Once you arrive at the Port Lincoln Airport, you will be greeted by you’re personal Goin’ Off Safaris guide. After greetings, it’s off to Coffin Bay, just 30 minutes from Port Lincoln. Coffin Bay is an area of outstanding beauty, and is home to not only the world’s best oysters but also a variety of important species of flora and fauna. There are no other comparable systems of bays and inlets in such compact form anywhere on the coast, which is why this area is classified as a maritime wilderness area. We then head out into Coffin Bay National Park, which offers some of the most spectacular coastal scenery in South Australia, ranging from ancient granite, limestone and sandstone cliffs to long beaches bordered by white sand dunes. Framed by the sea, the parks slender peninsula resembles the shape of a giant spur jutting out from the mainland. A place of amazing contrasts, the unprotected side of the peninsula reveals rugged headlands, limestone cliffs and islands shaped by the relentless Southern Ocean and frequent southwesterly winds. In contrast, the leeward side is calm and serene offering a safe swimming beach and great places to walk, fish and canoe. Wildlife is plentiful throughout the 31,000 ha National Park with Western Grey Kangaroos, Emus, Goanna’s and Snakes and Dolphins in the Bays. Claimed as a National Park in 1972, the area was once called the Coffin Bay Run and was used to breed horses. We will be able to throw a line in to see if we can catch the fighting Australian Salmon along one of the beautiful beaches within the park. These are a great fish and fantastic fun to catch as we hunt for the bounty of the day! There are plenty of lookouts for spectacular views; there is an abundant of birdlife (150 different species in the park) and wildlife, 4WDriving tracks as well as a sealed road for more comfortable conditions. If the tides are in our favor, we will also collect cockles (also known as vongole, pippis or clams) at low tide and these are fantastic eating, plentiful and easy to get and a personal favorite. To learn all about the Pacific and the native Angasi Oyster, owner of Pure Oysters Coffin Bay -Chris Hank will give you an hour tour of one of his oyster processing shed. This is a typical shed that contributes to the 60 tonnes of oysters that are trucked out of Coffin Bay every week with Chris explaining and showing you the whole Oyster growing and harvesting process. Fresh out of the rack, you get to sample these oysters as well as seeing all the equipment used to get these oysters into domestic & international markets and to the top restaurants in the world.

You will then be taken to your Ocean View Suites at the new 4.5 star Port Lincoln Hotel, developed by tuna baron Sam Sarin. With the best waterfront rooms including sweeping views of Boston Bay, the hotel offers exceptional service with 24 hour in-house facilities, a swimming pool, gym and with 2 fantastic bars and restaurant, plus entertainment each weekend, your stay here will be very memorable. The evening is yours and there are plenty of options for dinner at Sarins Restaurant, Sharkey’s Bar, the Lounge or utilize the in house room service. Café Del Giorno’s is another great Restaurant close by and there are a number of other options within walking distance to the Port Lincoln Hotel. There is also the option of having a private chef catering for you with the smorgasbord catch of the day.

Come wintertime in June-August, these floors are a rush on as staff is flat out-processing Southern Bluefin Tuna under the direct supervision of Japanese buyers. A terrific insight into the next phase of a Bluefin Tuna life cycle can be seen here as the tuna are processed, packaged and ready to be exported direct to leading restaurants in China, Japan and other parts of Asia and beyond. Labeled as Morituna, owner Steve Moriarty explains the whole process of how locally farmed tuna from Port Lincoln ends up on a plate in the top restaurants around the world.

Our next stop at 11.00am is a hands on tour of the Fresh Fish Factory, where you will have the opportunity to see the full process a fish goes through, from ocean to plate.

A tour of these brand new facilities is available along with a tasting of fresh abalone. On our way back to the airport for departure, it would be incomplete if we did not call into on of the regions best award winning winery for a tasting at the aptly named Boston Bay Winery. The Ford family relocated from Sydney to Port Lincoln and purchased a license to catch wild abalone from the local waters. Coupled with fishing interests, the family set about establishing a vineyard on the shores of Boston Bay following the advice of a friend and the early predictions of the French explorers Nicholas Baudin and Citizen Freycinet who suggested that Boston Bay would be a good place to grow grapes with its Mediterean climate. The winery is now well established with a number of different award winning wines including the beautifully refreshing Boston Bay Sauvignon Blanc; aptly named “The Great White”. Family member Tony Ford is the internationally acclaimed and renowned, comical in house Master- chef.
