Flying in a tiny four-seater plane, the Buchanan Group arrived in Coffin Bay for their 4 day tailored Hunt & Gather Safari.
Shortly after arrival in stunning Coffin Bay, we laid on a seafood extravaganza for our guests while they sipped local wines, overlooking the sunset from their private balcony. After a feast of natural and Kilpatrick oysters and fresh caught green-lip abalone, it was time to turn in in preparation for a big day of fishing and exploring on day two.
The morning began with Gary at GT Charters, where our avid fishermen tried their luck fishing for the tasty table fish, King George Whiting. Catching enough for a decent feed for all aboard, it was a fresh seafood dinner for the second night in a row.
After such a jam-packed morning, we picked up our fabulous four and ventured out for a relaxing afternoon cruising the Coffin Bay National Park. With superb weather conditions at Avoid Bay and Almonta Beach we stretched our legs with a walk along the beach, followed by a beer stop at calm and tranquil Yangi Bay on the other side of the peninsula.
After a sleep-in on day two, we picked up our group of adventurers and made our way into Port Lincoln for another day of exploration. After almost being blown off Winter’s Hill lookout, a quick coffee in the sun on the foreshore and witnessing the unloading of thousands upon thousands of pilchards down at the wharf, we ventured to the historic Axel Stenross Maritime Museum.
The afternoon was highlighted by a trip out to a farmed tuna cage with Adventure Bay. The chance to swim with and hand feed these amazingly fast fish was a spectacle for the group, with 3 of the 4 braving the chilly water!
The final action packed day involved a trip out to our front yard, showing off some of the most pristine beaches and cliff tops along the coast. We even threw a line in off the beach, reeling in a tasty Flathead (Congratulations Carol!)
Unfortunately at the end of 4 days of spectacular weather and adventures, our lovely guests had to leave us and continue their journey across the country towards Esperance.
