Whether you love to be in the water or prefer to stay dry, you can check out Tangalooma Wrecks on this fully guided tour. A highlight: A chance to go sandboarding on sand dunes that could rival The Alps for mountain-based fun.
A super awesome day! Grant tour guide and Eric tour guide in training were very friendly, courteous and patient. Grant's knowledge of the island extensive. Didn't want the day to end.
We enjoyed ourselves and it was an experience to remember! Thanks very much :
I had a great time. The 2 guides that led us on the activities were very sure that we had a safe and fun time. Lunch was a healthy make you own and easy to eat on the beach. I would highly recommend this tour company. It is a very active, fast pace tour.
Enjoyed the entire day! Lots of fun even for this Granny. I did the sandboarding, snorkeling and kayaking! Our guides were great! Lunch was nice.
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.
I like the sandboarding the best. The kayaking was so and so. We could have gone farther away and for a longer period. Since the group was too big, we were split into two smaller groups and took turns to do kayaking and snorkelling. The corals near the wrecks were a disappointment, compared with those in Kota Kinabalu, or other islands.
But it was good that the operator organised everything and the lunch was fresh and healthy!
It was a cool trip, but the price/value could be better.
The guides were excellent and funny, so it definitly was not boring.
Sand-boarding was a crazy experience - You get a piece of plywood, it seems like taken from an old cupboard, but definitly is not specially created for this type of activity - you lay down on it and go head-first down the sand dune. seems scary, but was fun. but prepare to eat some sand :
The buffet/picknic lunch at the beach was perfect.
The guided snorkeling tour around the wrecks was nothing special, and the guidance only meant that there was someone showing us where to go, but there was no commentary.I think everybody would have figured a way around, so the guide is actually not necessary. Also there were not many colorful fish, most of the fish were the same. there is not much coral on the wrecks yet, so nothing special to see when snorkeling.
Similar as with the snorkeling was also the kayaking in the transparent kayaks. It was fun driving around, but there was actually no point in it, no goal, nowhere special to go, we just drove up and down by the wrecks and actually saw nothing in the water. We took the amateur kayaking group, but I recommend everyone who has been on a kayak or small boat, or raft before, or is a little into sports - take the advanced group. Do not know what else they did, but maybe they went a little further from the wrecks and possibly saw sth interesting.
Overall the trip was a nice experience, but in my opinion not totally worth the money.
It is good. I was excited and happy with some games as sandboard

I do not recommend the 1-day trip. We spent too much time traveling and did not have much time for fun stuff. However, I do not know if the 2-day overnight trip would be any better. Tours were disorganized - equipment was not ready to go, instructions on how to snorkel and kayak were insufficient. For example, no instructions were given on how to fit snorkel mask. Had difficulty finding guide while snorkeling and no information was provided on what we should be seeing in the sunken ship reef. Sun boarding was fun, but you spent much time and energy getting to site for 1 maybe 2 rides down sand hill. No information was provided during drive to sand boarding site i.e. how island was formed, pointing out interesting fauna or flora, history, etc.. Other company had a photographer taking photos of each person at sand boarding site, however that was not an option with this tour group. As bringing your camera or phone was risky with sand boarding, we have no photos of this adventure. Overall the pace was hurry up and wait. We ate lunch and were ready to suit up to snorkel, but tour guide was finishing lunch and was not ready. Then we waited 25 minutes for tour to get organized and ready to depart. Instructions were not clear on what we were supposed to do. Not enough kayaks had been pulled for this group so we waited for this to happen and had about 40 minutes to kayak. Instructions on how to kayak were minimal and over half the crowd struggled with this, meaning the whole group was frustrated and did not move efficiently through wrecks.
