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 ratingGreat views of the Murray River mouth Having traveled all along the Murray River, we were keen to see where the river meets the Southern Ocean and this 2 hour cruise took us right to the mouth of the river. We traveled through the barrage and saw New Zealand Fur Seals right beside the boat as well as many pelicans, ducks, gulls and some migratory birds. Excellent commentary from the captain as we went along. Great trip and good value for money.

5 star ratingFabbo day out We had relatives over from London when Adelaide had a heat wave of sorts and picked the best day to drive to Goolwa. Easy free parking near the wharf on a weekday. Well organised and interesting tour. Informative commentary that didn't intrude. Cold meat salad lunch and a couple of stops to walk over the dunes to the rugged southern ocean and to the murray mouth. Guide showed us some bush tucker and dug a fresh water "well". Lots of birds, seals lolling on the sea side of the barrage. A great day out. We did the four hour tour, but wouldn't have minded the six hour one. The Coorong is a pristine place that everyone needs to experience.
