About
Don’t just visit Moreton Island from Brisbane or the Gold Coast—pack your trip with adventure. Skip the effort of self-drive and join a tour that makes the most of Moreton’s highlights, with watersports equipment provided. Ride the ferry across the water and take a 4WD to Tangalooma Wrecks to snorkel and kayak before a picnic and sand boarding. Port transfers are included, with National Park and ferry fees extra.

Highlights
  • Swap self-drive for a guide and 4WD to take you to the island’s best bits
  • Snorkel and kayak at Tangalooma Wrecks and surf the dunes by sand board
  • Includes picnic, equipment, and transfers; with entry fees and ferry extra
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).

    Moreton Island
    Stop: 6 hours - Admission excluded
    In the morning, your 4WD coach picks you up from the Gold Coast or Brisbane, then travels to the ferry to Moreton Island. During the 75-minute ferry ride across Moreton Bay, take in views from the deck or cabin, keep an eye out for dolphins and other marine life. When you reach the island, your 4WD-vehicle drives along the sand to the Tangalooma Wrecks where you have several options for beachside fun. Follow your guide on a snorkeling tour of the famous shipwrecks; the 15 vessels were purposely sunk here to create a breakwall. This resulting reef is home to colorful corals, tropical fish, trevally, yellowtail, wobbegong, kingfish and more. If snorkeling doesn’t appeal to you, use the provided transparent bodyboards to paddle in search of turtles, reef fish, coral and other critters, or simply relax on the white-sand beach. After the snorkel tour, your guide serves a picnic lunch before leading a tour on transparent kayaks to explore the Tangalooma Wrecks. Stay dry as you view an amazing array of fish right below your kayak. (Please note that a 4WD tour around the island will replace the snorkeling and kayaking if conditions are unfavorable). Next, hang on tight as your driver takes your 4WD on rough inland tracks to tall sand dunes that are ideal for sandboarding, a fun, high-adrenaline activity comparable to tobogganing. It is possible to reach speeds of up to 30 mphr (50 kph) as you zip down the dunes. After sandboarding, return to the coast and enjoy a swim at Tangalooma Beach (if time allows). Then catch the ferry back to the mainland and reach Brisbane or the Gold Coast in the evening.

Wonderful day trip - very well organised and the perfect amount of time for each activity. The snorkelling is amazing - so much to see. During my day I saw a turtle, dolphins and so many beautiful fish.
I opted out of Sandboarding (I had done it before, and knew how hot it would be) so spent those 2hrs on the beach, walking and swimming.

Chris was a super friendly, professional tour guide - 5 star rating to him and his team, as well as the Island and activities.

Highly recommend this day trip!

Our group of 6 people enjoyed the day at Moreton island. The trip execution was flawless considering travel and adventure. All facilities were available in addition of delicious /fulfilling lunch. My friends and I experienced a lively atmosphere. Sand-boarding guides were very supportive and friendly. Vivi, our snorkeling instructor made this experience more exciting with her constant supervision and enlightening guidance, kayaking was great as well. I strongly advice this tour (day trip) to others, all the best
