An unforgottable experience We did not book in advance but with efforts of the friendly lady we were booked on the 4,5 hours tour.Although it was a quite windy we sat outside on the upper deck and we had the most wonderful experience. The lock was packed with seals and there were pleanty of sea birds; swans with ducklings, pelicans, herons and a lot of birds I do not know.The captain, who understood quite some Durch, was very knowledgeable about the area. Mat was a lovely host and very helful during the walk in the dunes. Above of this he could reveal the most wonderful smile when his picture was taken.Summarized an unforgottable experience, very recommendable!One advise, take some repellent with you because the mosquitoes are a little bit too "friendly" when you are walking in the dunes.
Armchair 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 informationI 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.
Extremely interesting Did the 6 hour cruise and loved every minute of it. The commentary was so interesting and never waned. Walking around the midden site was the highlight of the day and also really enjoyed our lunch onboard. Highly recommended.
