Highly recommend this trip, simply awesome. The tour guides Matt and Bob from Sunsetsafaris are caring, funny, and responsible.They not only taking care of the fun making of the trip, they do care about your safety as well, really appreciate their patient and caring especially during the snorkeling, as we are not a good swimmer.

The sandborading is a must-try thing in Moreton island! There is one suggestion I can give, probably the participants could be provided a safety goggle during sandboarding, to prevent the sand went into eyes, especially for those who are wearing contact lens, it will be useful.

Moreton Island is a great place to simply unwind and relax. The bus picked us up on time and the boat ride across was good. When our day had finished our bus driver dropped us back to the hotel. Very reliable and our bus driver was terrific.

This excursion was great! The sand surfing was a lot of fun, and very different. We had a wonderful day, good lunch, a nice trip to Moreton. Highly recommend.

Our tour guide was excellent (sorry we didn't catch his name). One man show taking care of a group of 11 people, leading the snorkelling activity, sand boarding and prepared our lunch. The tour itself was rather short, 5.5hrs only (reach Moreton Island at about 10am and ferry depart at 3.30pm).
Not the kind of leisure snorkelling I was looking for since we weren't good swimmers - we had to swim against the strong current. In another words, you need to be a really good swimmer to enjoy the snorkelling activity. Sand boarding was really fun though!

Moreton Island is great! Sandboarding was 100% fun! The shipwrecks are keeping a big secret and snorkeling around the wrecks was great! Over a 100 different species of fish makes this adventure special. Unfortunately the wrecks are "used" as a harbour for lots of private boats that made this place messy. Thats why four out of five points for this at all great experience and day!

The trip was terrible from the very first minute that the tour company picked us up at the hotel! The truck that you travel in is uncomfortable and not nice at all. The trip was way too expensive for the all day tour that we received. The boat ride was very rocky and numerous people were getting sick. The trip was way too long, the accomodations for lunch and bathroom breaks were horrible. The excursion was very basic with no frills. We didn't even have bottled water supplied during the day or plates for lunch. Maybe we were supposed to bring water or snacks with us for the all-day long trip. If so, this was my fault for not reading the info correctly. The sand boarding involved very strenous walking up high hills. The sand boarding was basically sliding down a hill on a piece of ply-board. The water around Moreton Island was extremely murky and we could not see hardly anything in the water around wreckages. Incredibly disappointing! The end of the afternoon was just basically sitting around on a ugly beach with no other amenities! This tour is NOT worth the time or money!!!! Afterwards, we joked with each other that we couldn't believe that we booked such an awful tour!
