5 star ratingPeaceful & informative. Three and a half hours exploring parts of the coorong, including the Murray mouth. Skippered by a very informative "captain", ably assisted by a friendly knowledgable crew and served a delicious lunch ( mine was gluten free) we had a wonderful time. Learnt a bit about the history and the plant life of the area. The guided walked enabled those that want to to stretch their legs, whilst having a paddle searching for pippies (cockles). Got off the boat feeling extremely relaxed. Highly recommend if you are in the Goolwa area.

5 star ratingBrilliant Coorong experience We took the 6-hour Discovery Cruise. This was SUCH an interesting and enjoyable cruise, we can't imagine how it could be any better. We saw hundreds of pelicans, terns, geese, ducks, red-necked avocets and other waders, and dozens of seals. We walked across sand dunes to the beach on the southern ocean, ate the most delicious cockles ever, learned about the Aboriginal history and recent changes to the Coorong, and even poked our noses out the mouth of the mighty Murray River. The boat is perfectly designed and very comfortable, the crew and commentary are the best we've encountered, and lunch was generous and delicious. Highly recommend!

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.
