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.

, Mar 2018
Dolphin Feeding too crowded and the photographer had to take care of two groups and hence not in the right time to take the proper shoot most of the time . The marine discovery was average too - never get to see any dolphin, dugong except turtle from far for seconds only. The only thing I enjoyed was to see Dolphins gathered in the evening waiting to be fed in close distance.

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.

Our first van driver to Roma Station was a little late and very unpleasant. Aside from that, it was a great trip and we enjoyed our desert safari tour as well as the dolphin feeding. Very organized and timely. We did not have much time to do other activities as we had a set schedule so we just relaxed on the beach. Moreton Island is beautiful and worth a visit!

Its was fun at moreton island!! Beautiful beach, sunset and activities!! Awesome !!. But if tour agent could provide more information such as beach towel can be rent in the resort and feeding dolphin might get wet, in order to let us know what's we need to prepare before depart.

There was quite a lot of hanging about to get to the resort. Catamaran very busy and noisy. Beautiful island with stunning beach. The resort not really 'my thing' so a very poor choice on my part. It was a very very hot day and I would have liked more shaded peaceful outdoor space to avoid having to cool off inside! The best bit for me was the journey back to the mainland on a much smaller boat with outdoor seating.

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!

The driver was over 30 minutes late in picking me up from my hotel. The one thing not mentioned in the tour description is that you only get 4 hours on the island and you spend 6 hours in transit! I was shocked! The bus ride from Brisbane was over a half hour. Then we waiting nearly 15 minutes to board the boat. Then, the boat ride was 75 minutes!! Just to turn around and do it all again a few hours later. I thought I'd have a long day to enjoy the island and instead it felt rushed. Also, you need a cash deposit for ALL of the activities. Want to kayak? Deposit. Want to use a locker? Deposit. Want to ride bikes? Deposit. I wish I was told I'd need piles of cash to participate. Finally, I called the day before to confirm and ask if I need to bring a towel or anything else, and I was told no. They said there were towels at the resort. But they didn't mention that the only way to get a towel from the resort was with a 20 cash deposit! If you decide to buy one there, it's 30! I paid over 100 US to spend 6 hours in transit, then paid 30 for a towel, and didn't get to do any of the activities because I only had a VISA and not enough cash for all the deposits. What a waste of time and money. Beyond frustrated.

What a beautiful Island where you can relax to the sound of the ocean, or pack in an activity filled day of snorkeling, sand boarding and all the water sports you can get. The dolphins are magical and I had the pleasure of a wild dolphin coming a meter from me whilst I was swimming in the afternoon! My only reservation was that the dolphin feeding was too busy. The resort itself needs to limit numbers of people feeding in one evening so you get a true experience.
