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 ratingA Great Day Out Five of us (3 locals; 2 from UK) had a great time on the boat and on the walk to the ocean. The two guys were friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. We couldn't fault a thing. Thank you

5 star ratingA great adventure I did the long adventure and loved it. Plenty of birds and history from the skipper. The boat was clean and the crew was helpful.
