Itinerary

Coffin Bay Oyster Farm Tour

FULL ITINERARY

Your day begins as it does for most Eyre Peninsula locals, resetting and rejuvenating by the ocean. This tour takes in Coffin Bay National Park, home to a swathe of the Eyre Peninsula’s best beaches, including Almonta Beach. Roam secluded, sandy shores without another soul in sight – except for the resident kangaroos and emus – then settle in by the sea for morning tea with panoramic views across the vast landscape.

Venture around the coast to our next destination, where world-famous Coffin Bay oysters are primed for tasting. Learn about the Eyre Peninsula’s enviable seafood industry as you glide through crystal-clear waters to Experience Coffin Bay’s working oyster farm. See oysters plucked straight from the ocean, then sample the briny fruits of your labour.

The taste of the ocean on your tongue, vivid waters lapping at your side and a gentle sea breeze on your cheek – this is a gourmet experience to awaken your senses. After your oyster epiphany, cruise back to shore. You may even be joined by the local pod of dolphins who call these waters home.

Your gourmet seafood escape continues back on land. Pull up a seat overlooking the bay at 1802 Oyster Bar & Restaurant, where head chef Andy will introduce you to his favourite local produce sourced from the surrounding sea and land with a delicious tasting menu. Take your time and take it all in before we meander back towards Port Lincoln.

The perfect pairing for your seafood feast, local wines and sweeping views await at Boston Bay Wines. Perched above the Southern Ocean, sample a range of premium wine and meet Tony and Sonia, second-generation wine growers and producers.

At day’s end, we’ll drop you at your Port Lincoln accommodation between 5 pm and 5.30 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 hamideh taleby ★★★★★ 4 months ago
    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!
  • Avatar Vaniece Kelly-Howe ★★★★★ 8 months ago
    We had a wonderful West Coast adventure - whale watching and more. We loved every minute and are looking forward to Untamed day trip Escapes around Coffin Bay and Port Lincoln coming up soon!
  • Avatar Paula McManus ★★★★★ 8 months ago
    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!

    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!

    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!!!

    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.

    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 🤩🤩🤩
