Defibrillator Training - Today we have installed defibrillators onto our vessels and further trained our staff, a bit of extra piece of mind when cruising with us into remote areas.

5 star ratingVery informative The two guides on our cruise were very knowledgable and friendly. We learnt a lot about the Murray and have a better understanding of the press about it. The lunch on the cruise was fresh and more than expected. We thoroughly enjoyed everything about the cruise.

5 star ratingCockles poached in cream and white wine on pristine beach just one highlight! We joined the full 6 hour Coorong Tour between Xmas and New Year 2013. What a delight the whole day was! Our skipper and "Talking Coorong Encyclopedia" Mat must be the best tour guide I have ever heard and his assistant Dave did a great job of keeping us comfortable fed and watered. Mat presented a mind-boggling amount of information about the area in a relaxed and subtly humorous way. No full on comedy routine disguising a lack of detailed knowledge..just fascinating facts and anecdotes. The variety and diversity of bird-life on show was extraordinary as was Mat's ability to spot and identify even the rarer species. He was clearly also a very polished Boat Captain confident enough to tease us about the unlikely possibility of running aground on one of the ever shifting sandbars. There were too many highlights of the tour to list here but for me the most exciting was our walk through pristine sand dunes to the obvious remains of aboriginal camp sites with their huge piles of discarded cockle shells. As a local from Adelaide I was overwhelmed by the beauty of this previously unvisited wilderness area an hour from my home.

5 star ratingLovely birds and seals We had wonderful views on walk. There are thousands birds families beside the water. A group of seals enjoy the sunshine on the wood.

The lunch was perfect.
