5 star ratingCoorong cruise is tops My wife and I have just finished a day trip along the Coorong in South Australia. It was a wonderful day with lots of bird life, seals, Murray Mouth, local fishermen, lakeside communities and spectacular coastal scenery. The commentary on the boat was very informative and people who run the boat were most accommodating. The lunch was more than acceptable. A taste of Goolwa cockles cooked in wine and cream was delightful. The two walks into the dunes opened up more wide sky views and the information passed on by the leaders added greatly to the experience. Digging for water in the sand hills was an eye opener.

Highly recommended.

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 ratingPleasant, informative and most enjoyable My wife and I had a great time on the 4 and a half hour cruise to The Coorong. It was a beautiful day and the scenery was fantastic. Our guide was clearly very well informed and provided an interesting education on the history, geography and biology of the place.

We were well looked after. Highly recommended.
