5 star ratingExcellent adventure with more fowl and fish to fill in the peace and solitude It seemed to me the idyll for rowing or sailing so it was a no- brainer in choosing the excellent comfort of The Spirit of Coorong cruiser,in our discovery tour of this pristine body of water. Its so clear that it is hard to believe the Coorong is connected to the muddy Murray River. There is a spirit about that infuses into everyone on board.

its great to share in its solitude and peacefulness. Our Captain and host were amicable to the max,fuelled with more interesting facts and in-depth info to create a stimulating and humorous four hour adventure. We saw sandpipers,plovers,egrets,black swans,herons ,ibises,pelicans and the shy pied oyster- catcher as well as The cape barren geese and my favourite the banded stilts. there is a cornucopia of fowl life and fishes everywhere.

Wish i had a line trailing in the water.

5 star ratingA must do for anyone visiting the Fleurieu Peninsula We have recently done the Spirit of Coorong Adventure Cruise, a birthday gift from our family and they couldn't have given us anything better. It is a six hour cruise, leaving from Goolwa, although the day we travelled the cruise left from Mundoo Channel on Hindmarsh Island. The captain, Bain and his mate Mat are very informative and there is almost a non-stop commentary while on board and on the walks through the dunes. We learnt a lot about how the aboriginal people can survive in the bush and what plants and berries are safe to eat. The walks are optional and you are welcome to return to the boat at any time. After one of our walks we were treated to an entrée of freshly cooked Goolwa Cockles, cooked in a wine and garlic sauce and they were delicious. It brought back childhood memories, although then we ate them fresh out of the shells. We had a lunch pack of cold meats and salads served on board and afternoon tea as well. We were surprised to see that china mugs and stainless steel cutlery were their choice. It is so much nicer than drinking tea or coffee from polystyrene and using plastic cutlery. It also helps the environment by not having "throw away" containers etc., The tea and coffee was piping hot too. Cold drinks are available for purchase on the boat and fresh water is available. It is excellent value for money and I believe some of the accommodation places offer a 10% discount voucher on the cruise, making it even better value for money, so if you are staying down that way it pays to enquire with your hosts. We will certainly be recommending this cruise to our family and friends. If you are stuck with ideas for that hard to buy for person who enjoys the outdoors, no better gift than this cruise could be given to them.

5 star ratingCoorong Discovery tour how awesome Have wanted to visit the Coorong for many years and now it is done - maybe needs another visit. The Spirit of Coorong cruises folk were fantastic. Easy to book, the cruise itself was extremely well organised, the crew were knowledgeable and informative and great boat drivers ! Most interesting and best value for money tour we have undertaken for a long time.
