5 star ratingAbsolutely wonderful! My husband and I enjoyed every aspect of this day. We decided to do the 6 hour cruise so that we saw the whole area. Seeing the barrages, fur seals, Mouth of the mighty Murray River, birds and the Coorong peninsular was awesome. Walking over the sand dunes to the ocean and seeing the only home out there was well worth the effort.

Food and commentary were exceptional.

5 star ratingArmchair exploration of the Coorong I have wanted to explore the Coorong for a long time but never considered that it could be done with such comfort. The Spirit of the Coorong is a very comfortable boat with inside/ outside options including top deck for great views. The skipper/chef is very knowledgeable as is the guide for the two ( optional) walks. I certainly learnt a wealth of information

I learnt a lot about the history of the Coorong, both natural and historical with plenty of photo opportunities including the bird life and the fur seals. As the Murray River is in flood we got to see the flood gates on the various barrages working as a bonus. The freshly cooked cockles cooked by the skipper while we were on a shore walk were a tasty and unusual entree to our lunch of cold meat selection with fresh salads with cheese and crackers. all up a great way to spend six hours and thank you to Blaine and Dave for a sharing so much information and looking after your passengers so thoughtfully. Tip - Make sure you apply plenty of insect repellent before the first walk! no insects on second walk.

5 star ratingFantastic family experience Although we were worried that the 6hr coorong Adventure cruise would be too long for our 9 and 7 year olds we decided to give it a go and we are SO glad we did. The cruise was absolutely lovely, amazing scenery, very informative commentary and a delicious lunch all in very comfortable surrounds. We all learnt so much about the ecology, birdlife and history of the area which added so much to the experience. Matt's commentary on the birdlife really struck a chord with our girls and on a return trip to the Murray mouth they took great delight in pointing out the tiny migratory birds from Siberia to their cousins. My highlight?? The delicious cockles cooked up there on the shore. We gad a great time a few days later cooking up a New Year's Eve feast of cockles collected from Goolwa and trying to replicate Matt's recipe (with great success!) I will never see Cockles just as bait ever again! Fabulous trip and we highly recommend it.
