Sail on the Shotover, of course. What better way to view the bay's incredible marine life (dugongs, dolphins, turtles, sharks) than from our 60 foot catamaran?! But that's not all the area has to offer. Walk along Shell Beach, where millions of tiny white cockle shells have been deposited in layers so deep and so thick that they were once used as building blocks! Visit the 1000 year-old stromatolites , blue-green algae similar to the earliest life-forms which dominated the earth 3500 million years ago, and produced the oxygen in the atmosphere which allowed air-breathing animals to evolve. Take a 4WD trip to Francois Peron National Park to see the historic homestead and soak in the hot (44 degrees!!) artesian bore water. And, take a trip to Dirk Hartog Island, to see where Europeans first landed on Australian soil back in 1616.
