Great way to spend an afternoon As a spur of the moment decision to take this cruise, we were thrilled we did. By chance there were only 6 of us so it was like a private charter! The commentary was informative & interesting without being dull. We got to see seals up close at the lock & there were plenty of birds along the way. The short excursion on foot through the dunes to the ocean, added that bit extra to an altogether enjoyable afternoon. Highly recommended!
Great way to spend the day We took the 3.5 hour cruise on a fine sunny day last week and thoroughly enjoyed it. The guides were very knowledgeable and presented the information in a way that was easy to grasp without the corny jokes so many guides seem to think we enjoy. The trip through the lock was something new to us and we loved seeing the seals frolicking and so many birds. Especially interesting to visit the area famous for Mr Percival and Storm Boy.
What a wonderful experience Today we boarded the boot for the Coorong Adventure Cruise and what an adventure it was. We saw seals sunning on the lock structure while we sailed through the Goolwa Barrage, an abundance of birdlife all the way and had a taste of some Cocles prepared by the skipper Bain. We had a fantastic walk over the sand dunes at Barker's Knoll to the Southern Ocean Our host Lauchie explained how the local Ngarrindjeri People selected many vegetation for bush tucker and medicine. He demonstrated how they collected Cockels from the beach and lots of other interesting things. After boarding the vessel again we given a very nice and tasty lunch and sailed to Cattle point where we were guided by Bain to a few Middens used bythe local Aboriginal tribe and he demonstrated how the collected fresh drinking water from almost the top of the dunes. On our way back to Goolwa we were treated with some afternoon tea. Thank you guys for giving us these valuable lessons and looking after us so well.
