A great afternoon, Dan and Nathan were both enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We went through the Goolwa barrage to the Murray Mouth, went for a little hike at Barkers landing and saw lots of seals. A light but pleasant lunch and afternoon tea were provided

The 5 hours goes past very quickly. Comfy boat, very knowlegable skipper/narrator, and the most magnificent scenery. We learnt all about the aboriginal people that lived there and got up close with wildlife
