5 star ratingFabulous Day We celebrated a friend's birthday aboard and enjoyed a nice lunch which included native plants we tasted walking through the sand dunes! , Our host was excellent.

We learned so much about the area including history , wonderful bird life and enjoyed the relaxed life- style of the seals at barrage.

5 star ratingSun, sand, water and nature. A friend had recommended this cruise. Five years later, I finally got to verify their recommendation. Mixed into the relaxing cruise and nature experience was some significant learning about our dynamic Coorong. Our hosts, Bain and Dave were well organised, knowledgeable and presented their commentary in an easy listening and informative way. The commentary included aspects of the changing nature of the Coorong, the barrages, birdlife, fishing, industry, buildings and an insight into traditional Ngarrindjeri life. The day included two easy walks: one at Barker's Knoll across to the Southern Ocean and one at Cattle Point. I would definitely recommend being vigilant with the bug spray (provided) as the flies and mosquitoes were horrendous on the first walk. There was an abundance of local bird life but the migratory birds normally seen at this time of year were scarce. The six hour trip, including lunch and snacks was definitely excellent value. I certainly feel more informed about the Coorong thanks to this experience.

5 star ratingWonderful cruise into the historic Coorong A wonderful cruise along the Murray River, passing through a lock, seeing seals, black swans, pelicans and other birds. It was the real "Storm Boy" country. It was exciting hearing the history of the early days and how important the river was for transport and ship building. The boat took us to the mouth of the Murray River Wow! and along the Coorong with its sand dunes and scrubby vegetation. Lunch was delicious. Highly recommended.
