Sea SA car & passenger ferry - Sea Coast to Coast
Sea SA Pty Lty began operations in December 2006 as the first ferry service across the Spencer Gulf, west of Adelaide, linking the Yorke Peninsula at Wallaroo with the Eyre Peninsula at Lucky Bay, near Cowell.
Many attempts had been made previously to establish such as a service. In 1958 a hovercraft had been proposed but did not eventuate. After more than 3 years of pre-planning, Sea SA was approved by the South Australian government in early 2006. Construction of basic interim terminal facilities commenced in August 2006, providing ticket offices and Visitor Information facilities on both sides plus a cafe at Lucky Bay.
Sea SA was officially opened on 18th December 2006 by the Minister for Tourism and Education, The Honourable Jane Lomax-Smith MP, on the Wallaroo (Yorke Peninsula) side, and by the District Council of Franklin Harbour Chairman, Councillor Eddie Elleway, on the Lucky Bay (Eyre Peninsula) side.
Sea SA is proud to have achieved the 2006 annual AUSMEPA (Australian Marine Environment Protection Association) award for its potential to save more than 25,000 tonnes of carbon emissions annually from road traffic by providing a cross-Gulf alternative to the lengthy round-Gulf car trip.
