5 star ratingExcellent! Highly recommended. Go now while the birds are there in their thousands. The trip we did on the Spirit of the Coorong runs for six hours on a Sunday. It was fabulous. I booked months in advance and it was full (it's a small boat).

Although cold and windy, we sat upstairs the whole time in order to maximise our view and our bird watching experience. This involved a woolly hat, scarf, gloves and three layers under a thick waterproof jacket which was required when the occasional full face of water was received! It was worth it as we would have seen thousands of birds .. black swans, pelicans, various types of cormorants, waders and birds of prey. Most people sat downstairs where it was warmer and a lot less windy and I reckon they missed out because they didn't have the gear.

The captain was friendly and knowledgeable about the area and the bird life. There were two stops, both fascinating in terms or Indigenous history, landscape and flora and fauna. The views are stunning.

It isn't always like this. A few years ago there were hardly any birds. Now they are there in the thousands and it's a wonderful experience to behold.

Lunch and morning tea is provided .. simple but adequate fare. Lunch is provided in little lunch boxes. My lettuce flew away given that I chose to be outdoors in a gale but it was worth it to see the birds!

5 star ratingSpirit if the Coorong - 6 hour cruise Absolutely FANTASTIC day. The captain and crew were knowledgeable and friendly. I learned lots and loved every single second. Lunch and afternoon tea were provided, both were scrumptious. I could not recommend this trip highly enough. A truly wonderful day. Thank you to the awesome crew.

5 star ratingGreat day out A most interesting and enjoyable tour. All day, including lunch and morning and afternoon tea. Comfortable boat, very informative guides and fascinating walks over the sand hills to historic and indigenous sites. Good bird life and scenery. Some of the older passengers found the going a bit tough in the sand, particularly on the second and longer walk but don't let that stop you. Overall, an excellent experience, suitable for all age groups.
