Boating Questions

The marina and lagoons are all excavated to allow approximately 3m depth at pool level.

Depending on water level, water flows and Government restrictions and the experience of the skipper you can venture to the Coorong, Lakes Alexandrina and Albert and the length of the River Murray.

Some vessels can go out through the mouth when conditions are appropriate but its not recommended without a pilot

The Coorong is home to Mulloway, Salmon Trout, Bream, Flounder and Coorong Mullet. The River has Callop, Red Fin and European Carp.
