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 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.
