MEDIA RELEASE Thursday 10th August 2017
South Australian ferry company Sea SA Pty Ltd, has announced the temporary suspension of its Spencer Gulf Ferry service, due to construction of the export/import shore side facilities at the Lucky Bay terminal. Services are due to recommence late 2018.
Site safety is of the upmost importance during this construction phase of the export/import shore facilities and with the machinery required for the works, we have therefore been advised that it would be unsafe to have the public onsite.

During this closure, deepening of the Lucky Bay approach channel will also commence and this is expected to take approximately four months to complete.
Our reservations offices at both Wallaroo and Lucky Bay will remain staffed and open from now until recommencement of the service.
Sea SA’s management take this opportunity to thank all of our loyal customers, tourism operators and supporters. We also thank our dedicated vessel crew as well as office staff both at Wallaroo and Lucky Bay, and with their help and we look forward to resuming the service later in 2018.
