Embark on a journey to Althorpe Island, located 4.5 nautical miles from the mainland. With a significant maritime history, the island is home to several state heritage-listed structures, multiple shipwrecks, and graves.

The tour showcases the stunning scenery and abundant wildlife, including the Australian Sea Lion, various sea birds, and marine life. Leisurely cruise around the island, taking in the impressive views before returning to the mainland. Along the way, you will also pass the Eastern Osprey nest, where you might catch a glimpse of these magnificent birds of prey. Keep your eyes peeled for the White Bellied Sea Eagles that nest on nearby Middle Island, too!

The Yorke Peninsula is the traditional lands of the Narungga (Nharangga) people, who have lived on, and cared for, this country since the beginning of time. We work, live and travel on Nharannga Banggara [Country], and we take time away from those pursuits to acknowledge and pay our deep respects to the Nharangga Elders of the past and present. 

Today, it is essential that we continue to care for and protect our spectacular natural environment. Tread lightly and leave no trace. Learn more about responsible and respectful travel on Yorke Peninsula.
