TripAdvisor Reviews

5 star ratingThe mighty Murray Went twice in the past month on the afternoon cruise to the Murray mouth and into the Coorong. Exceptionally interesting commentary from the Skipper and crew. Lots of birds to see and a worthwhile trek across the dunes to the beach where, looking due south, you're 5000+ km from Antartica!

Good value including an acceptable lunch. Great for locals as well as visiting tourists!

5 star ratingCruising the Coorong from Goolwa, S.A. All day boat cruise of the Coorong, including beautiful picnic lunch on board. Passed the mouth of the Murray, locks and dredges necessary to control freshwater flow out to sea..

5 star ratingFantastic! Do yourself a favour and do this cruise. It all started with a lovely friendly lady selling us our ticket at the wharf. Great first impression. We cruised on a Wednesday and the boat had plenty of room. We prefer to sit outside and the view from the upstairs deck was brilliant. We had perfect weather (about 28 degrees) with lovely blue skies (tho it didn't start that way). Bain and Matt were very knowledgable and friendly. We had a running commentary during the cruise slowing/stopping to have a good view of the many birds and hearing about the history of the Murray mouth and surrounding area and its people. The walk to the beach from Barker Knoll was pleasant together with a walk on the beach returning to pippies cooked in white wine, garlic etc. Lots of info about the local tribe of aborigines (Ngarrindjeri). Lunch was provided - ham, corned beef, chicken, coleslaw, macaroni salad, etc, roll, cheese/bickies, after dinner mint. Followed by tea/coffee. After another walk at Cattle Point to a former Ngarrindjeri site (which unfortunately we didn't go on as too hot - do make the effort!!) we had afternoon tea and returned home to Goolwa. We couldn't recommend this highly enough. Worth every cent. Will do again in a couple of years to see the changes in the Murray Mouth.
