    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Moreton Island, Queensland 4025 Australia

    Start your day at the Newport Marina with check in on the boat at 8:00am with tea coffee and biscuits.

    You will arrive at Moreton Island around 9:20am, stopping if we see any dolphins on the crossing.

    You will be ready and dressed in your wet suit as we arrive, to jump straight into the water for an action packed boom netting ride.

    We then head over to the Tangalooma Wrecks where we start our 50 minute optional extra Guided Snorkeling and Fish Feeding Tour. Please note you MUST be able to swim to participate in this activity and it's $20 extra per person payable on the day.

    You will then enjoy free time on the beach to swim, sunbath and climb the famous sand hills, returning to the boat for fresh local prawns, ham off the bone, salad, bread rolls and roast chicken, all cooked and prepared earlier that morning for you.

    Now is the time to head to the bar grab a cold drink and sit back and relax on the beach or the boat and take in the picturesque scenery.

    The afternoon will conclude with a relaxing Eco Tour, cruising the calm shallow aqua water spotting Dolphins, Dugongs,Turtles and other marine life. Take something away with you as you learn from the full commentary explaining the history of the Island, local marine life and habitat.

    The boat will return to Newport Marina at approximately 4:00pm.

    What a great day, so close to Brisbane. A quick trip on the super cat over to the pristine waters off Moreton island, we saw whales and turtles on the way over. Very well organized snorkeling through the wrecks and fish feeding was spectacular, anyone that hasn't experienced

    Yes, it is amazing how close we are to Brisbane and are still able to feel like your on a tropical island in the middle of no where. We are so happy that you had a great day, we love showing off our back yard.

    After 2 abortive attempts to see whales out of Byron Bay we were anxious as to how successful this trip would be, but we needn’t have worried! It was an amazing day, from the welcome on board with free coffee and biscuits all day to the amazing wildlife. We saw dolphins,

    Thank you for your kind words, we are glad your family had a great day and were finally able to see some whales, as well as boom-nett, snorkel and walk on the island with our jam packed day.

    Lisa and crew are great hosts. Got to see whales, dugongs, dolphins and turtles. Great commentary about wildlife and history of the area. Plentiful lunch of ham, prawns, cheese and chicken. Plenty of time to spend on Morton Bay and generally relaxing. Thoroughly recommend.

    Can't believe that this place is on our doorstep. We chose to take the cruise as an introduction to the island and we were not disappointed. The crossing was a little bumpy for the first 30-40 minutes but once at the island, things calmed down. Even a bout of rain later in the

    We are so happy you had a great day. Yes, unfortunately Mother Nature sometimes speaks loudly with her winds and we have to reschedule trips.We are lucky that we are small family owned and operated business and can reschedule for bad weather to make sure our customers have a safe and enjoyable day with their water activities. Keep an eye on our Facebook page as the we will see the whales on the inside of the island when they start heading south with their babies, in the next few weeks. We hope to see you again soon..
