5 star rating6 hour cruise on the Coorong We did the 6 hour trip and are so glad we did. The boat trip is relaxing and the walks are interesting and fun. Bain's knowledge of the history of white settlement and the lifestyle of the Ngarrindjeri people, the environmental science, the engineering of the barrages and the wildlife was inexhaustible. Lunch was very healthy, well organised and very tasty. Dan and Bain run a tight ship. They were relaxed and made sure everything ran smoothly. It was incredibly good value for money. Thanks guys and thanks for being so considerate of our son (who has a severe intellectual disability).

5 star ratingLots of birds We had a great time! First time we had ever gone through a lock. Very interesting seeing the dredging at the mouth of the Murray River and where the freshwater of the Murray River meets the saltwater of the Southern Ocean; you can actually see the difference in the water where they meet. Our guide really knew his birds which was great because birdwatching was one of the main reasons we selected this cruise. Beach walks were fun. Lunch was nice.

5 star ratingCockles poached in cream and white wine on pristine beach just one highlight! We joined the full 6 hour Coorong Tour between Xmas and New Year 2013. What a delight the whole day was! Our skipper and "Talking Coorong Encyclopedia" Mat must be the best tour guide I have ever heard and his assistant Dave did a great job of keeping us comfortable fed and watered. Mat presented a mind-boggling amount of information about the area in a relaxed and subtly humorous way. No full on comedy routine disguising a lack of detailed knowledge..just fascinating facts and anecdotes. The variety and diversity of bird-life on show was extraordinary as was Mat's ability to spot and identify even the rarer species. He was clearly also a very polished Boat Captain confident enough to tease us about the unlikely possibility of running aground on one of the ever shifting sandbars. There were too many highlights of the tour to list here but for me the most exciting was our walk through pristine sand dunes to the obvious remains of aboriginal camp sites with their huge piles of discarded cockle shells. As a local from Adelaide I was overwhelmed by the beauty of this previously unvisited wilderness area an hour from my home.
