Half an hour down the road from Port Lincoln is Coffin Bay, a place synonymous with seafood. Jump on board an oyster boat, then chug out to the beautiful waters of Coffin Bay National Park. See how oysters are grown, pick up some tricks of the trade, then devour what are arguably the best oysters in the world, plucked straight from the sea with Experience Coffin Bay. If you'd rather stay on land, you can dig into world famous Eyre Peninsula oysters and local wine at Oyster Farm Tours, right on the foreshore.

Afterwards, throw on your bathers and head out to explore the Coffin Bay National Park, where sand dunes meet azure blue waters brimming with sea life.

Explore the talia caves

Peer out at the wild ocean from the Woolshed Cave - a huge cavern set deep in a granite cliff, formed by pounding waves over thousands of years. Just steps away lies The Tub, a large crater that is connected to the sea by an underground tunnel. Venture further and you'll encounter dramatic cliffs that offer some seriously amazing views to the south along Talia Beach.

Swim with sea lions

Further down the trail in Baird Bay is where you can squeeze into a wet suit, slap on a snorkel spend the morning meeting and greeting playful sea lions and lightning-fast dolphins. The more active you are, the more they’ll want to play; duck, dive, roll and race – just don’t expect to be the star of the show. Book in your swimming lessons from sea lions or frolic with a pod of 25 resident dolphins with Baird Bay Ocean Eco Experience.
