Port Lincoln is a popular destination for cruise ships. The cruise ship season runs from October to April with the number of ships visiting Port Lincoln varying year to year.

With each ship visit there can be up to 3000 passengers and 1000 crew that disembark and visit the city. These large numbers of visitors significantly increase the number of people in the CBD, which is positively managed with the wonderful assistance of our Cruise Ship Volunteers. 

In previous years Port Lincoln has received accolades as being voted as best port by passengers according to South Australian Tourism Commission market research. The number of Cruise Ships to visit Port Lincoln continues to increase with fourteen cruise ships visiting our shores in the 2018/2019 summer season. Many of the same cruise ships will return with a couple of new ones to visit for the first time.

A free shuttle bus service is available for passengers on the day from the terminal into the centre of town and back to the boat, or is a 5 minute walk along our beautiful foreshore. There is also plenty of things to see and do to enjoy our picturesque city.
