3 Day Southern Ocean Wildlife Adventure

 

The Southern Coast of Australia is an untapped beauty! Come with us on this fun packed trip to meet some of the locals - marine locals that is! Hand feed blue fin tuna, you will need more than a pair of flippers to keep up with these guys! Suit up and cage dive (if you dare!) with the spectacular Great White Shark, and top it off with a boat cruise to frolic with our wild Sea Lions.

Itinerary: day by day

Day 1 Adelaide/Port Lincoln/Swim with Tuna

DEFAULT PICK UP: Adelaide Central YHA (135 Waymouth St), 06:45am

Leave Adelaide behind and travel to the Yorke Peninsula by ferry. We will make our way to Port Lincoln and onto a luxury catamaran to explore the surrounding area. Snorkel in clear waters and hand feed blue fin tuna, one of the fastest fish in the world. This is like swimming with lightening - these fish can travel at speeds up to 80km per hour. After discovering this underwater world, cruise across Boston Bay and back to Port Lincoln. Before the evening ends, visit Mikkira Station to get up close to koalas. (LD)

Day 2 Whalers Way Conservation Park/Port Lincoln

Today is the day you can choose to cage dive with great white sharks (optional and at own expense). If you choose this option, you'll head out on a boat for the day to the Neptune Islands to see these ultimate marine predators. Each person spends a minimum of thirty minutes in the actual cage, and lunch is included on board.

If you are looking for something a little less extreme, we will visit the Whalers Way Conservation Park to see some spectacular coastlines - keep an eye out for kangaroos and emus. Next is the Port Lincoln National Park for a bushwalk. We will head to the Glen Forest Wildlife Park for lunch, and you will also be able to hand feed some of the animals. (BLD)

Day 3 Hopkins Island (Swimming with Sea Lions)/Adelaide

Take a boat cruise to Hopkins Island to snorkel with sea lions this morning. Swimming among these playful creatures is a real highlight. Wetsuit and snorkel equipment is provided on the boat at no additional cost. Tea and coffee are provided, and you can bring your own snacks or purchase snacks on board. After a fun morning, board an afternoon ferry to Adelaide, where the trip ends. (BL)
