What To Expect

After morning pickup from either Brisbane or the Gold Coast, catch the ferry to Moreton Island. You might spot dolphins, migrating humpback whales, and other marine animals on the way to Moreton Island.

Moreton Island is the third-largest sand island in the world. Travel by sturdy 4WD-vehicle along the sandy beach to Tangalooma Wrecks where you have a choice of activities. Snorkel with your guide among the Tangalooma Wrecks, 15 ships that were purposely scuttled to create a break wall, now inhabited by colorful corals, tropical fish, sea turtles, and other critters. Alternatively, use provided transparent bodyboards to take a look at the reef, or stay dry and enjoy the beach.

Refuel with a picnic lunch served on the beach, then hop into a transparent kayak and follow your guide on a tour of the Tangalooma Wrecks, watching an array of fish swim underneath your kayak.

Swap the sea for the sand as your guide steers your 4WD inland to reach the sand dunes. There, try sandboarding, an exhilarating sport that is comparable to tobogganing. Some people can reach speeds of up to 30 miles per hour (50 kph) while zipping down the dunes.

If time allows after sandboarding, return to Tangalooma Beach for a swim before reboarding the ferry. Your tour ends with return to your starting point in Brisbane or the Gold Coast in the evening.

(Please note: if conditions are unfavorable for snorkeling and kayaking, a 4WD island tour will be substituted).

Loved first time sand boarding. Great kayaking and snorkeling along the wrecks. Fun bouncing in the bus to the desert. Keith, Josh and Chloe were very professional, friendly and attentive. We had a great time. No problems at all even at 79 and 77

LAI_H, Apr 2023
We joined the tour with 6 pax, including 2 adults, 2 elderly and two 6 & 9 years old kids. During the trip, the staff tried their best to assist us to experience the planned items, especially the snorkeling. Much much appreciated for their patient and professional advice during the trip. They are very helpful! We had wonderful time on Moreton Island. Thank you for the arrangement. Highly recommended for all!
Action packed, beautiful fish!

Best day ever!!!

Best day ever. You don’t need to look around for other tours. This is the best one!! Me and my friends booked this tour and will remember it for the rest of our life’s!!
Island beautiful, guides rubbish
Nicole_C, Apr 2023
Moreton island is beautiful however tour operators were not very good. They felt rushed and did not interact with guests enough or give any information about island or marine life. They did not assist with snorkelling for people who had not done it before. Overall, they made it not worth the money.
I recommend Moreton Island trip
Abdullah_A, Mar 2023

wonderful experience
Karina_J, Mar 2023
The best tour I have taken so far!, All the staff was friendly and very supportive, and everything was organized on time so you could enjoy all three activities in the time frame. Highly recommended.
Very expensive
Ryan_J, Mar 2023
This trip was mis sold. Most of the tour is spent traveling. All in all you get half and hour per activity. The rest of the time is spent traveling or sitting and waiting for the ferry. Very disappointed
Fun experience
Sarah_F, Mar 2023
Sand boarding was a good first experience with a big hill. Snorkelling was really good with plenty of fish to see. Kayaking was fun with the see through kayaks. Staff were really nice and friendly.
11/10 Experience
Kate_A, Feb 2023
This activity will definitely be one of the major highlights of our trip! The organization of the day was spectacular, there was no wasted time! Each activity ran smoothly and optimized our time to spend every minute! The ferry ride is lovely and the island is fantastic but the staff that helped us throughout the day were everything more than exceptional!! Would recommend to everyone, food was excellent and plentiful as well!
Great experience in Moreton Island
Jihye_P, Feb 2023

Matthew_M, Feb 2023
Tour guides were amazing all day with their supervision and information about the activities. Very full on day with not much free time but extremely well organised so nothing gets missed out. Snorkeling and fish feeding was by far the best part.
Worst experience in...
Shravya_G, Jan 2023
Worst experience in snorkeling. No guidance at all they have just took us and left in the water. I'm not a swimmer, even after mentioning that, they didn't take a minimum responsibility
The best fun in the sun!
jayne_c, Jan 2023
The whole day was fabulous. The organisers didn't waste any time getting us into activities. Loved the variety of things to do - but the snorkelling around the wrecks was the highlight for us. Very professional and great value for money.
The tour was amazing!...
