Pleasant, informative and most enjoyable My wife and I had a great time on the 4 and a half hour cruise to The Coorong. It was a beautiful day and the scenery was fantastic. Our guide was clearly very well informed and provided an interesting education on the history, geography and biology of the place. We were well looked after. Highly recommended.
A fantastic family day out What an excellent day out. When hubby first suggested it l was a little unsure due to $$$ and with two children aged 8 and 9 who are very active didn't think they would sit still long enough to enjoy it. But how wrong was l. We got to sit outside up the top, and got to see all the action. We saw seals, various birds, even had a check-list where the kids could tick off the birds we had seen, so they were eagerly looking for bird to tick off the list. We loved getting off and following our guide on a walk to find cockle shells, the kids had a ball learning how to find them on the edge of the see (mum was a little nervous though), and learning about which plants are what and what is edible. Lunch was a real treat, cold meats and salads (the kids loved it), and brought out in cute little Tupperware type containers with the food in different sections, made it a lot easier to eat outside where it was windy. The kids enjoyed the walk to look at shells and loved digging in the sand to look for water. It was a brilliant 6 hours and well worth the money, even the kids did not squabble with each other once in the 6 hours... which is a common occurrence a lot lately.... so that is saying a lot... Only thing l would say is put on plenty of sunscreen and reapply it, a few of us got burnt... A terrific day out and if you have children they will really enjoy it and can learn a lot.
Magnificent Wildlife We did the 6 hour Adventure Cruise which took us down the Younghusband Peninsula. Seals were frolicking at the Goolwa Barrage. We saw Emus, Pelicans, Cormorants, Swans and Pied Oyster Catchers. Being Spring, everything was coming to life. There was good water flow around the mouth of the River Murray - a welcome sight after years of drought. We had two walks through sandhills - one to the ocean and another to an Aboriginal midden. Be prepared for a little exercise to get through some deep sandy patches. Lunch on board the vessel was a nice assortment of cold meats and salads presented in our own container. The commentary was very informative and the Captain and staff looked after the group very well.
