What You Can Expect

Tangalooma Resort Moreton Island Day Cruise with Optional Dolphin Feeding

Tangalooma Ship Wreck, Moreton Island

An easy boat ride from Brisbane, Moreton Island is the third-largest sand island in the world and makes a fantastic escape from city life. Your full-day adventure begins with coach pickup at your Brisbane or Gold Coast hotel and an approximately 75-minute ferry ride across Moreton Bay.

Once ashore, head to your base camp for the day — the family-owned Tangalooma Resort. The day is yours to spend as you please, with a bevy of optional activities to choose from (at own expense). Adventure seekers, get your adrenaline pumping with a high-speed sand tobogganing ride, quad bike tour over sand dunes or unforgettable parasailing flight. 

Take to the waters and snorkel among several shipwrecks that lie just off shore, paddleboard and kayak on the calm bay surface or embark on a marine discovery cruise aboard a catamaran. Or, simply relax on the sandy beaches and take advantage of many free activities including squash and tennis courts, croquet, badminton and beach volleyball. The tour includes a lunch voucher that can be redeemed at any of the resort’s four on-site cafés and restaurants 

Extend your day with an optional dolphin feeding experience in the evening (select option at booking). Each night, a pod of wild bottlenose dolphins swims up to the resort shore to happily accept food is straight from the hands of visitors and eco-experts. Wade into the bay waters to take part in this memorable encounter with the playful creatures. 

After the scenic ferry ride back to Brisbane, your full-day tour concludes with drop-off back at your hotel.

If you have a day to spare, the additional activities is well worth the trip. Sand Tobogganing, quad biking and dolphin feeding was suburb.

Even on a very wet day when there were no beach activities happening this was a great tour.. They did all they could to show us different things on the island when what was planned could not happen because of the weather. It was a joy to go into the sea with the dolphins.

Fantastic opportunity and a once in a lifetime chance to feed dolphins. Went on the whale watching cruise and saw many humpback whales but the highlight was feeding Echo the dolphin. Will definitely stay overnight at Tangalooma on my next visit.
