What to expect
All departures are from the Adventure Bay Charters departure lounge located in the Port Lincoln Marina, at 2 South Quay Boulevard. Passengers are welcome to meet here for complimentary tea & coffee and pre-departure checks from 7:30 am and must be ready to board the vessel by 8 am. Once we depart the Marina, the boat cruises along the edge of the Port Lincoln National Park to Hopkins Island located 1.5 hours from town. We serve a selection of fresh fruit, muffins along with a choice of tea, coffee and hot chocolate on the way. Once our crew has fitted you out in a full wet-suit, mask, snorkel, and flippers and you will be able to join the playful Sea Lions in the water, or if you would prefer you are welcome to observe all the action from the boat. We are lucky to be able to guarantee interaction on this tour, as the Sea Lions love to join us in the water on every trip! You will spend just over an hour in the water, before jumping back on the boat for a warm shower, and a hot toastie to warm you up on your way back to Port Lincoln. The trip returns at 12:30 pm.

Jul 2021 • Couples
This was one of the most incredible experiences I've ever had! The tour operators were very knowledgeable, helpful & passionate about what they do. To be able to swim & interact so closely with these amazing creatures in their natural environment is something that you can't describe in words so just go & do it!

Perfect Private Charter
Jan 2021
Isn’t it funny how sometimes you know you are living the moment that you’ll never forget? I had this exact thought on the 16th of January on the back deck of the Adventure Lady, standing surrounded by my family and best friends, looking out over the white sandy beaches of Blythe Island, watching Sea Lions frolic in the ocean, like they were waving goodbye. I quietly smiled to myself, and in that moment, I knew, I will never forget.

To explain, in January of 2021 I had the pleasure and privilege of privately chartering the Adventure Lady for my 21st birthday celebrations. From start to finish, it was perfect.

From checking in in the office to stepping off the boat the staff were incredible, I have so much respect for what they do.

The crew, Daniel, Sophie, Kelsi and Daisy, were stand out. They were all so happy I don’t think I saw them not smiling. They made sure everyone was comfortable, safe and having a good time. With their expert Marine Biology knowledge, the crew educated us on the Sea Lions and marine environment, even explaining how we could do things in our everyday lives to protect the beautiful creatures. I am so thankful to them for all that they did for me and for us, I and all my guests had an unforgettable experience.

The interaction with the Sea Lions was phenomenal. We had two main groups that were playing around, and they were brave enough to swim directly in front of us. We got some amazing footage on our own cameras, and the crew took some great pictures of us as well!

I am so grateful to Adventure Bay Charters, the crew and the Sea Lions for making our experience the best birthday I could have every asked for. I find myself talking about my experience so much. I could not more highly recommend booking with Adventure Bay Charters. You won’t regret it!

Hi Grace Thank you for your 5 star review. A private charter will be the best way to interact with our sea puppies without interruption, the whole area just for you. As a wildlife tour operator, we always try to show our passengers the best wildlife interaction and but in a way that will minimise human impact. That is why we have 4 different islands to go, and our sea puppies will have enough time to rest after play with us. In fact, Australian Sea Lions are endangered animals, there are only 6500 individuals in the whole world and 85% of them are live in South Australia water. To see them in their own habitat and swim with them is the actual privilege. How lucky we are. Thanks again for sharing your experience with us and others, looking forward to seeing you next time! Kind regards, Ben

Great morning experience swimming with Sea lions
Had a great morning thanks to a well equipped boat and friendly informative staff who made sure everyone was ok. Sea lions were beautiful and thanks to our brief training on what to not do and do there was a lot of fun interaction. Very happy to recommend.

Swimming with Sea Lions
Apr 2021
I had an awesome time with Adventure Bay Charters on the Swim with Sea Lions tour. All staff were professional, knowledgeable, very approachable and friendly. We were treated to muffins, fruit, cheese and ham toasties and tea/coffee/hot chocolate which were all delicious.
Staff kitted us out with a wetsuit, fins and snorkel and mask which were all in excellent condition. Only problem I found was the wetsuit was slightly damp which made it even more difficult to get on than they normally are :)
We saw plenty of sea lions and I was lucky enough to have several swimming around and diving beneath me for quite a long time. The water was actually a nice temperature too which was a bonus!
The only downside was the water was a bit murky due to recent storm activity but that is beyond anyone's control.
All in all, a fantastic experience.

Thank you for your 5 star review! I am glad you had a great day onboard our Swim with Sea Lion Tour! Apologies you had dealt with a slightly damp wetsuit, we throughly wash these after a tour and leave out to dry overnight - so at times they can be a damp first thing in the morning. The weather clarity does vary everyday, like you said it can depend on the conditions from previous days. Overall, I hope you still had an amazing day! Thank you for choosing ABC!

THE HEART AND SOUL OF PORT LINCOLN IS ADVENTURE BAY CHARTERS!
Apr 2021 • Solo
THIS IS AN ABSOLUTE MUST DO IN PORT LINCOLN!
I have been travelling on and off for 15 years, and I have never come across a more remarkable group of individuals than Adventure Bay Charters.
From the onset, you are treated more like family than a customer (or guest). Checking in is so very stream lined and effortless, with Tea and Coffee available before you head out. Main shop is very clean with a great range of merchandise available.
Once you board the boat, the beautiful and awesome staff will advise where you are going for the day ahead. Kwells and sea band bracelets advisable as the waters can get pretty rugged out there. Plenty of snacks on board which is great.
Once suited up, your in the water, and it's not long (took me 90 seconds) to start seeing sea lions GAME ON!!!
The staff and management of Adventure Bay Charters are truly the heart and soul of Port Lincoln.
To the amazing beautiful legendary crew, Thankyou so very much for the most awesome day, and I will certainly be back in PLN, and be doing it all again at Adventure Bay

Incredible Experience!
I did the swim with the sea lions today and it was absolutely incredible! My young family didn't want to join me so I hesitant to do it on my own but I'm sooooo glad I did! The crew members were so friendly and helpful! The sea lions were also super friendly, as soon as we stopped they jumped in the water to greet us and I spent a glorious one and a half hours twirling and whirling amongst them! I didn't bring my small children however I noticed others on board did and the staff were so good with them, they had a big floatation device for the kids, I even seen one staff member swimming with a little one on her back!
5 stars for both crew members and the sea lions!
Thank you for helping me tick one off the bucket list!!
