Port Lincoln and Surrounds

This section of Spencer Gulf is an excellent cruising ground with many safe and scenic anchorages all within easy reach of the town of Port Lincoln. Shelter is available for any wind direction, and if severe weather threatens, refuge in the Lincoln Cove Marina is available.

Port Lincoln is a very large and prosperous regional town, and the centre for a major fishing and fish farming industry. Excellent marine services are available, and every supply requirement a cruising yacht could wish for can be found there.

Most cruising yachts take at least three comfortable day sails to get to this area from Adelaide, and once there the cruising is most enjoyable.

Note that a number of anchorages listed here are in the Lincoln National Park, and the restrictions which apply may found on this website https://www.parks.sa.gov.au/find-a-park/Browse_by_region/Eyre_Peninsula/lincoln-national-park
