GIFT VOUCHERS AVAILABLE ON ALL CRUISES! THE PERFECT PRESENT

We are very proud to announce that we received a SILVER medal in the Tour & Transport Operators Category at the 2016 SA Tourism Awards.

A big thank you to everyone who has helped us to achieve our medal.

Without Spirit Australia Cruises – Spirit of the Coorong owners, captains, crew, and staff’s dedication, persistence and amount of effort we would not have our amazing cruise products.

Without the support of all those who have experienced our Cruises, we couldn’t have got this far.

TripAdvisor Reviews

5 star ratingSun, sand, water and nature. A friend had recommended this cruise. Five years later, I finally got to verify their recommendation. Mixed into the relaxing cruise and nature experience was some significant learning about our dynamic Coorong. Our hosts, Bain and Dave were well organised, knowledgeable and presented their commentary in an easy listening and informative way. The commentary included aspects of the changing nature of the Coorong, the barrages, birdlife, fishing, industry, buildings and an insight into traditional Ngarrindjeri life. The day included two easy walks: one at Barker's Knoll across to the Southern Ocean and one at Cattle Point. I would definitely recommend being vigilant with the bug spray (provided) as the flies and mosquitoes were horrendous on the first walk. There was an abundance of local bird life but the migratory birds normally seen at this time of year were scarce. The six hour trip, including lunch and snacks was definitely excellent value. I certainly feel more informed about the Coorong thanks to this experience.

5 star ratingArmchair exploration of the Coorong I have wanted to explore the Coorong for a long time but never considered that it could be done with such comfort. The Spirit of the Coorong is a very comfortable boat with inside/ outside options including top deck for great views. The skipper/chef is very knowledgeable as is the guide for the two ( optional) walks. I certainly learnt a wealth of information

I learnt a lot about the history of the Coorong, both natural and historical with plenty of photo opportunities including the bird life and the fur seals. As the Murray River is in flood we got to see the flood gates on the various barrages working as a bonus. The freshly cooked cockles cooked by the skipper while we were on a shore walk were a tasty and unusual entree to our lunch of cold meat selection with fresh salads with cheese and crackers. all up a great way to spend six hours and thank you to Blaine and Dave for a sharing so much information and looking after your passengers so thoughtfully. Tip - Make sure you apply plenty of insect repellent before the first walk! no insects on second walk.
