Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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).
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Moreton Island
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.

My partner & I absolutely enjoyed the day! We got briefed by one of the tour guides while we were on the ferry & he couldn’t be nicer by assuring us that the activities would be amazing & that we would be in good hands so that we don’t worry about anything. Once we got off the ferry we headed for lunch right away. It was a “buffet-style” DIY sandwich - kept us energised for the rest of the day! All the activities were super well-planned; they split us up into groups right at the start & there wasn’t any confusion whatsoever, no standing around waiting for group members/tour guides. Everything was super organised & efficient which was really out of my expectations because I know how group tours can be (delays, unorganised etc..) Not to mention the tour guides we had! There were 3 guys in total, one in charge of snorkelling, one for kayaking & the last one (Scott) for sand boarding & they were absolutely pleasant & amazing to be around. Highly recommend to anyone who has a day to spare in Brisbane & wants to experience snorkelling!

I’m completely impressed with the professionalism of this crew. They take care of us every single minute. They have knowledge about everting in that island, the guide, Cris is such a amazing person. If you are looking for the best crew, just choose them, you will won’t regret. And about the island, is wonderful, the most clear water that I have seen in my life. Can’t wait for returning.

Best day, the crew were fantastic and really accommodated for our 5 year old. It was her first time on the reef snorkelling and they made her feel safe and secure. Nothing was too much trouble! A HUGE thank you for all their service. We loved it we are even considering the 2 day tour now!

Really good tour and well worth it. Kind, informative guides made it an enjoyable day. I'd advise wearing sunglasses for the sandboarding. I hit a small divot on the way down and spent three days cleaning sand out of my eyes.

Morten Island Get Wrecked Tour

Amazing and beautiful island. Sand boarding and kayaking was great fun but for me I could not do snorkelling and so very disappointing. I informed the guide that I had never done snorkelling before so he should have taken extra care to explain the use of equipment and help me out which he did not n took the group near the ship wreck area. I needed more helpful guide n instructor.So I’m unhappy about that.
