We boarded the Coorong at Goolwa for a 6 hour cruise through the National Park. Our guide Lachie was so knowledgeable. Lunch was amazing. We had a great day despite very changeable weather. Great value for money!

This 6 hour cruise was just great, and worth every $. Rupert has a wealth of knowledge about the natural assets of the Coorong and also about the Aboriginal culture of the area. We saw plenty of wildlife, went on two lovely walks and had a packed lunch better than what you get in some restaurants!

A lovely boat cruise on the Coorong. A belated 80th birthday present for my husband from his daughters. The cruise was absolutely excellent our tour guide Lachy was extremely informative and very knowledgable. He gave us all (14) passengers on the boat a pleasant morning tea/coffee break, a lovely lunch and afternoon tea. He was very competent, friendly and good at his job. Explaining all about the birdlife, this was absolutely splendid as there were lots of pelicans, cormorants and many other species of birdlife, the barrages, sandbanks, condition of the water, aboroginal issues in the area and answered any questions which were put to him. We tasted the wild food as the natives had done ate some splendid buns which were locally made. A really enjoyable trip to be recommended, we would certainly do it again. Binoculars are a must. Thank you Lachy we all thought that you were exceptional.

What an excellent morning to be cruising the Coorong. Perfect weather, a crisp spring morning, and the sun was making the water on the lakes glisten. An abundance of water bird life can be seen on the Coorong / Murray River wetlands. We saw pelicans , cormorants, swans, ducks, emus feeding and sunning themselves .... plenty of migratory birds find their way here. Seals were also seen frolicking near the lock. The Coorong / lower Murray also home to the traditional owners the Ngarrindjeri people, and their culture was respectfully told to us by our captain/host. We stopped for an easy short guided walk across the dune which saw us emerging on the side of the spectacular great southern ocean. Back on the cruise for some morning tea. Learnt so much on this cruise. This was the 2.5 hour Coorong highlights cruise. Our captain was Lachie , and he did an excellent job as guide and captaining the cruise. Well worth doing this cruise for a greater appreciation of the area. Loved it.
