Great Day on the Water learning interesting facts Booked the full day Adventure Cruise and our Guides Blair (?) and Dave were great Guides and passionate to share their information about of the Murray and Cooroy Rivers and National Park. Even the boat was nearly full, it never felt like it. From the history of Goolwa and other coastal Harbours to the building of the barrages, right into the mouth of the Murray River with its dredges. A sample of freshly cooked Cockles was provided as well as visiting Indigenous sites and finding Bush Tucker. To top it off, lots of native Birds and our Guides were happy to point them out and give information about them. Highly recommended and informative.
Couldn't got a better day!!! Right from the start, everyone was helpful and friendly. Bain and Dave were fantastic guides, very knowledgable and helpful. The 2 walks were interesting and informative, lunch was great, as was afternoon tea. Would highly recommend this trip - we are local people and found it a great way to understand the lower lake and Murray Mouth set ups.
Gippsland Lakes cruise Three members of my family (including my wife and mother-in-law) have just done a terrific cruise with Jock, Brian and Chris on the Gippsland Lakes from Sale to Lakes Entrance. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience of being able to explore this area 'from the water'. Jock's commentary was excellent and if we did have any questions, all 3 gentlemen were always approachable/helpful. There were numerous stops along the way where we could get off the boat for a bit to stretch our legs and have a look around. Our accommodation for 3 nights at Mariners Cove in Paynesville was excellent and it was particularly convenient not having to pack your bags for those 3 days as we were coming back to stay at the same place overnight after cruising to new places during the day. This is our second cruise with Spirit of the Coorong cruises in just over 3 months and we rate both of them very highly.
