Pioneer Cruising

Captain Cook Cruises announces the dates for its 2011 Renmark Cruises

Departing on December 2 and 9, Captain Cook CruisesPS Murray Princess will take passengers on a voyage 420-kilometres down the Murray River. For seven nights, passengers will take in the sights from Mannum to Renmark, seeing pioneer history and picturesque river towns along the way.

As there are massive sandbars, hidden reefs and submerged forests to navigate, Renmark cruises are challenging voyages that can only be conducted at a certain time of the year. With challenge comes adventure, however, and as Murray Princess attempts to follow the footsteps of colonial pioneers, Captain Cook Cruises assures us that succeed or fail, passengers will have a lot of fun along the way.

The cruise will visit Portee Bar, Kingston On Murray, Cobdogla and Moorook, with excursions to Burk Salter Vineyard at Blanchetown, Morgan Museum in Morgan and historic Loxton, where exhibits tell the stories of our early settlers.
