802 Oyster Bar, a visit to Beer Garden Brewing and of course the spectacular scenery and wildlife of the Eyre Peninsula. Led by Paul Farnan, long time Port Lincoln local and passionate ambassador for the region, this unique tour itinerary is guaranteed to be an excellent day out for just $159 all inclusive.

Xplore Eyre owner Craig “Hassie” Haslam said, “Paul  has done such a fantastic job growing our Port Lincoln Day Tour – Tasting Eyre over the past 12 months, we felt the time was right to develop a unique Coffin Bay tour with scheduled departures all year round.  After 15 years of just having Jo & I in the business, it has been fantastic over the past two years to be able to bring on board a Business Development & Marketing Manager, an Operations Manager based at our depot in Adelaide and of course Paul in Port Lincoln who we are confident will grow this tour into a 5 star TripAdvisor experience just has he has the Port Lincoln Day Tour.

We will be holding an official launch in Port Lincoln later this month and look forward to working with the South Australian Tourism Commission, our Regional Tourism Board and local businesses to continue to promote “our backyard” as a must see destination when visiting Australia.”
