Charter Schedule

Date & time to suit

Departure times range from 10am right through to 4pm.


As we do not have an on-board toilet cruises are limited to 2 hours.

Please note that due to covid-19 this is not a walk-up service and requires prior booking or confirmation.

Departs From

Standard dock is the south end of the Goolwa Wharf

We can also operate from the Goolwa Aquatic club jetty (Barrage Road), the Coorong Quays (Tolarno Drive) or even right from your own doorstep if you have a private dock (call for details).

The Coorong Quays is the most wind-protected dock and the easiest for passengers with low mobility.

All cruises return passengers to the place of departure unless otherwise requested.


BOAT Capacity

Four (4) passengers

Our current commercial license restricts the number of passengers to 4 .

Please be aware that for recreational boating the capacity is calculated on weight (kg), however for commercial operation any person aged over 12 months is considered a commercial passenger.

To safely board & disembark passengers must have enough mobility to climb a short set of stairs. 



$240 per charter

Due to the requirements of our covid-19 management plan for the 2020 season we will ONLY be operating as a charter service.

This means the charter boat fee is always the same and not determined by the number of passengers.

We accept cash or payment via an on-board EFTPOS terminal.

Cruise Route


The boat operation has two modes of travel, on-the-plane (~35km/h) or cruising (~7km/h).

Cruise Route

The standard cruise departs from the dock crusing along the shoreline to the Goolwa Regatta Yacht Club and then to the Goolwa Barrage (on-the-plane) .

We then cruise through the Coorong Quays – the largest freshwater marina in the Southern Hemisphere.

We then head (on-the-pane or cruise) to the Hindmarsh Island (Kumurangk) Bridge and cruise to the northern side.

We then cruise across to the Goolwa shoreline and back to the Goolwa Wharf.

Port Pullen

The Murray Mouth?

For the 2020 season we have decided to not travel to the mouth – please contact Coorong Cruises for their service.

Historically Captain Sturt considered the Murray Mouth as where the river meets Lake Alexandrina – today known as Wellington.

We can give a comprehensive historical description of the mouth, in particular the effect of Western agriculture on this unique and fragile system.

We also provide strong argument as to why the Murray Mouth should today be considered as the trickle that flows through the Goolwa Barrage.

What to bring


No matter what the weather we always recommend a tight fitting hat/cap and a wind-proof jacket/jumper.

Food & drinks

BYO drinks and food – alcohol as well (in moderation). You are most welcome to have your lunch on the water at Port Pullen.


Toilet-trained pets are most welcome. A soiling surcharge does apply so if in any doubt please bring your pet bedding as well.
