5 star ratingFantastic! Do yourself a favour and do this cruise. It all started with a lovely friendly lady selling us our ticket at the wharf. Great first impression. We cruised on a Wednesday and the boat had plenty of room. We prefer to sit outside and the view from the upstairs deck was brilliant. We had perfect weather (about 28 degrees) with lovely blue skies (tho it didn't start that way). Bain and Matt were very knowledgable and friendly. We had a running commentary during the cruise slowing/stopping to have a good view of the many birds and hearing about the history of the Murray mouth and surrounding area and its people. The walk to the beach from Barker Knoll was pleasant together with a walk on the beach returning to pippies cooked in white wine, garlic etc. Lots of info about the local tribe of aborigines (Ngarrindjeri). Lunch was provided - ham, corned beef, chicken, coleslaw, macaroni salad, etc, roll, cheese/bickies, after dinner mint. Followed by tea/coffee. After another walk at Cattle Point to a former Ngarrindjeri site (which unfortunately we didn't go on as too hot - do make the effort!!) we had afternoon tea and returned home to Goolwa. We couldn't recommend this highly enough. Worth every cent. Will do again in a couple of years to see the changes in the Murray Mouth.

5 star ratingSpirit of the Coorong Cruise We went on the two hour cruise from Goolwa wharf, on a perfect day of around 28deg and enjoyed it very much. The crew were friendly, helpful and happy to answer questions along with an excellent commentary. Was fascinated to see the Goolwa barrage close up and enjoyed the experience of going through the lock and then down to the mouth of the Murray. The scenery along the way was so beautiful, lovely wetlands with lots of birdlife, some lazy seals and beautiful unspoiled sand dunes. There are also longer cruises available which I’m sure would be well worth taking.
