This is a definite ‘must do’ when at Port Lincoln !! The team at Explore Eyre were tremendous. Pick up from our accomodation was so helpful, Paul our driver was very informative and gave a personal tour. The oyster boat tour was fascinating and delicious- sipping bubbles and looking at the beautiful waters of Coffin Bay. The visit to Almonta Beach was beautiful (we returned there again the next day with the kids!) Lunch at 1802 restaurant was divine. Beautiful wines, coffee and ice cream at Boston Bay Wines and then back to the Old Mill Lookout to end the day. I thoroughly recommend this tour- it impressed us on so many levels. You won’t be disappointed .
