TripAdvisor Reviews

5 star ratingCoorong discovery We had 17 on a recent cruise on the Coorong. The 'captain' was extremely informative and certainly appeared to enjoy the telling us about all the different aspects of the Coorong. His assistant was also very helpful, explaining a lot about the vegetation and fauna on a walk to the beach. A very enjoyable lunch was part of the 4 hour experience.WELL worth going on this trip!

5 star ratingA pleasant surprise This is the first time I have been on a sightseeing tour of the Coorong although I have lived in this lovely state all my life. I was really impressed with the professionalism of Matt and Nick but also their easy going friendliness. As mentioned in another review, during busy times of the year, they put on extra tours which was how we manged to get the last two seats for the Discovery Cruise. Although it was near the end of the season, we still saw some migratory birds and the seals on the barrage were a delight! Matt's knowledge of the birdlife and Nick's knowledge of the Coorong landscape was impressive. My daughter and I especially enjoyed learning how to 'fish' for the cockles on the beach. I would highly recommend this 4 hour tour for any local or international visitor.

5 star ratingOne of the best days out We did not plan our cur half day cruise but what a great surprise when we decided to do the cruise our crew Michael and Dave could not do enough for us, the knowledge they shared of the wildlife and environs was wonderful, there was plenty of birdlife and also lots of seals to be seen, the Coorong is full of life and is pristine. The lunch provided was of a high quality and served in individual trays, I believe they do take special requests in regards to specific needs, with ample quantity to suit most people.
