We went for the Murray mouth cruise which is a pleasant trip from Goolwa past the barrage and out to the mouth of the river. The boat was comfortable and the captain was knowledgeable and entertaining.

This was a return cruise for our family and an introduction to the coorong for our interstate elderly parents. A great experience, very informative and friendly crew. Would defiantly return once again.
