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.

We had been rather concerned about this trip because of the farcical experience we had had two days before on another trip run by JPT tours.

I am very pleased to say that this trip was excellent. JPT tours took us to the boat which took us to Tangalooma Bay. When we arrived at Tangalooma Bay we were greeted by resort staff who showed us round and explained the days activities to us. We were given an information sheet and we were then able to choose and book up anything we wanted to participate in. We had already booked to feed the dolphins and we were given instructions of where to meet and at what time. The rest of the day was free for us to choose what we would like to do until the Dolphin Feeding. We chose to go on a boat trip in the bay, watched wild kookaburras being fed and generally spent the remainder of the day looking around before going back to the pier not long before dusk to watch the Dolphins starting to arrive in the bay before were went down to feed them. For us this was a once in a life time opportunity and we had chosen to pay the extra so that we could feed the dolphins. It was amazing to watch the dolphins hunting for themselves before it was our turn to go and feed them. This was an experience which I shall remember for the rest of my life.

Amazing experience. Very well organised tour. Guide very knowledgeable and very friendly. Would recommend Viator to anyone going to Brisbane . Infact all my booking to France, London, Hong Kong, Japan just to name this few with Viator was always up to my expectation. Thank you Viator!

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.
