5 star ratingWOW !! WOW !! WOW ! My elderly father and his brother, who was visiting from the UK, received a couple of vouchers for the Spirit of the Coorong. They set sail 3 days before my uncle was set to return home. They both had the most amazing afternoon on this trip. The experience was educational with expert commentary from the captain. The scenery, wildlife and general adventure was breathtaking. Both have not stopped talking about it and both grateful for such a wonderful afternoon as this will be the last time they will see each other. Thank you for offering a wonderful experience to 2 old cronies - Thank You !!!

5 star ratingWonderful day cruise We have been to Victor Harbour many times but had not taken a Coorong cruise before. A neighbour suggested taking the day cruise and as we were fortunate enough to be there at the right time we decided to give up our sleep-in time and brave the cold to go on the cruise. Preparing ourselves for a cold day we set off from McCracken Country Club to the Goolwa Wharf to board the Spirit of the Coorong and settle for the cruise. The Captain, Bain and his offsider were very friendly and efficient in their handling of the boat and extremely knowledgeable about the area, bird species in the area and the local indigenous people. We had a delicious cold lunch and later afternoon tea (morning tea not usually provided but as there were not many of us it was). The side trips were spectacular and very informative. All in all we had a great 6 hours and would thoroughly recommend this to all visiting this area. A great way to spend the day and great value for money.

5 star ratingWonderful Cruise The guys who operated our cruise were so friendly and competent! They made the cruise extremely interesting and a great experience. Their knowledge of the Coorong environment and nature was encyclopaedic and their patter was interesting and most educational.

The 4 hr cruise was over before we realised. The birdlife, views of the Murray River mouth, the beaches, the barrages, the mix of salt and sea water were all fascinating.

The cruise was very well organised and the lunch provided on board was also very well managed and presented.

All in all a good experience and good value for money.
