Tour itinerary - 1 Days
Swim with the Sea Lions at Port Lincoln
Our Sea Lion tour departs at 8 am, so we get you to meet us at the boat in Port Lincoln Marina at 7:30 am. Alternatively, we can arrange transfers from most accommodation options in town. From here we cruise along the edge of the Port Lincoln National Park to Hopkins Island located 1.5 hours from town. We serve a selection of fresh fruit, muffins along with a choice of tea, coffee and hot chocolate on the way. Many of our trips out to the Hopkins will sight pods of dolphins that come to play at the bow of the boat, white-bellied sea eagles nesting in the National Park, and if it's the right time of year we sometimes come across pilot, blue and humpback whales. Once we arrive at Hopkins Island we moor the vessel in approximately 4 metres of water inside a sheltered cove off the back of a beach where the colony of Sea Lions live. Once our crew have fitted you out in a full wetsuit, mask, snorkel and flippers and you will be able to join the playful Sea Lions in the water, or if you would prefer you are welcome to observe all the action from the boat. We are lucky to be able to guarantee interaction on this tour, as the Sea Lions love to join us in the water on every trip! You will spend just over an hour in the water, before jumping back on the boat for a warm shower, and a hot toastie to warm you up on your way back to Port Lincoln. The trip returns at 12:30 pm.
