5 star ratingSpirit of Coorong cruise is highly recommended. The spirit of the Coorong must flow in the veins of the professional, knowledgeable and enthusiastic skipper and crew. I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the 4 hr cruise and learnt about the Coorong's social history, local and migratory bird life, shifting sands and Murray mouth, effects of drought and floods, barrages and modern cockle fishermen . Ample lunch plus tea and biscuits. Easy walks on beaches and on boardwalk through vegetation with talk on its indigenous uses eg insect repellant.

I'd love to repeat this cruise in a different season . Highly recommended .

5 star ratingOne more tick on ther bucket list! We have seen a lot of the world, but had never visited the mouth of our mighty Murray River as we know it. Spirit of the Coorong provided a great tour that kept us interested for the entire six hour tour. Our skipper assisted by two crew looked after our every need including two walks to see the extensive ocean beach, and aboriginal camp relics.

The Murray mouth was a huge surprise to us. To see what is such a small opening to the sea to water from our greatest river rang conservation alarm bells in the mind of this confirmed non-treehugger. There is very little Murray water reaching the ocean, so one may question our capacity as a nation to increase food production in the Murray basin without more available river water.

This cruise company provides a world-class service in a glorious environment. Well done Spirit of the Coorong Cruises.
