Spirit of the Coorong Cruises offer 2 hour, 3.5 hour, and 6 hour cruises from Goolwa, 90 kilometres south of Adelaide, South Australia, to the River Murray Mouth and into the Coorong National Park. We do scale down to a Winter Schedule during the months of June, July, August & September - however our 3.5 hour and 6 hour cruises continue to run weekly all year round.

We travelled on the lunch/afternoon cruise on 25th August this year and were completely taken aback at the professionalism of the two fantastic crew members . Mike the skipper and Lochie the deck hand and tour guide extraordinaire for our sand dune walk across to the ocean, were two of the greatest guys you would wish to meet. Helpful, courteous, knowledgeable and friendly it was such a joy to travel with them. The meals and afternoon teas provided were truly fantastic. The lunch was generous and so very tasty and I must congratulate the caterers who provided such an enjoyable meal. Again Lochie handle his duties in this area with aplomb and efficiency. It was fun to watch him and his routine for doing things. Mike is a wealth of local knowledge and was always on the lookout for unusual bird life and quick to point out rare sightings. His knowledge of the river and river craft is second to none and to listen to his explanation of items of interest was most educational. His maritime skills were also on display as we negotiated the lock at the Goolwa barrage and into the Murray River mouth. An added bonus was the citing of an adult male emu and 8 chicks roaming the sand dunes on our nature walk with Lochie. A fantastic afternoon cruising the Coorong and the Murray River. Thank you to all concerned. Could not recommend this more highly.
