What You Can Expect
Your Moreton Island 4WD tour will take you along Middle Road passing through thick eucalyptus forest, featuring beautiful grass trees up to 250 years old, before reaching 'the Desert', home of sand boarding on Moreton Island.
Sand boarding is an awesome, fun, high-adrenalin activity. Speeds of up to 50 kilometers per hour can be reached. From beginners, young children and families to the most adventurous adrenalin junkie, Moreton Island is the perfect place to experience the thrill of sand boarding. Make sure you bring your camera as there will be plenty of photo opportunities.
After your sand boarding adventure there will be time to relax on a white sandy beach, or take a dip in the blue waters while a fresh picnic lunch is prepared.
After lunch, it's time for a guided snorkel around the Tangalooma Shipwrecks. The 15 shipwrecks located just 50 meters off the beach provide wonderful snorkeling opportunities. See a huge range of marine life including blue and orange banded parrotfish, big eye trevally, blue-tang surgeonfish (Dory) and clown fish (Nemo)!
For those who prefer not to snorkel, kayaking around the Tangalooma Shipwrecks is a fantastic alternative. See the magnificent shipwrecks from above the water for a completely different outlook of Moreton Bay and its spectacular scenery. Kayaking may also be offered as an alternative to snorkeling should conditions be unfavorable. Please note: Snorkeling is subject to tide and weather conditions and may change without notice.
You'll cruise back to the mainland by ferry before returning to your Brisbane hotel.
The tour guide was great and accommodating. The provided lunch was not very substantial (it probably cost $2.00) nor healthy (small deli meat sandwich and a side of donuts and cookies).
What an adventure! From the ride into the island to the sandboarding. It was great. I opted for kayaking instead of snorkeling and had a blast. Others that snorkeled near the ship wreck saw some really cool stuff. Highly recommended!
An action-packed day with snorkelling being the main event. It was hard work swimming out to the wrecks, round them and back against the current. Andrew, the guide/driver, knew his stuff and helped less able swimmers. This is for serious action-people only - there is no chance of a rest half way round as it is deep water. A chance to get away from boring coach tours. You will be wet, covered in sand and bounced around in a 4x4 car as your drive along the beach for miles. You stay in your swimmers all day. No toilets (hole in the ground, or wait for the ferry). No roads - hence need for 4x4. Bring sunscreen (waterproof), insect repellent, towel, swimmers and flip-flops as these make it easy as there are no changing facilities.
I thoroughly recommend this tour. Small group of eight on the day worked well, any more and the 4x4 would be too cramped.
The picture associated with this tour is misleading - I wouldn't recommend it if younger than 17.
We didn't get to sandboard as it had been raining so we did a tour of the island instead. I think the day varies based on tides, weather and participants.
Had the best day. The tour guide was great, kept the group laughing and having a good time. Awesome experience, awesome place, totally recommend. Would do it every weekend given the chance
the tour was snorkeling gear included.My friend and I enjoyed the trip. The tour guide Andrew was kind and professional. Sandboarding was awesome although after couple of times climb up to the top of dune required good muscle workouts. lol. the whole island does not have proper road so we were sitting back of 4WD and enjoyed humps n bumps that we felt. The snorkeling near 15 shipwreck was the most memorable event for me. It was my first ever snorkeling so Andrew gave me a life jacket to put on so I was comfortably and safely did snorkeling. This trip has only two activities: sandboarding and snorkeling but from morning 7am for pick up to 7pm to drop off at Roma street bus stop 125, it was pretty busy day. The tour price was very reasonable which included picnic lunch. It is worth to go there with this tour! I would like to go there again!
Tour guides were good characters. Heaps of fun. Highly recommended
I enjoyed snorkelling at the ship wreck, we saw a shark!
The activities were fun, the guide was informative and friendly, and the pace of the trip was relaxing and not too rush. I had a great experience!
My teenage son and I went on this excursion. I must admit I was a bit nervous since I don't snorkel. First of all, we were picked up punctually and made our way to the MICAT for the ferry ride over. Our driver, Nathan made us feel very comfortable and had a great sense of humour. The ferry ride overe was great. once we arrived, snorkeling was first on the agenda due to the tides. I passed on the snorkeling and walked on the beach and swam but my son, who had never snorkel led before, did it. He enjoyed the snorkeling tremendously. While Nathan made lunch for us on e beach, we swam and kayaked. Then off to the Desert for sandboarding. The drive there was an adventure in itself but the driver was very careful and it was fun, rocking and rolling!
The sand dune was huge but Nathan gave us all very good instructions on how to do it safely. I am not a daredevil but I even did it twice and loved it!! We then drove back to the beach to catch the ferry back. It was an amazing day. I am so glad we did it!!
Nathan was very good narrating along the drive and letting us know what we were seeing, where we we going. I would highly recommend this trip to all. It was a beautiful day!
