Sun, 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.
Great day out This was third cruise in as many tears. A great day out with an informative and helpful crew. Lynch and afternoon tea is delicious. Definite value for money.
A cruise in our own backyard A beautiful day on board the Spirit of the Coorong. It was a very hot day and a great experience of going through the Goolwa lock and cruising to areas that are inaccessible by any other means. Loved going through the mouth of the Murray and hearing the history of the movements of this channel. A lovely day seeing many birds, emus and seals. A delicious lunch was served and excellent coffee.
