Coorong Discovery Cruise
Spirit Australia Cruises is a family owned and operated company with three generations of experienced boat building and cruising operations. Captain Jock Veenstra has continued the family tradition of building and operating boats specifically designed for calm inland waterway conditions.
On this tour you'll enjoy a delicious lunch is served on board as we cruise downstream from the port of Goolwa along the historic wharf & towards the Goolwa Barrage. Travel through the lock chamber, down to sea level and spot a few lazy fur-seals lounging about. We then meander along the waterways of the Coorong, following the last kilometres of the mighty Murray River to the Murray Mouth and the its opening to the Southern Ocean.
Cruise on past the Murray Mouth and into Storm Boy country, passing by the quaint fishing village of the Coorong Shacks before pulling up onto the beach for a optional guided walk through the dunes, Indigenous Midden site, rich cultural interpretation and bush-tucker trail to the infamous 90-Mile Beach and the roaring Southern Ocean.
Learn the 'Coorong Shuffle' and dig for Pipi's on the beach before returning back to the vessel and continuing our cruise past Storm Boy filming sites and towering dunes. Afternoon read more...
