This fully guided interpretive tour takes in the spectacular rugged coastal scenery of the area, with many points of interest and stunning views over the Southern Ocean.

After lunch we join the two hour Seafood Bay Cruise for some sightseeing across the beautiful waters of Boston Bay and learn about the Tuna and Aquaculture Industries with expert local commentary.

Port Lincoln Hotel

Port Lincoln is a town of approximately 12,000 people and was originally considered a site for the state’s capital. The township is located on the banks of beautiful Boston Bay which is three and a half times the size of Sydney Harbour. The town is the base for Australia’s largest tuna fleet and tuna farming industry. Tuna fishing has been extremely lucrative in recent years and has created some very wealthy people. In fact, there are more millionaires per capita in Port Lincoln than anywhere else in Australia!

This morning we’ll enjoy an interpretive tour around the Port Lincoln Marina with a local guide. Then, take a behind the scenes look at the fishing industry with a Seafood Lovers tour at the Fresh Fish Place. After a gourmet seafood lunch (alternative meals available) the rest of the afternoon can be spent at your leisure. Enjoy some time in the town centre, or visit some of the local galleries.

This area is considered one of the best viewing areas in the world with up to 100 whales congregating in the seas adjacent to the Bunda Cliffs at any one time. A large viewing platform offers people safety from the cliffs but also fantastic views.
This afternoon we visit an interpretive centre operated by the Conservation and Land Management Department. Then, head off on an included Scenic Flight over the spectacular coastline, keeping an eye out for migrating whales. Our aircraft for the day is a Cessna Grand Caravan, with high wing, air-conditioning and turbine reliability. The scenic flight will take us all the way back to Ceduna, saving a long drive back from Head of Bight! Tonight, we enjoy our final evening together at the Foreshore Hotel. Meals: B.L.D
