Exploring Coffin Bay
Your guide will greet you at your Port Lincoln accommodation at around 8 am and we’ll start the day by heading to Coffin Bay National Park to see some stunning coastline. Take your shoes off for a stroll along Almonta Beach and enjoy morning tea with spectacular views.
Next, it’s time to board the boat with Chris from Pure Coffin Bay Oysters to head 16 km out in calm waters to their oyster lease. As he plucks fresh oysters from the ocean, Chris will happily share his knowledge about the local industry. From the water, you will experience all the beauty of the pristine coastline and spot the seals at Brothers Island. We often spot dolphins along the way, too. After the cruise, we’ll head back to the ‘Shellar Door’ to see how the oysters are processed and grab some extras for later on.
It’s time for lunch so get ready to feast on a world-class seafood platter at the iconic 1802 Oyster Bar & Restaurant. Including King George Whiting, crab, southern calamari, cockles and of course, oysters, served in a range of exquisite ways, this meal is sure to impress. If you are not a seafood lover, fear not, there are lots of other options.
As we mosey back down the coast towards Port Lincoln, stop at multi-award-winning specialty coffee roasters The Boston Bean Coffee Company, where the hardest decision of the day will be deciding which coffee to choose. Then get ready for your final taste sensation enjoying a tasting paddle of sustainably brewed beers at the Eyre Peninsula’s very own boutique brewery, Beer Garden Brewing. Served up with an antipasto platter of local produce, it’s the perfect way to end a fabulous day of touring on the Eyre Peninsula.
As you come to the end of your culinary journey, your guide will drop you back at your Port Lincoln accommodation between 5 pm and 5.30 pm.
