Here we show you some of the options in seafood 'taste and tour' experiences.
Tours and Tastings
There are a number of ways you can get to sample the freshest seafood on Eyre Peninsula, learn a little along the way, and perhaps make a purchase to take home and impress your friends.
Oyster lovers cannot go past a tour in Coffin Bay with Oyster HQ for a wade in the water, or Experience Coffin Bay for a boat tour to an oyster lease, both with oysters and wine on tap and plenty of interesting stories about the industry.
Seafood cruises in Boston Bay are available with Triple Bay Charters - a small and intimate tour to Boston Island, and the kingfish farms with tastings, and Adventure Bay Charter's Seafood Bay Cruise, a larger seated tour suitable for bigger groups, which takes in the waters of Boston Bay and also includes seafood tastings. Both offer knowledgeable tour guides able to share the rich history of fishing and aquaculture in Port Lincoln.
A great way to get an overview of many fishing sectors in Port Lincoln is via a seafood tour at The Fresh Fish Place with their behind the scenes factory tours. Perfect for families and groups and includes tastings of many varieties of seafood.
