Overview

(Operates December to March)

It’s no secret the Eyre Peninsula is home to some of the world’s best seafood and that’s why it’s the best destination for seafood lovers. Far from the pollution of big cities, the untamed Southern Ocean, surrounded by rugged coastline and sheltered coves, provides the perfect aquatic environment for marine life to thrive. The Eyre Peninsula’s unparalleled seafood can be found in restaurants across the world but is best sampled straight from the source. Free your inner hunter and gatherer – shuck oysters just plucked from the ocean and reel in fish off the back of a boat. Taste your way around the region with the immersive ocean-to-plate experiences and learn about the seafood industry from those who live and breathe the salty air. The Eyre Peninsula’s pristine coastal environs provide the perfect backdrop. When paired with gourmet lunches, local produce and wine, and luxury accommodation, it creates the ultimate seafood lover’s experience. With two nights pre and post-tour in luxury at the Sofitel Adelaide, this is really the perfect South Australian epicurean odyssey.

Day 2: Seafood Lovers Tour

A transfer will take you to Adelaide Airport to catch your short flight to Ceduna. Touching down in the Eyre Peninsula, your expert guide will greet you and give you an overview of what to expect for the next three days over lunch.

Then, a four-wheel driving adventure through undulating dunes to your own deserted beach heralds the start of your seafood safari. The vivid pink hues of Lake MacDonnell, world-famous swells of Cactus Beach and vast, deserted beaches of Point Sinclair offer endless photo opportunities. Pull up at Denial Bay, and try your hand crabbing for coveted blue swimmers to stow away for later. Come late afternoon, continue up the coast and check into your beachside spa villa with views over the ocean. Sit back as your guide regales local stories and prepares dinner featuring the day’s bounty. Sampling your seafood feast as the sun slips beyond the horizon, you’ll soon realise nothing compares to the satisfaction of tucking into a meal you’ve sourced yourself, especially when some of the best seafood in the world is on the menu.

Day 3: Seafood Lovers Tour

Wake to the gentle lull of waves lapping on the shore beyond your window and head out to your beachfront balcony for breakfast. Another seafood-filled day stretches out before you. Casting off aboard the 50ft sea vessel ‘Asherah’, the ultimate ocean-to-plate experience for seafood lovers awaits. Pluck and shuck your own oysters, then cast a line off the back of the boat and try your luck snagging Australian salmon, all in time for lunch. The crew will put each component of your catch to good use with an array of canapés paired with a curated list of local wines. It doesn’t get much better than this. Back on the mainland, take a stroll along the beach and relax at your beachside accommodation before joining the locals for an evening meal at the Ceduna Hotel.

Day 4: Seafood Lovers Tour

Savour your final moments by the sea on an early morning beach walk or enjoy a sleep-in set to the soundtrack of the ocean as your breakfast is prepared on the foreshore. Your gourmet seafood lover’s safari continues today with a coveted oyster farm tour. Winding down the coast to the sleepy seaside village of Smoky Bay, head to SA Premium Oysters’ working oyster lease, learning about the world- renowned industry from the boat crew. Disembark onto the ocean-framed viewing platform, and pluck and shuck premium Pacific oysters straight from the ocean. Surrounded by the glassy waters of Smoky Bay and reflecting on the past few days with a plump oyster in hand, you’ll understand why the Eyre Peninsula has been dubbed the seafood frontier of Australia.

As the day draws to a close, make one last stop at a secret bay for afternoon tea featuring a selection of freshly baked pastries and sweet treats paired with local dessert wines. Your Guide will drop you at Ceduna Airport to catch a 5.20 pm flight to Adelaide, with airport transfers having you back to your accommodation at the Sofitel Adelaide at around 7 pm.

    We had a lovely day. It was so scenic and relaxing. we were not expecting to learn this much but so glad that we did.
  • Avatar Daniela Cetrangolo ★★★★★ 6 months ago
    In March 2021 four of us did the Best of Port Lincoln and Coffin Bay and we still talk about our experience when we catch up. From the minute we were greeted at the airport by our tour guide Ian the fun began. Ian was a fountain of information … More and he certainly made our experience memorable. He showed us many amazing sights, our hotel accommodation was A1 and our food was 10/10. Getting into our waders and sitting down at a semi-submerged water pavilion, shucking oysters washed down with some wine was an experience we will never forget. We will be back!!!

    We did a whole day tour of Port Lincoln and it was truly the highlight of our trip. Our tour guide, Ian, was just so friendly and knowledgably about the area. It was definitely worth it and we are so glad we did it to discover the best … More of Port Lincoln!

    What an amazing way to see the Eyre Peninsula! Hassie has got to be the most informed person of the EP, and wow does he have some stories.
    I will definitely be getting on an Adelaide Hills tour asap and maybe even one of their WA tours!

    We recently were treated to a fully guided whale watching tour and have been raving about it ever since. We saw things we were in awe of, went to places that we can't wait to return, learned things about the area that were amazing … More and stayed in beds that were oh so comfortable. We would recommend Untamed Escapes to anyone who wants to get the best of the Eyre Peninsula and Nullarbor Plain during whale watching season!

    4 days of exploring and experiencing the Margaret River region. Wow wow wow, loved the visual delights, nutritional sensations, the slowness of yoga sessions, the workshops of sourdough making at One Table Farm; the education received from … More the Spice Mistress and her delightful food. The experience of tasting gin for the first time and walking an 8km section of the Cape to Cape. Thank you so much Jodie, Gem and Riley for making me feel so welcomed, you looked after us girls in every way. Glamping at Fair Harvest was a treat I’ll never forget 🤩🤩🤩

    I absolutely loved my 10 day trip across the Nullarbor from Adelaide to Perth, there was not one thing I would change. The Nullarbor was on my bucket list of things to do and you can’t do it any better than living out of a swag. If you … More get the chance to swim with the seals and dolphins do it, it’s worth every cent. I just loved seeing the kangaroos on the beach over in WA and the huge trees and the bush walks we did. Don’t think about it just go ahead and do it.
