Limited time meant we could only manage the two-hour cruise to the Murray Mouth, though would have loved to do the full Coorong. (Next time!) Still, thoroughly enjoyed our shorter trip - negotiating the lock, the basking seals, the super-abundant bird life. However, no doubt our highlight was walking across the sand beside the surprisingly modest mouth of the mighty... More

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... More

It seemed to me the idyll for rowing or sailing so it was a no- brainer in choosing the excellent comfort of The Spirit of Coorong cruiser,in our discovery tour of this pristine body of water. Its so clear that it is hard to believe the Coorong is connected to the muddy Murray River. There is a spirit about that... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 hour cruise on the Spirit of the Coorong. Mat was an excellent host. His commentary was informed, interesting and funny. Dave took us on 2 guided walks which again were informative and fun. It was great for the children on board to be able to have a run, and a paddle in the ocean. The... More

I took the 4 hour Coorong Discovery cruise while staying in Goolwa and found it to be a wonderful experience. Extremely informative on the Coorong/Murray system with excellent commentary from both Bain and Paul, topped with their enjoyable lunch as we cruised. For anyone interested in our Murray river system and the Coorong this is a " must do" tour.... More

Did the 6 hour Coorong Adveture Cruise and could not fault it. It was thoroughly professionally run from the first contact on the phone to the final docking.The commentary was knowledgeable, the walks interesting combined with a quality lunch. Bain's talk on the aboriginal middens and camp site empathetically presented with great backgound knowledge was a highlight.

We had some friends staying from Queensland and went on the Coorong Discovery Cruise on April 7th. The river and bird life we saw were fantastic. We have lived in Goolwa for 6 years and have been meaning to do this cruise ever since. It was made even more enjoyable with Matt's commentary, which was very knowledgeable and he had... More

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... More

Our 4 hour Coorong Discovery Cruise was one of the most enjoyable tours we have ever done. The cruise was interesting, informative and entertaining. It was obvious that Mat and Dave, our guides for the day, had an immense knowledge of the area, and they enthusiastically enjoyed sharing that knowledge in an engaging and humorous way. The lunch of salad... More
