5 star ratingFantastic Day Out Just be careful when enquiring with this cruise at the visitors centre. I checked the website out and they had extra cruises during Christmas. When I asked at the Visitors centre they said there was no scheduled cruise for the next day. So just go down to the water and the Spirit of the Coorong has their own office there and they are friendly enough to help you out.

The scenery was lovely. The commentary impressive and the lunch was fantastic! I enjoyed the Aboriginal history and seeing the Lock in action was great. So much to see whilst on this cruise. Highly recommended for all ages.

5 star ratingA great tourist cruise with Qld friends! We had some friends staying from Queensland and went on the Coorong Discovery Cruise on April 7th. The river and bird life we saw were fantastic. We have lived in Goolwa for 6 years and have been meaning to do this cruise ever since. It was made even more enjoyable with Matt's commentary, which was very knowledgeable and he had a very good voice which made everyone want to listen to what he was saying. Paul did an excellent job of supplying us with a lunch of cold meats, cheese and fruit, which was served up in a sealed container for each of us, followed with tea or coffee. Poor guy had to wash 20 mugs up on about three times during the trip!

They were both happy and obliging and obviously liked what they were doing. We had a 20 min guided walk to a beach on the southern ocean and it was breathtaking!

This is a must for all to see!
