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 ratingEnvironment at its Best We booked for the 6 hour Spirit of the Coorong cruise. Unfortunately we became sick on the morning. We rang the office and they were so helpful and allowed us to book for another day. They were so helpful and I doubt if we would have received this help anywhere. We had a great day to do the tour and it was fantastic . Our Captain Bain and Dave were superb . To gently cruise down a pristine, eco system which matches any thing in the world was a wonderful experience. The birdlife and great scenery was only matched by the great knowledgeable commentary which delivered a great pride in this world standard area . The lunch was fantastic and every one was well catered for. The cruise was well worth the money and I highly recommend it to anyone in the world. A 'must do' experience and if everyone did it we might get a lot more people respecting our great environment instead of destroying it.

5 star ratingInformative 3 hour cruise. Was looking forward to the Spirit of the Coorong Cruise and was not disappointed. Daniel the Captain and Dave who took us for the walk on the Younghusband Peninsula over the sand dunes to the Southern ocean and his knowledge of the local fauna was so interesting. We saw Emu's and so much birdlife it was amazing travelling through the lock where seals and pelicans abound it really made the tour fun. A lovely lunch and afternoon tea topped off a lovely afternoon.
