5 star ratingExcellent experience $84 pp for a four hour guided tour from lovely Goolwa to the mouth of he mighty Murray River. Boat holds up to about 50 though there were 22 when we went. 4 hours, very nice cold lunch, and informative, genuine and friendly guides made this trip a great experience. It includes two stop offs at the mouth and down the beach a way for a 15 minute walk to the Southern ocean beachfront. Plenty of friendly wildlife, plenty of stories, great scenery, but beware plenty of flies or mossies at the second stop (Mosquito Bay) so take repellant or better still a fly veil. Overall great trip, great value and highly recommended. If you are less mobile you can still get the experience with less of the walk. Still it is pretty low key.

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.
