Spirit of the Coorong Cruises
Ranked #2 of 13 Tours in Goolwa
Certificate of Excellence
More attraction details
Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: Cruise from the old riverport of Goolwa, through the Barrage lock and across the River Murray mouth into the wetland wilderness and spectacular sand dunes of the Coorong National Park. See a seal colony lazing on the Barrage, flocks of native and migratory bird life and hear some of the Aboriginal and European history of the area. Expert commentary by the captain, lunch, afternoon tea and guided walk(s)are included on 3.5 hour DISCOVERY and 6 hour ADVENTURE cruises. For a shorter alternative a 2 hour MURRAY MOUTH cruise operates on Saturday mornings & Thursday mornings of the school holidays, during the months of October and April.

A group of ten of us all really enjoyed the 6 hour trip over Easter. As others have commented the staff were very well informed, pleasant and the commentary was excellent. The food provided was very good as well and we enjoyed the walk to the beach and into the midden. Very happy to recommend this cruise.

Booked the full day Adventure Cruise and our Guides Blair (?) and Dave were great Guides and passionate to share their information about of the Murray and Cooroy Rivers and National Park.
Even the boat was nearly full, it never felt like it. From the history of Goolwa and other coastal Harbours to the building of the barrages, right into the mouth of the Murray River with its dredges. A sample of freshly cooked Cockles was provided as well as visiting Indigenous sites and finding Bush Tucker. To top it off, lots of native Birds and our Guides were happy to point them out and give information about them.
Highly recommended and informative.

Five of us (3 locals; 2 from UK) had a great time on the boat and on the walk to the ocean. The two guys were friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. We couldn't fault a thing. Thank you

This was my second trip with Coorong Cruises and it was just as enjoyable as the first. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and very organised. Highly recommend spending a few hours on our beautiful waterways with Coorong Cruises.
