The Port of Goolwa is the last major stop of the mighty Murray-Darling River basin, and Australia’s unique geography presented many challenges to early colonisation. And it was this location which meant Goolwa played a major role in Australia’s early expansion, using the waters for transport, business and pleasure.

Our modern business is based on exactly the same 150 year old criteria.

We provide a local knowledge, personalised cruise option. Learn about Goolwa & Hindmarsh Island from the unique & relaxing on-water perspective, with the flexibility to cruise when it suits you, and the options to adjust the cruise to suit what you want to see & where you want to go.
