The Eyre Peninsula saw its first cruise ship visit since the COVID 19 pandemic that put the tourism industry on hold.

On Thursday, the Coral Expeditions cruise ship docked at Tumby Bay with up to 40 passengers exploring what the seaside town has to offer.

Visitors took the opportunity to see the local street art, taste some local food and snorkel the diverse waters known for the leafy sea dragons.

The cruise ship was part of a 10-night venture leaving from Adelaide and visited several different regional locations across South Australia including Coffin Bay, Kangaroo Island and Flinders Island.

Following the pandemic, Port Lincoln’s tourism has taken a huge hit this year missing out on more than 20,000 passengers visiting during the summer season.
