Port Lincoln Tours From Adelaide

For the adventurous, choose to swim with Great White Sharks and playful sea lions, while those seeking a little rest and relaxation can enjoy secluded bush walks. Meet some of Australia’s famously unique residents, including kangaroos and emus on land, then soak up the serene ocean atmosphere while cruising on a series of catamarans, ferries and boats in Australia’s seafood capitol.

Southern Ocean Wildlife Adventure Itinerary

Day 1 – Adelaide to Port Lincoln

An early start indeed but to fit all these amazing wildlife experiences in its required! See the sights of Point Pine, Port Augusta, and Cowell then head west to Port Lincoln, the seafood capitol of Australia and home of the epic adrenalin experience of shark cage diving!

After arriving in Port Lincoln around 1pm and checking into our accommodation at the Port Lincoln YHA we’ll head to Mikkira Station for a wander around the grounds in search of koalas and native Port Lincoln parrots. We’ll then head to Whalers Way for some stunning views of the coastline and back to town.

Day 2 – Port Lincoln – Shark Cage Dive or Whalers Way

Depending on your love affair with fear, today you’ll either be diving into the world of Great White Sharks or brushing up on local whaling history at Whaler’s Way Conservation Park. Choose the way of the Whalers and you’ll be visiting the remains of an old whaling station (where you’ll hopefully spot some kangaroos and emus), lunching in Lincoln National Park and stopping by Glen Forest Wildlife Park to hand-feed a few critters.

Choose shark diving and you’ll be boating out to sea, changing into dive gear and invited to hop in a cage for a meet-up with some real monsters of the deep. These are some critters we don’t suggest hand-feeding.

This half-day adventure takes us to a friendly community of sea lions where you can swim, snorkel, paddle and splash about in the company of these inquisitive animals. These puppy dogs of the sea love splashing, jumping, twisting, and twirling all around you and if you’re lucky you might even get a kiss!

Those preferring to stay on dry land can spend the day in Port Lincoln, perhaps strolling the foreshore or indulging in a seafood lunch. In the afternoon, return to Adelaide around 8.30pm where your wildlife adventure wraps up. There is no accommodation tonight so remember to book it before you leave.
