Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Tangalooma Resort Moreton Island Day Cruise with Optional Dolphin Feeding. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Loved the trip it was amazing. Only comment I would make is, the dolphin feeding was at 6.30pm and our trip booked was returning at 4pm so we had to pay extra and change the time we can back. This was definitely the highlight off our trip, the dolphins were amazing. Maybe you should offer the two trips so people have a choice.
wonderful tour, i just felt pressed for time as i couldn't really fit in any excess tours etc. the tobogganing is something everyone should try sometime in live. the dolphin feeding really only involves feeding your dolphin 1 fish. still a fantastic experience in my opinion. my dolphin was a bit naughty (just like me ;-)) i would recommend this to everyone :)
Very nice trip and organization. The desert safari and sand surfing was great ! A bit long to wait until dolphin feeding, and cold but nice experience too. Just would have liked to have time to change clothes before going back to the boat and bus.
My husband and I were very impressed bu not only the natural beauty and all of the activties on offer, but also the customer service we encountered. We had a fantastic time on our ATV tour which matched our skill level (being comfotable on motorbikes) and would highly recommend it.
I had a lot of fun at Tangalooma Resort and wished we could have spent a few nights there. There was so much we could do in between the sand tobaganning and dolphin feeding we added in snorkeling the ship wrecks. Be aware, the sand toboganning was fun and I'm glad I did it, but was VERY SCARY at the time! You also won't need a facial or skin exfoliation treatment before going, you'll get one as part of the adventure so wear appropriate clothing for the ride down! Sand gets EVERYWHERE!
Tangalooma resort is a very beautifull place, with so many activities options or only to relax on the beach. What I didn't like so much is that take so much time to make the procedures for check in (first on visitor centre, wait for bus, go to warth, check-in on cruiser 1 hour before departure...).
Tangalooma is beautiful with its clear sea and white sandy beach. The ride over on the ferry was great and we saw some whales and dolphins too. The activities are well arranged so you know exactly what you're doing and at what time. If you want free time on the island then this trip doesn't really allow for that. I did the dolphin feeding. Remember the dolphins are wild, so no touching and it may not be quite what you imagine. You do get close and the dolphin takes the food from your hand. If you don't want to pay for the dolphin feeding you can still get great views of them all from the jetty. The only let down for me was the sand boarding. I would rather have spent some more free time on the beach.
actually only transfer and entry to the island is provided, your only time in the island
It was nice day trip however you have to book ur accommodation if you would like to do the dolphin feeding! Also food and drink is really expensive there so you need to bring your own food!!
Not a bad day out but the resort really isn't all that special. The beach is gorgeous but choices for food are very limited. I didn't stick around for the dolphin feeding so I can't comment on that.
Beautiful island, getting there on the ferry is part of the fun. Loads to do at the resort including the exciting sand tobogganing. Unfortunately when we were there it was too rough to go into the sea and feed the dolphins. They still arrived but we had to feed them from the jetty. Return ferry delayed due to bad weather and a very rough crossing back. This was apparently very unusual and only this stopped a highly recommended rating!

Funtastic, the island is well developed for fun and relaxation, should have stayed overnight. The boat is well maintained and the captain is quite helpful with infos for first time travellers to this island. F&B service is fine.
This was an excellent trip! The island is an amazing place. The only bad point was that there wasn't enough time there. I was picked up at 7.30AM and returned at about 6.30PM, but spent only 4.5 hours on the island. Well worth it though. The best thing to do in Brisbane!
A pleaseant day out. Unfortunately the weather was overcast and rainy. However, we had a little time lazing on the beach. Just went out for the day trip , not interested in the sporty side.
Hi all,well it a good day out but unfortunate for us we had really bad weather
so were unable too walk in the sea and feed the Dolphins and had too feed
them from the jetty,the staff were excellent,with better weather this would
a great day out for every one :-)
The Island it self is amazing and everything is fantastic (Worth the money to go there for a day or more), but be aware of that if you book this trip you will only have 3 hours on the island if you are not feeding the dolphins, which means that you only have time to do one or two water-activity and not seeing the whole island. The sail trip out to the Island takes 1½ hour.. But it was an amazing island and a it is paradise!
The dolphins were amazing - definitely turned on the highlights - only wish it was for longer.There rest of the package was disappointing i.e.the buffet lunch and the sand tabogganing. The lunch buffet was very poor quality - nothing tasty, steak was overcooked, even the fried rice was tasteless. This is a island resort - you would expect some seafood - nope - this is downright normal takeaway corner shop food in unlimited quantity & tasteless. As for the sand tabogganning - don't expect proper tabagonning board which you can sit on, this is some makeshift board which is not easy to pull up with your arms and still keep your knees up all the way down the slope and if you don't, you will experience turbulent sandstorm all around you. You basically need very strong arms and legs and - bring your goggles!!
The boat was kept waiting for a half an hour in the morning for 4 passengers. Since we were only going to have 6 hours on the island, this was a significant delay for a large number of people, for the convenience of so few. I would recommend a maximum delay of 10 minutes for late passengers. It is the responsibility of the passenger to get there on time, not for everyone else to loose holiday time waiting for them.
One of the worst trips of my life. The driver who picked us up and drove us back was a maniac and we thought we were surely going to die. The ride across to the island was chopping and uncomfortable (not your fault) but made the whole trip worse.
