Frequently Asked Questions
You can get on board Elfin from 2.30pm on the day of your booking, with your instruction lesson at 3pm. We recommend you are right on time, as it can take the full 30 minutes to load everything on board and get settled in.
Elfin needs to be returned at 9.30am, so that you are fully offloaded by 10am.
It’s a great idea to moor at Sturt Reserve in Murray Bridge on your last night and wander up for a meal in a local pub or restaurant. The reserve is beautiful and in the morning you’ll just have a short cruise downstream to get back to our Marina by 9.30am.
Murray Bridge has a plentiful choice of shops, and we would love you to shop local!
Downstream there are good shops in Tailem Bend, but not within an easy walk of the river, while upstream at Mannum there is a Foodland, Bakeries and other great shops just a few hundred metres from public mooring.
We recommend you don’t over think your plans as you might find the perfect mooring spot where the water is beautiful, the fish or yabbies are biting and you just feel the need to stay put!
