Leaving from the pretty little town of Goolwa

Value for money, with an informative commentary

Loved the history and could relate the area to the Storm Boy movies

Plenty of giant seals, especially at the lock that you need to go through

Recommend this cruise to everyone, great for children

5 star ratingWonderful cruise into the historic Coorong A wonderful cruise along the Murray River, passing through a lock, seeing seals, black swans, pelicans and other birds. It was the real "Storm Boy" country. It was exciting hearing the history of the early days and how important the river was for transport and ship building. The boat took us to the mouth of the Murray River Wow! and along the Coorong with its sand dunes and scrubby vegetation. Lunch was delicious. Highly recommended.

5 star ratingCoorong Discovery tour how awesome Have wanted to visit the Coorong for many years and now it is done - maybe needs another visit. The Spirit of Coorong cruises folk were fantastic. Easy to book, the cruise itself was extremely well organised, the crew were knowledgeable and informative and great boat drivers ! Most interesting and best value for money tour we have undertaken for a long time.
