TripAdvisor Reviews

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 ratingCoorong Adventure On a potentially uncomfortably warm day we headed off in the light and airy boat Spirit of Coorong. Fresh air kept us comfortably cool in the inside seating - we did not venture onto the upper outside viewing platform.

Bain and Dave the two friendly crew members on duty entertained us with commentary throughout the day- humorous, informative and answering all the questions put to them.

We had two guided walks through the steep sand dunes, one to the ocean and one to an Aboriginal midden site. The walks provided a fascinating insite into how the dune system works and constantly changes; bush craft and survival skills, together with great insight into the Aboriginal way of life in an area of abundant food and water - if one knows how to find it! Feasting on freshly cooked cockles on our return from the first walk was indeed a treat - has Bain entered for Master Chef yet?!!! Lunch and afternoon tea were more than we had expected and a delicious addition to the day.

We cannot recommend this cruise more highly. We shall do it again.

5 star ratingCoorong cruise is tops My wife and I have just finished a day trip along the Coorong in South Australia. It was a wonderful day with lots of bird life, seals, Murray Mouth, local fishermen, lakeside communities and spectacular coastal scenery. The commentary on the boat was very informative and people who run the boat were most accommodating. The lunch was more than acceptable. A taste of Goolwa cockles cooked in wine and cream was delightful. The two walks into the dunes opened up more wide sky views and the information passed on by the leaders added greatly to the experience. Digging for water in the sand hills was an eye opener.

Highly recommended.
