Seafood & Seals
Get close up and personal with the beauty of the Coorong on our picturesque ½ day trip from Long Pt jetty to the Tauwitchere Barrage. This is where the freshwater lakes are separated from the salt water of the Coorong. Enjoy a scenic boat ride and observe the birds wheeling overhead, meet the pelicans and even feed them a fish or two.
See the seals lazing on the barrage structures before enjoying a gourmet morning tea at the foot of some amazing sandhills. Skipper Glen will provide an informative commentary and answer all of your questions.
A short boat ride to The Needles Island arriving at a shallow sandy bay and clambering up one of the tall sandhills of the Coorong. At the top marvel at the stunning vista of the Coorong and then turn to view the waves crashing on the ocean beach of the Younghusband Peninsula. Observe animal tracks on the shore and spot an emu or kangaroo while climbing a magnificent sandhill.
Spectacular for a happy snap or professional photography or spending some quiet time exploring and contemplating nature at its best. Or imagine a romantic sunset proposal to that special someone in your life.
