What people are saying about Port Lincoln
Calypso Star Charters are extremely well run and organised. Andrew led the team on the day and they were a pleasure to be with. I think we will be be back!!
My brother & his wife were visiting my husband & myself (from Sydney) and so I booked us in for the Port Lincoln Day Tour. We saw the sights of Port Lincoln National Park including beautiful scenery and we then shared a lovely morning tea. We were all elated to observe a number of seals swimming and sun baking Mikkira Station has a large number of koalas in various forms of activity (or not), It was delightful to observe them in their own natural environment Port Lincoln Fish Place, was yummy and we then visited Boston Bay Winery where we all enjoyed the experience of tasting the local drop. Glenn Forest Sanctuary showed us an array of different animals who all seemed to enjoy being hand fed from our seed bags and live in a vast, safe environment. Paul our guide for the day, made us all most welcome and showed our whole tour group nothing but professionalism for the entire day, sharing information and stories related to the area & he also shared his passion of photography.
There was a howling gale and the water was a bit rough but I was surprised at the stability of the boat. It had some sort of gyroscopic device fitted. I did feel sorry for the people who paid all that money and spent the day vomiting. The food menu was a good selection of 'good food' and 'junk food,' so everyone was catered for. I found plenty to eat and it was nicely presented by staff. The TV doco's were a good idea and an interesting pass time on the voyage. Access to the shark cage was easy and relatively safe and there were plenty of trevally and a king fish to look at. The organizers put on a very picturesque sunrise and sunset. They tried their hardest to entice a shark to the boat but fell short in that area. I blame the tuna being cleaned and gutted just up the coast. I enjoyed the extra rough journey back in. Better than a ride at the Royal show. To sum it up as they say, 'A bad day chasing sharks is better than a day at work'. I hope the voucher'is honoured.
