Australian Coastal Safaris Port Lincoln Underwater Weekend Adventure Australian Sealion 3

Wildlife & Ocean Encounter


Adventure and excitement in the water and out

Embark on a unique journey filled with exciting wildlife experiences in some of South Australia's most breathtaking locations. Let Australian Coastal Safaris guide you through the wonders of native wildlife, exploring places like Big Swamp (freshwater) Wetlands, Coffin Bay National Park, Avoid Bay, Mount Dutton Bay Conservation Park, Baird Bay, Port Lincoln National Park, and Mikkira Station.

In addition to observing land-based wildlife and birdlife in their natural settings, you'll have the extraordinary opportunity to spend a captivating day in Baird Bay, swimming alongside Australian sea lions and venturing into deeper waters for an encounter with bottlenose dolphins. These remarkably swift and robust creatures may come so close that you can hear their lively chatter.

Once back on terra firma, be sure to pack your binoculars or camera, as your guide will point out a diverse array of animals and birdlife, many of which are rare, endangered, or vulnerable. The region boasts an astonishing variety of birdlife, including seabirds, shorebirds, songbirds, parrots (including the rare Port Lincoln parrot), and raptors such as osprey and the white-bellied sea eagle. If you have a penchant for oysters, indulge in a cruise with a local Oyster farmer, gaining insights into the cultivation, harvesting, and processing of both fresh Pacific and native angassi oysters. Savor the flavors of these marine delicacies while learning about the intricacies of oyster farming practices.  Undoubtedly, one of the most memorable wildlife encounters awaits at Mikkira Station, where you can get up close with koalas. In an environment of stunted gums, these endearing creatures often perch on tree branches at or just above head height, allowing you to observe them intimately in their natural habitat.
