    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Moreton Island, Queensland 4025 Australia

    You will be picked up from Bunk Brisbane, Fortitude Valley, Brisbane at 7:30am, then start your day cruise at the Newport Marina with check in on the boat, 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, 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 and you will arrive back at Fortitude Valley around 5:00pm
